  1. I have watched Michael Green on TEDTALK. His arguments make a lot of sense. Public policy and action should focus on improving the quality of human life and not numbers (economic stats). We need to look at means and ends. Economic growth should be viewed as one of the complimentary means and not the destination as most of our contemporary economists view it.
