Sen on Quality of Life

Since Bernard Girard's post (linked in my previous post) takes us back to the days of the Sen-Stiglitz-Fitoussi Commission report, some of you may be interested in Amartya Sen's reflections on this and other issues related to the quality of life and its measurement. These can be seen here in an interview with Ingrid Robeyns (h/t Crooked Timber; N.B.: the video didn't work for me in Firefox and was distorted in aspect ratio in Internet Explorer but [barely] tolerable to watch in full-screen mode).

A Year Is a Long Time in Politics

Bernard Girard looks back.
