In 1971, the small country of Bhutan declared that wealth would no longer be measured by Gross National Product but rather by Gross National Happiness. Not money, but people’s happiness. The government set up a Department that would regularly measure “happiness” and keep track of how happy the people of Bhutan are in their day-to-day lives. And they put this value into practice in world affairs. For example, they created policies of environmental sustainability. Over the years, hundreds of countries, including the United Nations General Assembly, honored Bhutan’s commitment to happiness as worthy of imitation. Bhutan became known as the one tiny country that could change the world.
