This debate has provided the principal backdrop for work conducted by the Stiglitz Commission on the measurement of economic performance and social progress that was the subject of a report submitted in the summer of 2009. This session will be devoted to a discussion of the contributions of this Commission. What has it contributed to the debate? What have been its limits? What further research could be conducted? Is it reasonable to envisage that a new battery of key indicators will progressively replace GDP as the main guide of economic policies?
