My second book An Economy of Well-being: Common Sense Tools for Building Genuine Wealth and Happiness was released May 10th in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Over 80 people attended the book launch on May 10th.
In my second book An Economy of Well-being responds to a common yearning for common-sense tools to orient our lives, our businesses, and our communities towards well-being. This is ideal reading for anyone who wishes to contribute to building happier, more mindful communities, and ultimately lives of joy and meaning.
This book, released just over 10 years since my award-winning The Economics of Happiness (2007) book, explores practical guide for building a new economy of well-being to help communities and nations become more flourishing and happier places to live. In this follow-up to his best-selling The Economics of Happiness, Anielski addresses key questions including:
- How can our personal and family assets be strengthened for a more fulfilling life of meaning and purpose?
- How can neighborhoods and cities become flourishing economies of well-being by making the best of abundant community assets?
- how can an organizations, communities and financial institutions measure, manage and finance assets to achieve high levels of well-being?
In the face of political, financial, and environmental upheaval, it’s difficult to slow down and build lives of mindfulness and joy. These things are within reach, but how can we go about creating a new world, using common-sense economics?
