The Inclusive Wealth Index presents the big picture: measuring countries’ wealth in terms of progress, well-being and long-term sustainability. It provides important insights into long-term economic growth and human well-being.

The inclusive wealth index measures the wealth of nations by carrying out a comprehensive analysis of a country’s productive base. That is, it measures all of the assets from which human well-being is derived, including manufactured, human and natural capital. In this, it measures a nation’s capacity to create and maintain human well-being over time.

Mankind is in crisis

In the effort to generate wealth and well-being for the Earth’s 7 billion human inhabitants, we have inadvertently created global crises. They involve every nation, and have the potential to affect every human life.

Social Crisis

On the whole, mankind is richer (perhaps use different language: “more well-off”, “more capable of surviving”, “more well-to-do”) than ever before, yet humans still aren’t capable of spreading this evenly across society.

Economic Crisis

Society has come to rely on money to create secure and comfortable lives for its people, but the currencies that we depend on are crumbling beneath our feet.

Environmental Crisis

In the mean time, humans are degrading the ecosystems and natural resources on which our lives truly depend. Without a change here, mankind will have little to no chance of survival.

Inclusive wealth can help

Society is in desperate need of a change. Chasing after the wrong ideals has led us to the crises we are currently experiencing. The inclusive wealth index can act as a reset button for our priorities. An inclusive approach to calculating wealth opens the spectrum of how we measure success, and reflects our common desire for health and well-being across generations.

1

In inclusive wealth sustainability is defined as positive change in human well-being.

2

A country’s inclusive wealth is the social value (not dollar price) of all its capital assets, including natural capital, human capital and produced capital.

3

If inclusive wealth is positive, then well-being across generations is positive.


Well-being across generations

The inclusive wealth index measures the wealth of nations by carrying out a comprehensive analysis of a country’s productive base. That is, it measures all of the assets from which human well-being is derived, including manufactured, human and natural capital. In this, it measures a nation’s capacity to create and maintain human well-being over time.
