Understanding Happiness?' launch event - Warwick

The Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy (CAGE) launched ‘Understanding Happiness’, a new report on wellbeing and the economy.

The panel discussed the findings of the report, which features new research on ways of measuring wellbeing, how wellbeing varies across countries and the reasons for those variations, and the ways in which the relationship between wealth and wellbeing has changed over time.

The Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy (CAGE) is a research centre in the Department of Economics at the University of Warwick, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to carry out a ten year programme of research into how countries succeed in achieving the key objectives central to the economic wellbeing of their citizens.

“Understanding Happiness”, a CAGE policy report which is intended to enhance understanding of how the well-being of individuals and societies is affected by myriad forces. The report considers ways to rethink traditional aims and definitions of socioeconomic progress.
