It is because…

It is worth remembering…

If you are in poverty, it is not because there is a shortage of goods, it is only because of the way we quantify wealth.

If your house was dispossessed, it is not because there is a shortage of houses, it is only because of the way we quantify wealth

If you have been laid off, it is not because no work needs doing, it is only because of the way we quantify wealth

If your government is in debt, it is not because any real wealth has gone, it is only because of the way we quantify wealth.

We need to change the way we measure wealth.
