Reviewed for Labour/Le Travail, so I can't reproduce it here. I differ too much in outlook to the author to agree with his outlook - and as the book is about measurement, the subjectivity of his approach is a real problem.

This book keeps with the recent the trend of social-choice economists who are investigating aspects of human well-being. Its five types of capital taxonomy is a useful point of departure for good conversation. My main criticism is with B&N for not having enough copies.
