The Pursuit of Happiness: An Economy of Well-Being

Capa
Brookings Institution Press, 25 de jul. de 2012 - 164 páginas

While the book spotlights the innovative contributions of happiness research to the dismal science, it also raises a cautionary note about the issues that still need to be addressed before policymakers can make best use of them.
