‘The Balance Sheet for Gross GlobalProsperity: GGP-2.0’ project presents acritique of the present with an audit of development based on an integratedsystems perspective. This audit revealsrelationships within and between thesocial, energy and ecological systems. These three interdependent systemsenable economic prosperity. Absurdly,the indicators of health for theserespective systems are made invisibleby the reductive, myopic and obsessive
focus on prot in economic policy and
the ill-informed notion of GDP (GrossDomestic Product). GDP is widely usedas the primary indicator of a country’sstandard of living. In this project, theantiquated ‘GDP’ concept is revisedinto a more holistic model called: ‘GrossGlobal Prosperity’ (GGP-2.0) that includessocial, energy and ecological factors. Thiswork illustrates strategies for evaluatinggross global prosperity by visualising anew balance sheet of GGP-2.0. This project is based primarily on
scientic research in
Bankrupting Nature:Denying our Planetary Boundaries
 (2011), a report for The Club of Rome by Johan Rockstrom and Anders Wijkman. This book presents an overview of theecological harm caused by industrialsystems that are broaching at least threecritical planetary boundaries (biodiversityloss, climate change and the nitrogen
cycle). More scientic data on the state
of global biodiversity is taken from the
Millennium Ecosystem Assessment 
(2005). Information on socio-ecologicalissues was obtained from the Oxfamdiscussion paper by Kate Raworth titled;‘A Safe and Just Space for Humanity:Can we Live within the Doughnut?’(2012). Data on food systems is fromthe new report ‘Global Food Waste Not,Want Not’ (2013) by the UK Institutionof Mechanical Engineers. Energy data isfrom the International Energy Agency,the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) andthe World Bank. This research, based on work by
scientic organizations, an NGO, a
professional body of engineers andseveral international agencies, describescritical systems failures. Using justone example, consider that only 1% of global food supply could feed the 13%of the global population that are facinghunger.

Despite this fact, between 30-50% of food produced is simply wasted.
