The government ferociously and adamantly tracks GDP and GDP per capita.

We’re a country obsessed with production and profit.

I’m obsessed with people.

How about we start tracking things that matter like health, peace, and happiness?

Let’s put more emphasis there.

Our priorities are out of whack. We value the wrong things. We’re focused on the wrong metrics. We’re sending the wrong message.

I care more about my fellow brothers and sisters than how many goods we produced and shipped.

People first. Health first.
