Happy voters (or why it’s not always the economy, stupid)

Research from the University of Warwick’s Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy (CAGE) explores the link between how happy you feel – your subjective well-being – and how you vote. The research by Federica Liberini, Eugenio Proto and Michela Redoano, challenges the notion, made famous by Democratic party strategist James Carville, that when it comes to voting intention, ‘it’s the economy, stupid’.

At this event Eugenio Proto, Associate Professor of Economics at CAGE, presented the findings, including how UK life satisfaction in different regions of the UK has changed since 2011.
