Vermont Adopts Genuine Progress Indicator

Vermont is the first state to pass legislation to adopt a genuine progress indicator, which will measure things such as clean air and water and  volunteer work that are not otherwise accounted for in the standard gross state product. These things have a real value, but if they are not measured, then their degradation, for example air or water pollution is not counted as a cost. http://vtdigger.org/2012/05/30/an-alternative-to-the-traditional-bottom-line/
