Lavoro e clima: ingredienti chiave per la ricetta della felicità / Work and climate: key ingredients for the recipe for happiness

An excellent example, proposed by Canova himself, summarizing the complexity of a concept like happiness is the World Happiness Report, a United Nations project to empirically define the concept of happiness.

It makes use of the contribution and supervision of great economists such as John Helliwell, macroeconomist of the Vancouver School of Economics; Richard Layard, of the London School of Economics, among the first to deal with happiness; Jeffrey Sachs, one of the most respected sustainability experts.

Why life in the UK feels better than ever

Since the referendum, self-reported British subjective wellbeing has stagnated, finds a study led by Georgios Kavetsos of Queen Mary University of London. Pro-Europeans are predictably upset, but even anti-Europeans saw an early rise in wellbeing melt away, perhaps because Brexit hasn't been delivered. Even so, British contentment remains about the highest ever measured. As usual, nostalgia is misplaced.

How is Brexit affecting FDI into Britain?

Brexit affects domestic firms, too. In January Barclays bank received legal approval to move €190bn ($213bn) of assets to Dublin, fearing no-deal. The London School of Economics recently found the Brexit vote had caused a 12% rise in investment by British firms in the rest of the eu. That capital might otherwise have been used at home. fdi remains strong, but it would be stronger minus Brexit. And Britain has not even left yet.
