Distinguished Professor Arthur A. Stone, PhD was a featured guest on an hour-long interview broadcast by Radio Times with Marty Moss Coane on February 27. Dr. Stone and a colleague, Angus Deaton, PhD, Professor of Economics and International Affairs at Princeton University, spoke about the growing interest among public officials in measuring subjective well-being.
An audio file of the program, titled “A healthy economy based on a happy country”, is available on-line from public media provider WHYY. Among the topics covered in the interview were the distinction between emotional happiness and evaluative life satisfaction, measures of subjective well-being throughout the life span, and variations in reports of experienced happiness by day of week.
