# n-trade: the gross national product does not allow for

<< Yet the gross national product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play.  It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages, the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officialsIt measures neither our wit nor our courage, neither our wisdom nor our learning, neither our compassion nor our devotion to our country, it measures everything in short, except that which makes life worthwhileAnd it can tell us everything about America except why we are proud that we are Americans. >>

Robert F. Kennedy. Kansas University,  March 18, 1968
