METRICS for MANAGEMENT
ROBERT KENNEDY on GDP
The GDP as a metric of performance is fatally flawed,

This is damning ... all of these are added in ...
 •   The cost of advertising ... to promote smoking
 •   The cost of violence in the cities (remember this is 1968);
 •   The revenues from films that make violence cool;
 •   The guns that bring violence into our society;
 •   And on and on and on ...............

What is excluded is just as bad ...
 •   What we do within our familities;
 •   Like being nice to a neighbor;
 •   And thousands of other behaviors ...............
