Cursusdoelen
At the end of this course, students are expected to:
  • describe and explain the historical perspective of economists on well-being and welfare;
  • explain, defend, and critique the subjective well-being literature, specifically taking into account the effects of income and employment on individuals’ perceived well-being;
  • compare and contrast proposed measurement tools for well-being, including the methodological views that underlie these instruments;
  • write a policy paper defending a particular approach to conceptualizing and measuring well-being.
Inhoud
This course is part of the minor ‘Well-Being and Society.’

The fact that money does not buy happiness is obvious, but what does? This course offers an interdisciplinary perspective on the nature and determinants of well-being. These insights help us to explore alternatives for Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as a dominant measure for policymakers to improve individuals' well-being. The Inclusive Wealth, Human Development, and Gross National Happiness index, and many other indicators have been suggested as substitutes for GDP, but policymakers remain reluctant to use these measures for a variety of reasons. With the help of the teachers, you will examine these alternative measures and identify benefits and problems of using these indicators for policymaking. As part of this course, you will prepare a policy paper exploring a particular indicator of well-being and defending its usefulness for policymakers.
