      Hi Mason! The econlife post related to the connection between what we measure and what we value. If government chooses statistics that measure what we care about, it is more likely that their policies will focus on what the people want. In his State of the Union address, President Biden even mentioned some of the little well-being metrics like fee hassles at airports. If government is aware of them–even the little things that elevate our well-being–, maybe they will do something to make them better.
