My cousin Tho gave a talk in Berlin about the GNH paradigm: what it is, but also what it is not (eg an Happy Hippy Land). The key, take home message is: to overcome the suffering, to adopt a non dual attitude and to engage in a systematic approach in economics taking into account not only the individual but also his environment and the other living beings. Tho intervenes just after Julia Kim, the representative of UNICEF.
The footprint of America is strong worldwide; be it during wartime or peacetime. And childs are among the most impressionable receptors.

According to my Cousin now traveling in Buthan the health services there would be entirely free of charges, even for the foreign visitors. If it reveals to be the reality, congratulation to the official authorities of Buthan for this important vested social security advantage. Thus France would not be the only system in which health services are free of charge for the needy people.
