Happiness Workshop

On very short notice, I’m running a half-day workshop at ANU on ‘The Economics of Happiness’ next Wednesday, 11 November. The program features three stars of the international happiness literature – Paul Frijters, Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers. The flyer is available here, and the program is as follows:

8.15-8.45am Coffee

8.45-9.00am Andrew Leigh, Australian National University
Chair’s Welcome

9.00-10.00am Betsey Stevenson, University of Pennsylvania
Economic Growth and Subjective Well-Being: Reassessing the Easterlin Paradox

10.00-10.30am Morning Tea

10.30-11.30am Paul Frijters, Queensland University of Technology
Happiness Dynamics with Quarterly Life Event Data

11.30-12.30pm Justin Wolfers, University of Pennsylvania
The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness

12.30-1.00pm Roundtable on “Happiness Research – Where to Next?”

I think it’ll be a fun event, and it may raise your level of life satisfaction to know that attendance is free. So that I can keep track of numbers, please email me if you’re planning to attend: andrew.leigh |AT| anu.edu.au.
