`GDP-driven growth is not sustainable'
last two decades, the world's gross domestic product (GDP) has increased by 50 per cent, whereas inclusive wealth has increased by a mere 6 per cent. This is the conclusion of the second biennial Inclusive Wealth Report. According to the report, in recent decades GDP-driven economic performance has only harmed inclusive wealth like human capital and natural capital like forests, land and water. While the world's human capital, which stands at 57 per cent of total inclusive wealth, grew by only 8 per cent, the natural capital, which is 23 per cent of total inclusive wealth, declined by 30 per cent worldwide in the last two decades. The data was collected from 140 countries for the period from 1992 to 2010.
