In this episode, Sarah Bowen and Merle Van Den Akker talk to Rory Sutherland.

Ep. 21: Happiness (ft. Paul Dolan)

In this episode, QB co-hosts Sarah Bowen and Merle Van Den Akker invite Professor Paul Dolan (London School of Economics) on the pod to discuss the behavioural science of happiness and wellbeing. We discuss the implications of a prescriptive approach to happiness maximisation in a policy context, how to define and measure happiness, and the ways in which the subjectivity and heterogeneity of human experience pose challenges and opportunities for the future of behavioural science.
