  • 13.  
  • 14. Points worth noting…..
    • ‘ Community strength’ made a difference to recycling schemes

    • Co-production of knowledge: values impact can be measured
  • 17. The ‘well-being paradox’
  • 18. The ‘well-being paradox’
    • GDP Economics
    • is NOT a good measure of
    • the ‘progress’ of society
  • 19. Stiglitz Report…
    • Report by the Commission on the
    • Measurement of Economic
    • Performance and Social Progress
    • Professor Joseph E. STIGLITZ, Chair, Columbia University
    • Professor Amartya SEN, Chair Adviser, Harvard University
    • Professor Jean-Paul FITOUSSI, Coordinator of the Commission, IE
    • “… to consider what additional information might be required for the production of more relevant indicators of social progress”
  • 20. Stiglitz Report… and UK govt…
    • Part I: Classical GDP issues : measures of economic performance have to become more relevant to well-being by: shifting them from production to income and consumption (R1); emphasising the household perspective (R2) and distribution of income (R4); and accounting for wealth (R3) and non-market economic activities (R5);
    • Part II: Quality of Life . Well-being has dimensions beyond material living standards requiring measures covering issues such as health, education and environmental conditions, where objective and subjective aspects are captured (R6-R7) and cross-cutting issues are addressed (R8-R9-R10);
    • Part III: Sustainable Development and Environment . The essential ability to maintain and improve well-being over time requires new measures reflecting the importance of maintaining environmental ‘stocks’ and in particular our proximity to dangerous levels of environmental damage.
  • 21. Stiglitz Report… and UK govt…
    • The UK Government’s 2010 Budget Report also highlights this issue, noting: “ There is widespread acknowledgment that GDP is not the ideal measure of well-being.
    • The Government is committed to developing broader indicators of well-being and sustainability…
    • … with work currently under way to review how the Stiglitz, Sen, and Fitoussi report should affect the sustainability and well-being indicators collected by Defra, and with the ONS and the Cabinet Office leading work on taking forward the report’s agenda across the UK.”

    • ‘ Community strength’ made a difference to recycling schemes
    • EU thinks CSO input is important to balance R&D; FP7 has new funding mechanisms to encourage this e.g. BSG: CSO, MMLA
    • Co-production of knowledge: values impact can be measured
    • Nobel Prize economists say measuring GDP does not reflect ‘prosperity’; learn new ways; make new models
  • 23.  
  • 24.
    • Existing economics support consumerism more than a rounded ‘Prosperity’
    • What do we think ‘Prosperity’ is?
    • Mostly… localised.
    • (care of children, elderly parents, good neighbours/hood)
    • More money into local services; less consumerism
  • 25. Points worth noting…..

    • MASIS report says, maybe ‘science’ doesn’t belong only in uni’s…
  • 38. In summary….
    • Our economy has to re-structure
      • community level will be more important
    • Formal knowledge combined with informal knowledge is badly needed in this stage
    • The role of ‘science’ and its relationship to ‘society’ must surely change: EU may lead
    • Universities like Brighton have much to offer
    • The boundaries between educators, service providers, local authorities and civil society must surely start dissolving
    • I think…this transition is an inevitable consequence of the maturation of society/ humankind… are we there yet?
