7. Gross National Happiness

Gross National Happiness is Bhutan’s development philosophy based on Buddhist values that measures the quality of life based on the spiritual and mental well-being of its people. It does not reject the conventional method of measuring development – GDP but GNH is pursued as an alternative development philosophy. It’s always nice when the government lends a helping hand but when was the last time any of us actually believed our government wanted us to be happy? In Bhutan this is not something people have to wonder. Their government actually measures their countries happiness using a metric called the Gross National Happiness or GNH. They’re not perfect at providing happiness to their citizens but the fact that they acknowledge and measure happiness probably makes them better at keeping their people happy than other governments.
