Government not best placed to measure or act on wellbeing

BBC news quotes Dr Stephen Davies

Dr Steve Davies appeared on the BBC Breakfast sofa this morning to discuss the UK's first official wellbeing report. He questioned whether the government was best-placed to measure - or act - on such information.

He told BBC News: "It seems to me that we have enough trouble with governments trying to target something like GDP which we understand quite well without them having to try and target aggregate wellbeing as well."
