Well-to-do or doing well? Empirical studies of wellbeing and development

SL Blauw

Research output: Types of ThesisDoctoral ThesisInternal


How do we measure wellbeing and how is it determined? To investigate this question, the author takes the reader from Uganda to Bolivia, from a computer laboratory to a college sorority. In the different chapters, she explores how telephone use affects economic wellbeing, how our happiness and behaviour are influenced by others, and how income inequalities in our societies can impact how much we trust the people around us.
