Propelling new images of wealth
Synonyms: Defining indicators of non-material wealth
Demonstrating social wealth
Implementation: The World Bank has expanded its definition of wealth to include produced assets, natural capital, and human and social capital, with the latter generally being the major component of national wealth (World Bank 1997b).
Claim: You can be money-rich and miserable, money-rich and ill or money-rich and lonely. Simply counting money is not necessarily the best way of judging whether a place is successful. New York City may be rich, if you count the wealth of everyone who live there, but it is also dirty, dangerous, polluted, full of poverty. A picture of real wealth is one closely linked to health and freedom from fear of crime and violence.
