Thanks for the explanation.

I am not sure what you mean by "narrow utilitarianism" as opposed to "utilitarianism" tout court.  But isn't the policy approach that you and I agree on (as opposed to the "marketing" approach I am suggesting to replace "GDP" with some other unitary notion like HDI or median PPP income) just another form of utilitarianism as well, to wit, "negative utilitarianism"?

Truth unfolds in time through a communal process.
