Welcome to the website for Professor Andrew Oswald. Welcome to the website for Professor Andrew Oswald. Easterlin paradox. The Easterlin Paradox is a key concept in happiness economics.

Easterlin paradox

It is named for the economist and USC professor Richard Easterlin, who discussed the factors contributing to happiness in a 1974 book chapter.[1] According to the University of Kent, the paradox explains that, "high incomes do correlate with happiness, but long term, increased income doesn't correlate with increased happiness". Easterlin found that within a given country people with higher incomes were more likely to report being happy. However, in international comparisons, the average reported level of happiness did not vary much with national income per person, at least for countries with income sufficient to meet basic needs.

Similarly, although income per person rose steadily in the United States between 1946 and 1970, average reported happiness showed no long-term trend and declined between 1960 and 1970. The difference in international and micro-level results fostered an ongoing body of research.[2] Controversy[edit] Brookings Papers on Economic Activity, Vol. 2008 (Spring, 2008), pp. 1-87.

Their average life evaluation score is 7.6 on a 0-to-10 scale. The least happy countries are all poor countries in Sub-Saharan Africa (Togo, Benin, Central African Republic, Sierra Leone) with average life evaluation scores of 3.4. But it is not just wealth that makes people happy: Political freedom, strong social networks and an absence of corruption are together more important than income in explaining well-being differences between the top and bottom countries. At the individual level, good mental and physical health, someone to count on, job security and stable families are crucial. These are among the findings of the first ever World Happiness Report (download PDF), commissioned for the April 2nd United Nations Conference on Happiness (mandated by the UN General Assembly).
