Is GDP A Good Measure Of National Wellness

This is an interesting oped about how GDP is not a good measure for wellbeing. While it might seam that rising GDP would indicate an overall betterment of a nation, it clearly is not digging deep enough. There are always winners and losers in development, and distribution of wealth measures are key to understanding what affects people on the ground in each country.
