This paper is intended as a contribution to the debate about the relationship between economic growth and national objectives, and the way in which achievement of the latter can be assessed by alternative indicators of economic and social performance. Faster growth of GDP is an instrumental rather than a final goal, as has been recognised in recent decades with the emphasis on growth as a vehicle for poverty reduction, notably in the setting of the Millennium Development Goals.
