A move toward a more holistic measure of "success" could be helpful in causing governments around the world to value the well-being of their citizens. However, I think a lot of what GDP lacks in usefulness it makes up for by being relatively easy to understand. Until another measure (maybe Bhutan's GNH!) is adopted that can capture more meaning than GDP but maintain its simplicity, we may be stuck with GDP in the US and around the world.
