When we think of prosperity, we think about the future as well as the present. Is today’s standard of living, way of life, sustainable? Most households and business leaders answer this by thinking about their assets such as pensions, savings, or their skills and experience. Most people think about prosperity in terms of their ability to access a broad range of goods and services including, not just material consumption but also access to finance, opportunities, healthcare and justice and perhaps the degree to which they are insured against risks of social upheaval, conflict and insecurity. The Wealth Economy project aims to understand and measure the wide range of assets required for sustainable prosperity.
