Into the 21st century, the meaning of prosperity has gone beyond material wealth. Many of the economists asks themselves what prosperity really means, as it is a problem studied from many years and it does not have an unique and general accepted definition. As Indira Gandhi said: „Freedom is indivisible …peace is indivisible …economic prosperity is indivisible”, we can say that the issue is still of interest and in the same time it is controversial. Starting from such aspects, this paper aims to emphasize some different approaches of the concept of prosperity.
