Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The HDI is definitely a lot better than GDP as a measure, though it's not complete. If you're into this, I recommend reading up on the human capabilities approach, which also influenced the HDI.

Measures which focus on happiness instead of GDP or wealth can easily fall into the trap of narrow utilitarianism, the capabilities approach is more complete in that sense.
