Pirate Television: John de Graaf and David Batker - What's the Economy for Anyway?


John talks about the misleading goals that the US economy aims for. The GDP, formed in 1930's, confirms that the creation and purchase of goods reflect a strong economy. John argues otherwise saying a good economy should produce a better standard of living, and not simply accumulation of ?stuff?. We need to find a better way to measure our success through art, health, family, and community because currently we are stuck in a economic society that is focused on the old goals of mass production of needless goods.
