The economics of happiness: building Genuine Wealth.

The Economics of Happiness: Building Genuine Wealth, Mark Anielski. Anielski is a rare talent; he not only theorizes, but is also a practical innovator. In this book, he challenges and reframes several core concepts and principles of economics. Drawing on his experiences as economic advisor to the Alberta government and his work on the Genuine Progress Indicator, he describes Genuine Wealth - his new economic model. This approach focuses on real determinants of well-being and has been implemented in several community contexts around the world. Anielski is a unique and significant voice on the Canadian ecological economics scene, and his book is essential reading.
