Stop what you’re doing and read this

Summary:
It’s my interview with David Pilling about his new book, The Growth Delusion. One can’t over-stress how important it is that instead of always blithely holding forth on the movement of this or that indicator, we look behind the curtain at what we’re actually measuring…and what we’re leaving out. I’m not kidding, btw, when I assert that Pilling’s book is also pretty entertaining. So, check it out (the book, not the interview) and let me know if you agree with my positive take.
