A wide range of factors contribute to quality of life, with many being completely intangible or otherwise difficult to measure. Professionals and experts alike measure and discuss the living standards of a population, a composite of quality-of-life related material factors which are relatively easy to quantify, such as income, life expectancy, unemployment rates, or (in)equality. Since a higher standard of living is associated with a higher overall quality of life, policy decisions should be made with the goal of maximizing living standards. So how can we achieve this goal?
Join Dr. Andrew Sharpe, Founder and Executive Director of the Centre for the Study of Living Standards, as he details the OECD’s inclusive growth framework, and how this model could help leaders make better decisions—now and in the future. The inclusive growth framework offers a novel and economically credible approach to the assessment of some of the most important policies for Canadians, particularly health policy. By fully encompassing the costs and benefits of policy into a single measure (dollars) in a rigorous way, policy-making can become more transparent, quantitative evaluations more meaningful, and policy actions more effective. The inclusive growth framework outlined in this webinar offers policy analysts and decision-makers in government, business, and other organizations a new tool for effective health policy evaluation.
