Secrets of a nation’s happiness revealed at Warwick Arts Centre

A happiness economist will be trying to uncover the secrets behind a nation’s wellbeing at a public talk next month.

Economist Professor Andrew Oswald will present ‘Happiness Around the World: An introduction to the Scientific Evidence’ on Tuesday 4 November, 12.45pm until 2pm at Warwick Arts Centre.

What determines the happiness of nations, and why do certain countries, like Denmark and the Netherlands, regularly appear at the top of the international happiness rankings? Professor Oswald will describe what is known about the forces that mould the well-being of whole nations.

His talk will be non-technical and will cover the influence of factors such as the welfare state, air quality, and the role of genes. There will be time for questions and open discussion from the floor.
