Economics of Happiness
Bourdieu states the following: “There’s nothing which lies outside of this enlarged economy: sadness, joy, happiness, taking pleasure in life, the pleasure of walking the streets without being attacked, the quality of the air we breathe. All of that pertains to the economics.”
In an essay, assess how we can relate the concept of happiness to economic production, consumption, advertisement, and inequalities. In other terms, what is the paradox of economics and economic growth? How does it threat social well being?
