What can we learn from scrutinising psychological as opposed to economic well-being?
About this Event
With a particular focus on unemployment and income, this talk will focus on what additional insights we can learn from scrutinising psychological as opposed to economic well-being when it comes to assessing the long term impacts associated with Covid-19. The speaker will also ask what would be the implications for our policy response to dealing with the aftermath of Covid-19 if happiness research came to the fore.
There will also be the opportunity to take part in the discussion, sharing your views on the issues currently affecting business leaders today.
