Chapter 1 Introduction and general overview of economic happiness
Restricted access

In this first chapter, we painted the background on which we will draw our economic concepts of happiness. We found the domain of the concept to be an open set of ideas. The concept of utility is prominent in that domain and is of paramount importance in the development of economics. It concerns the happiness of individuals and society, which have measurement challenges. One may take a subjective or objective approach to economic happiness based on their inclination. That is the bird’s eye view of the project at hand, which will be elucidated in different chapters specializing on the substantial ideas found in the literature.
