Prof Lord Robert Skidelsky - How Much is Enough?

Prof Lord Robert Skidelsky's lecture, entitled 'How Much is Enough? The Economics of the Good Life', contributes to the growing debate on the value of wealth prompted by the economic downturn. Lord Skidelsky argues that wealth is not an end in itself but a means to the achievement and maintenance of a 'good life' and that our economy should be organised to reflect this fact. This collection also includes a lecture by Dr Edward Skidelsky on the relationship between happiness and economic growth, and a discussion between Prod Lord Skidelsky and Prof Nick Crafts.
