The Economics of Happiness
The Economics of Happiness acknowledges that economic activity is not a goal in itself. Rather, its value derives from contributing to people’s happiness. Individual welfare is approximated through surveys on subjective well-being. Based on this approach, it can be analyzed to what extent economic conditions and institutional factors determine individual welfare.
Currently, we are particularly interested in:
Regulation of the Consumption of Addictive Goods and Individual Well-Being
Political Participation, Procedural Utility and Subjective Well-Being
Intuitive Theories of Happiness: Do people know what makes them happy?
Organization of the State and the Firm, Intrinsic Motivation and Subjective Well-Being
- Juridification, Bureaucratization and Subjective Well-Being
- Digitization and Subjective Well-Being
