Robert Kennedy e il discorso sul PIL

On March 18, 1968, Robert Kennedy delivered an address at the University of Kansas where he pointed out, among other things, the shortcomings of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as a measure of a nation’s well-being, specifically for economically developed countries. Three months later, he was tragically assassinated during his presidential campaign, which might have led to his election as President. In the captivating black and white footage, a man stands at a podium with a resolve that seems to reach beyond the frame, his expression intense and focused.
