The Economics of Happiness: Building Genuine Wealth
New Society Publishers | 2007-09-01 | ISBN: 0865715963 | 288 pages | PDF | 1,9 MB
We all know that money can't buy you love or happiness, but we have been living our lives as though the accumulation of wealth is the key to our dreams. Why, in spite of increasing economic prosperity over the past fifty years, are many conditions of well-being in decline and rates of happiness largely unchanged since the 1950s?
Why do our measures of economic progress not reflect the values that make us happy: supportive relationships, meaningful work, a healthy environment, and our spiritual well-being?
