Happiness, Growth and the Life Cycle - Signed Copy

£75.00

Product description

Published in 2010 by Oxford University Press.

IZA Prize in Labor Economics winner concerning the economics of happiness and individual well being.

This volume presents Richard Easterlin's outstanding research on the analysis of subjective well-being, and on the relationship between demographic developments and economic outcomes. In both fields, his work has laid the foundations for enlarging the scope of traditional economic analysis and has increased our understanding of behaviour in several important domains, such as fertility choices, labour market behaviour, and the determinants of individual well-being. In various seminal contributions, Easterlin has demonstrated the importance of material aspirations and relative economic status for human behaviour. This book is a collection of 11 of his key papers, revised and edited to make a cohesive book. New material includes an Introduction from the editors, two section Introductions from Easterlin, and an Epilogue from Easterlin.

In very good condition throughout with tight binding and clean pages. No dust jacket.

The book appears to have been signed with a personal message from Richard (Dick) Easterlin (see photo)
