520    "Gross domestic product is one of the best-known and most 
       powerful statistics in the contemporary world. It drives 
       government policy on a variety of vital areas, from health
       to education. Yet perhaps for the first time since its 
       invention in the 1930s, a wide range of people regard this
       icon of economic growth as a problem. Gross Domestic 
       Problem unpacks GDP -- what it measures, what it doesn't, 
       and why -- and reveals the powerful politics that have 
       allowed it to dominate today's economies. Lorenzo 
       Fioramonti demonstrates just how little GDP has to do with
       equity and social and environmental justice, and shows 
       that an alternative is possible."--Provided by publisher.
