Samudra Report No.83, September 2020


Endquote

World without GDP

Imagine there’s no GDP

It’s hard but we must try

Not just goods and services

We need to ponder why

Imagine we count happiness, even for a year

Imagine there’s no poverty

Wealth not in hands of few

More schooling, health and housing

Gender equity too

Imagine all the people, living happily

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

There’s Stiglitz, Sen and Daly

Let’s run with what they’ve done

Imagine social equity

Oh! Can’t you take that call

No need for greed or hunger

A sisterhood of all

Imagine all the people, sharing all the world

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only soul

I’m sure that more will join us

Till we realize our goal

(Inspired by John Lennon, nudged by Eddie Allison)

– John Kurien
