GDP is much more than a simple statistic. It has become the overarching benchmark of success and a powerful ordering principle at the heart of the global economy. But the convergence of major economic, social and environmental crises has exposed the flaws of our economic system which values GDP above all else as a measure of prosperity and growth.
In this provocative and inspiring new book, political economist Lorenzo Fioramonti sets out his vision of a world after GDP. Focusing on pioneering research on alternative metrics of progress, governance innovation and institutional change, he makes a compelling case for the profound and positive transformations that could be achieved through a post–GDP system of development. From a new role for small business, households and civil society to a radical evolution of democracy and international relations, Fioramonti sets out a combination of top–down reforms and bottom–up pressures whose impact, he argues, would be unprecedented, making it possible to build a more equitable, sustainable and happy society.

"Fioramonti′s critique of the limitations of GDP is extremely well constructed, highly appropriate and relevant."
Colin Crouch, University of Warwick, UK
"What governments don′t track today is often far more important than what they do because what we measure changes how we behave  and how we think. And changing what we think is essential if we are to build a more sustainable economic system. Read this fascinating and well–written book  and change the way you think!"
Graeme MaxtonSecretary General of the Club of Rome and bestselling author of The End of Progress

"Prof. Fioramonti s The World After GDP is a very important study in helping us to understand the role of GDP in getting the world into its present condition, and what aspects of our understanding of GDP may help guide us through the coming era of great change. "
