Join this webinar hosted by Maryland Nonprofits and featuring Daphne Wysham, a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) and Director of IPS' Genuine Progress Project. As well as John Talberth, President and Senior Economist for Center for Sustainable Economy.
This simple tutorial, with time for questions and answers, will explain how the GPI (Genuine Progress Indicator), the first path-breaking alternative to Gross Domestic Product or GDP, has bearing on the work of all those who work for a more just and sustainable economy. This tutorial will precede a more in-depth discussion at the Maryland Nonprofits' legislative preview on January 6, 2014, where we will discuss how the GPI can be used in evaluating the benefits of raising the minimum wage for all Marylanders
