Not Gross National Stuff

As I go through my home and dejunk, I can't help but think of my first college experience as a business major. I learned about GNP (Gross National Product) and how countries measure their success by how high it is. To me this means that the more junk will make, sell, and buy, then we feel like we are progressing.

Recently a country (remember I'm old and so I forgot which country) decided that instead of measuring their success by their GNP, they would start tracking and trying to increase GNH (Gross National Happiness). That's a novel idea. I'm convinced the more I get rid of the happier I am.
