    Economics and Happiness: Framing the Analysis.Luigino Bruni & Pier Luigi Porta (eds.) - 2005 - Oxford University Press UK.
    This book is the first of its kind to provide a comprehensive overview of happiness in Economics. Although it is comparatively unusual to put happiness and economics together, the association appears increasingly exciting and fruitful.
