Session on: Socio-economic development, well-being and happiness – problems, measures, findings
Convenor: Krzysztof Zagórski
While economists more and more widely accept subjective and objective well-being as an important social goals of economic development, especially in a framework of the relatively new branch of economics, namely “happiness economics”, national income (GDP or GNP) still remains the most commonly used indicator of development. On the other hand, sociologists still relatively seldom include purely economic processes, economic growth included, as the topics that should be incorporated in sociological investigations. Several widely known social oriented indexes of human development or progress underestimate or totally neglect economic growth and other economic processes as their components. This session will discuss interrelations between economic and social as well as objective and subjective aspects of development, with special emphasize on human well-being and happiness. Three types of papers are invited: theoretical, methodological and presenting research findings on national or comparative international level.
