I'm an FT editor, David Pilling. I've just written a book about the pitfalls of how we measure our economy, and how to correct them - AMA
I'm an author and prize-winning journalist, and in my new book The Growth Delusion, I explore how we've ended up in a society in which heroin consumption and prostitution are worth more than volunteer work or public services. In a rational world we would learn how to value what makes economies better, not just what makes them bigger. We're prioritising growth without stopping to think about the costs.
