Dashboard for the New Economy

Steering the economy onto a greener and fairer track will require a set of globally agreed metrics beyond GDP growth. Efforts to identify relevant metrics have proliferated in recent years. Given the multidimensionality of the current crisis, an accelerated convergence on a dashboard of core metrics to steer consistent, forward-looking economic and social policy and business decisions will be critical. This Dahsboard initative will bring together key international organizations, leading expert voices and G20 governments to propose a core set of elements that governments can use to shift to a new common framework for tracking economic progress. It will thereby accelerate a systemic solution to the measurement challenge. The effort will build directly on the extensive and rigorous work that has already been done and work to converge and amplify it.
