A short look at the history of the GDP metric, including it's faults and strengths, how it is consistently misinterpreted and misapplied . Additionally the author reviews some of the other metrics that are attempted to offer a more holistic view along with the faults that these indices have. This quick read is very informative though not complete and should be read by everyone.
