The Politics and Economics of happiness
January 2010

New Vision's project, to be developed during year 2010, deals with the issue of measuring well being in modern societies.  The conference on May 13, at Villa Wolkonsky, was an excellent forum for debate on the subject, among scholars and organizations who have tried to answer several questions: what should societies – and policy makers – look for? Can happiness be an effective alternative to GDP when it comes to measuring quantity of well being and the fairness of its distribution? But also: who can define what happiness is? Is “progress” still a valid notion towards which science and economy should be oriented?
Vision will develop this project together with Dems, a British think tank.
