Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the return to a classical paradigm and perspective in contemporary economics implied by happiness-and-economics studies. Following critical attacks on the neoclassical paradigm through the 20th century, happiness-and-economics promises to bring into focus the fundamental criticisms that need to be addressed on the narrow scope and inadequacy of the dominant paradigm in mainstream economics.
