What should we measure?

France takes the summer off.  many factories close down for a month while workers holiday en masse.

Other European countries also take longer holidays than the UK.

Yet the productivity of these countries is higher.

Can anyone explain this – it is intuitive.

I have voiced my doubts about the way we measure national productivity before.

Each time I note something like this, i become more convinced that we need to take a fresh look at what we measure and compare.
