Researching Bhutan


Please dont raise your bids because this is an easy assignment and the only reason I am not doing it is due to a huge amount of work I must do tonight. Inquiry Activity Researching Bhutan In this chapter, we studied how countries gauge their success through measurements such as GDP, the Index of Economic Freedom. and economic classifications. One country measures it another way. Bhutan measures its success as a country by happiness. Bhutan is a country of almost 800,000 people that sits high in the Himalayan Mountains between China and India. Traditionally, the country has a king as the ruler. In 2006, KingJigme Singye Wangchuck stepped down to pave the way for the country to have its first democratic election.

The idea of gross national happiness (GNH) came from the king. The country’s new constitution ensures that government programs such as agriculture, transportation, and even foreign trade be judged not by economic criteria, but by the happiness these programs generate.
