Economic policy should be designed to maximise wellbeing in a way that is sustainable and socially just


Economic policy should be designed to maximise wellbeing in a way that is sustainable and socially just.

This working paper is about some of the policy implications of targeting well-being. The first part introduces the concept, explaining why and what we are targeting; the second part presents some of the key empirical findings; and the third part draws together the implications for policy. This is work in progress: research is ongoing.
