John Adams wrote that the purpose of government was “the greatest quantity of human happiness.” What if we believed that was true? What if happiness was the actual purpose of our economy, and our public policy decisions were driven by the goal to maximize “the greatest quantity of human happiness?” How would that change our education system? More music, art, dance, woodshop? How would it affect workplace policies? More flextime, vacation time, more celebration, more community? How would it impact our local and national governments, our natural environment, our very lives? Imagine that the most important indicators for the health of our city were related to GNH: Gross National Happiness. This project will change the world as we know it! I BELIEVE in this project! Be a part of the movement!
