Part of the Creative Economy book series (CRE)


With the increased understanding that wealth accumulation over recent decades in advanced countries has not necessarily made people happier, economists have asked to what extent this phenomenon is universal and examined the causes and sources of happiness, while psychologists have investigated mechanisms of subjective feelings. Researchers from other academic disciplines have also explored the relationship between happiness and employment conditions, family and health.
