Are measures like GDP an accurate way to measure the success and growth of a country? David Pilling, Africa Editor at The Financial Times and author of, "The Growth Delusion," says GDP is outdated and has not been updated since the technological revolution.
Pilling joins Cheddar to explain that GDP was initially invented during the manufacturing age and no longer accurately measures production and progress in the technological age. Pilling does not advocate for a full removal of GDP, but he does believe that leaders rely too heavily on it.
Pilling argues that we need to find a better way to measure tech contributions.
