Creating a new measurement of wealth NEO GDP

Article: creating a new measurement of wealth; NEO GDP. The interregnum divide today between financial and human wealth is broad and deep. Can we bridge that gap and devise a 21st Century Technology & Human Capital NEO Economic System before it’s too late? Instead of valuing the worth of a Nation by financial monetary values alone, can we not measure by the value of human value as well?

The 21 Century is complex. Changes in old ways must happen as we move forward into the 21st technological age. For today’s new age, we must also create a new GDP measurement, replacing a two-hundred-year-old industrial age measurement of a country’s wealth. A more intelligent, conscious, caring, and inclusive partnership way to measure what we produce and spend our financial, natural, and human capital on?. We all know that what we measure we generally achieve. We believe how we measure GDP needs to be updated. We need a new matrix for measuring GDP. a NEO GDP.

Today we measure our wealth as a Nation by GDP, Gross Domestic Product. We use financial, but not human worth indicators of wealth. We measure money generated and spent on war, bombs, missiles tanks, oil spills, natural disasters, and cleanup. In GDP we measure and value the financial value of addictive pharma drugs and tobacco that harms not value life. We measure the Incarceration of millions of our population. We measure and therefore value that which harms and devalues life, not uplifts and makes life worth living.

We measure material value but diminish the value of raising children, and feeding the poor and homeless in America. We must value and protect our water, soil, earth, and animals, and support and uplift one another.

I am hopeful and live in awe & wonder of life each day. And many today walk the path to creating a better 21st Century Economic System. Yet, the interregnum today is broad and deep. It feels like time is running out to cross from the old to the new. We need curious, open conversations like this TEDx talk from Riana Eisler.

Perhaps this TEDx talk presented 10 years ago is not too late. Perhaps we were in denial and not ready to hear it then, but ready o hear it now.


How do we build a Caring Economic System?
