Abstract
I argue that "quality of life" can be understood in three main ways: as purchasing power, together with social and political goods; as the subjective state of mind: happiness; happiness as related to the meaningfulness of one's profession or cause
Keywords Quality of life  Happiness   happiness studies  Meaning of life  happiness index  subjective state of happiness
