Somewhat, yes. But the argument the author makes is that GNP is not a good indicator of well being. See the language in the second paragraph that starts with "But, in actuality..." (second sentence)? That's the clue that the author is about to argue that those economists are wrong, and that there is a problem with their approach.
So, if the last paragraph was just a summary of that argument, it would simply restate the position that GNP is the wrong way to go because of the things it fails to include.
Instead, prephrase this. In your own words, what is the last paragraph doing? Mine was "showing us the effects of some nations accepting this argument." It's about the practical, real-world consequences of a change in viewpoint, and not just an academic discussion. For that reason, answer E stands head and shoulders above the rest.
