‘Understanding Happiness’ launch event

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

The event will discuss 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.

Andrew Oswald and Daniel Sgroi will introduce their research, and Sir Dave Ramsden will discuss the perspective of the Government Economic Service on wellbeing, before taking questions from Chair Diane Coyle and the audience.

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.
