The rift between citizens and their governments is now tangible. Contenting ourselves with perfecting the DGP and standard indicators is no longer an option if we are to give meaning to the economic world of the 21st century. Recent indicators have reflected essential aspects of well-being such as health, education and trust, or the compatibility of human development with ecological challenges. Milestones for civilization, these indexes will breathe new life into the public debate and serve as compasses for new policies and new practices at all levels. To measure is to govern!
