Towards a Positive Psychological Approach to Policy

Nick Silver has been carrying the lessons learnt through positive psychology through to economic theory. In his blog Positive Psychology and the End of Economics, he discusses how public policy might be needed to correct people’s ‘miswanting’, the taught belief that more – money, object, status, will bring happiness.

In this video introduction, Nick explains the thinking behind the blog and asks how do we move from our current situation to the desired end of positive psychology – greater happiness for all backed by a more equal economy.
