Bhutan isn’t just carbon neutral

Tshering Tobgay, the prime minister of Bhutan shares about his country, “The last shangri la”. While many countries focuses on increasing GDP (Gross Domestic Product), money and money, Bhutan focuses on GNH (Gross National Happiness), on sustainable development. If you can see how HAPPY people in western countries, America or Asian developed countries like Singapore, Japan is, compare to how gently happy and satisfied Bhutan or less developing country is, you can see it does make sense to think GNH is much more important to GDP.
