Matthew Adler | Handbook of Well-Being and Public Policy

February 13, 2018

Professor Matthew Adler discusses his new Oxford Handbook co-edited with Marc Fleurbaey of Princeton University. The Handbook represents a definitive guide to research on individual well-being and on the existing and emerging tools for evaluating public policy in light of well-being. Contributions from internationally renowned economists and philosophers explore different methodologies for policymaking, from standard approaches such as cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and gross domestic product (GDP), to newer tools from emerging fields of research such as happiness studies.
