Introducing The Economics Of Happiness

In the last decades, a new field of economics has been built upon the principle that everyone tries to be as happy as they can be, aiming to quantify and study happiness, as well as trying to understand what can be done to maximise it from the personal and policy point of view.

In this talk, Karl Overdick, PhD student in Management at the University of Oxford, will provide an introductory and balanced view of what the field of subjective wellbeing has found in the last few decades since its inception.

This is the third of the Green Templeton Outreach Talks, funded by a Green Templeton College Academic Initiatives Grant.
