Hi Joi, here are a few links as grist to your mill. I’ve been interested in how we view and review economic activity for some decades now, not just as companies but as societies, as entire economies. This is even more important when the economies are open and interconnected.
The Bean review gets referred to in that article, and is itself worth reading, as is the Diane Coyle book. You may find the other references of value.
When next we meet, I’d love to discuss all this further. I think you’re right, we’re at a crossroads on all this, and there are social as well as technological reasons to find a better way. Hope all is well. JP
