"The Calvert-Henderson Quality of Life Indicators are important
to anyone who cares about a sensible economy, a healthy planet and
a livable life for all grandchildren. We must get beyond the flawed
macro-economic indicators and archaic accounting which now distort
societal deliberations and decisions and this book is a sensible,
significant step in the right direction."

"As the U.S. transitions from an industrial economy to an
information economy, it is incumbent upon our government to restructure
how we measure GNP and GDP. It is essential so that we might more
judiciously spend taxpayer dollars. The Calvert-Henderson Quality
of Life Indicators are the foundation upon which national indicators
must build. It is a systems approach that better reflects the real
world'! A must read for every Member of Congress, agency officials
and especially economic reporters and pundits."
- Claudine Schneider
Former Member of Congress
"The Calvert-Henderson Quality of Life Indicators is one of

"The Calvert-Henderson Quality of Life Indicators are timely
a solid foundation for the difficult decision-making
that lies immediately ahead. Without these Indicators, how will
we know when progress has been made?"
