    The workshop is well-timed. I found the ideas in “The Handbook on the Economics of Happiness” by Luigino Bruni and Pier Luigi Porta very useful from a philosophical and historical point of view, pertinent to the theme of the workshop. I look forward to seeing some of the papers that are going to be presented at this workshop.

    Just a brief note to thank Peter Grant, Sabine Spangenberg, Robert Read, Bruce Sheppy, Tamara Trafton, Mike Keating, Nick Wilkinson and Ali Shamsavari for their presentations at the June 6th Workshop. Much food for thought on a whole host of issues! Summaries/abstracts of these will appear soon.
