That was a great interview - so unfortunate that Mr. Martin didn't see the light when he was in office, but better late than never I guess!

Mr. Martin actually funded some very important work on indicators while in office. He supported the Genuine Progress Indicator work undertaken by Mark Anielski (author of the Economics of Happiness). It's too bad we have not been able to tell this story better so we get more traction for truly valuing natural capital.
