Abstract

GDP has been relied upon at every turn by the coalition government to demonstrate the credibility of its ‘long-term economic plan’. Ahead of the general election, LSE alumnus Philipp Lepenies will question how GDP came to be indispensable as the indicator for progress, and demonstrate why any attempt to reduce the impact of this figure on policy needs to start by understanding how it came to occupy the throne in the first place.
