I first became interested in "bad metrics" in a rigorously quantitative way by reading Daly and Cobb, who suggested a fairly elaborate, thought-out alternative to GDP for measuring national well-being.  I think several proposals along these lines have been floated, including  a brief attempt by the King of Nepal to establish a National Happiness Index...

More food for thought from Gar Alperovitz... on the idea that "wealth should benefit the community directly."
