Another growth strategy; politics as usual
The Financial Times 18/03/11

The UK government is "going for growth", ignoring sage advice that 
growth, like happiness, is best achieved by concentrating on more 
specific goals (advice given by no less a sage than John Stuart Mill).
But then David Cameron, the prime minister,
has also asked the Office of National Statistics to investigate the 
possibility of a "gross national happiness" index
- following the lead of the Himalayan state of Bhutan.
All of which puts me in mind of Karl Marx's saying that
history repeats itself, first as tragedy and then as farce
