Gross National Happiness
A measure of the happiness levels of a nation of people.
The idea of measuring gross national happiness (GNH) was suggested in 1972 by the king of Bhutan. GNH is meant to be a measure of the quality of life of a nation of people in a way that takes into account their psychological well-being, something that the more traditional measure of a nation of people, gross national product (GNP), clearly does not. However, there’s no agreed-upon definition of GNH or how to measure it.
