Sioux Falls Feminists endorse Happiness for some facts about
happiness from science. For instance, once you have enough
money to comfortably meet your living needs, with a little
extra, more money does not increase your happiness.

Lessons from a New Science

From a leading figure in the new field of happiness studies comes a groundbreaking work addressing what happiness is and how we can have more of it.

We all have views on what brings happiness, but startling new research shows we are often wrong. We may think, for example, that more money means more happiness. In fact, it's not so simple. We now have sophisticated ways of measuring how happy people are, and all the evidence shows that, on average, people are no happier today than they were fifty years ago, even though average incomes have more than doubled.

If we really want to be happier, what should we do differently? First we'd have to understand what conditions generate actual happiness, and then we would bend all our efforts to establish them. That is what this book is about - the causes of happiness and the means we have to affect it.

Until recently there was too little evidence to give good answers on this essential issue, but now, thanks to the integrated insights of psychology, neuroscience, sociology and applied economics, the distinguished economist Richard Layard shows us that we can reach some firm conclusions about the cause of happiness - conclusions that will surprise you. Happiness is an illuminating road map, grounded in hard research, pointing the way to a better, happier life for us all.

Richard Layard is one of Britain's best-known economists and a world expert on unemployment and inequality. He founded Europe's leading economics research center, within the London School of Economics. He worked for the British government as an economic adviser from 1997 to 2001, and in 2000 he became a member of the House of Lords. He is the author of a number of academic books.
