Mr Stiglitz's main beef with the GDP metric was that it fails to take into account factors such as disparity in the distribution of wealth, depletion of natural resources, underground economies and the quality of goods and services. Consequently, as the credit crisis bubbled up from below, the GDP of America and other industrialised countries looked relatively benign.

One particular problem, said Mr Stiglitz, was that faux profits were factored into GDP calculations. He noted that 41% of all corporate profits in 2007 were generated in the financial sector and tied to debt. The massive subprime-related losses that financial institutions then booked in 2008 wiped out not only the 2007 “profits”, but also those from the preceding five years. “They were not really profits, but we recorded them as fantastic years.”
