520    This book presents a panoramic view of the implications 
       from Richard Easterlin's groundbreaking work on happiness 
       and economics. Contributions in the book show the 
       relevance of the Easterlin Paradox to main areas, such as 
       the relationship between income and happiness, the 
       relationship between economic growth and well-being, 
       conceptions of progress and development, design and 
       evaluation of policies for well-being, and the use of 
       happiness research to address welfare economics issues.  
       This book is unique in the sense that it gathers 
       contributions from senior and top researchers in the 
       economics of happiness, whom have played a central role in
       the consolidation of happiness economics, as well as 
       promising young scholars, showing the current dynamism and
       consolidation of happiness economics.
