Chapter 3 Economics and happiness
Restricted access

In this chapter, we look at some broad sources of the economics of happiness. Starting with a classification of the subject based on psychological, individual, social, and institutional views of happiness, we then move to how the historical schools of thought explicitly or implicitly deal with the matter. Marxian and Sraffian views of happiness are given adequate treatment, as well as Classical, Keynes and Post-Keynesian views are considered.
