Consumption and well-being.

Le 19 octobre à 12h00

Lunch debate cycle with Francesco Sarracino

Consumption has a leading role in people's lives. Its decrease is as important for sustainability as it is unpopular. In this seminar, we will discuss the role of money for well-being, and some of the drivers of consumption. We will also discuss why unhappiness, poor health, loneliness, stress, long working hours have become the characteristic features of modern, affluent societies.

Various examples and evidence from empirical studies will illustrate defensive growth mechanism in developed and developing countries. Understanding the causes of modern consumption and its relation with our well-being is the first step towards socially and enviromentally sustainable societies.

The lunch debate will take place on October 19, 2022 @12h

Address: House of Startups, 9, rue du Laboratoire, L-1911 Luxembourg
