This week we are departing temporarily from our coverage of great economists for the first of our "Economics in Ten Specials" with a look at the growing field of Happiness Economics.
Are you a student and worried that you won’t be able to buy a house before you retire? Are you unhappy because you are not losing weight fast enough? Want to know what music to put on to make you happier? In this special episode of the Economics in Ten podcast, Pete and Gav, your friendly neighbourhood economists, take you on a journey through economics and show you how the ‘dismal science’ can improve your happiness, boost your well-being and definitely save you from boredom. With technical support from Nic and music from Jukedeck – create your own at jukedeck.com.
