Wellbeing Economics
The Capabilities Approach to Prosperity

The Agribusiness and Economics Research Unit at Lincoln University announces the publication of a new book in August 2018, addressing one of the most pressing issues of our modern age.

For decades, economists have thought their best contribution to wellbeing comes from fostering economic growth. That belief is challenged by persistent problems such as poverty, inequality and the threats to wellbeing from global climate change.

This book offers a new approach to promoting prosperity. It explains how individuals, families, communities and businesses can act to sustain and expand wellbeing. It explains how local and central governments can design economic policies to support wellbeing, and addresses how international collaboration can tackle climate change and other pressing global challenges.
