            Positive Emotions?
Barbara Friedrickson’s
             theory of the evolutionary
              role of positive emotions
1. Positive emotions BROADEN our thoughts
   & actions: paying more attention, being more creative
    & playful, open to relationships, and flexible.
2. Positive emotions BUILD psychological
   resources: resilience, coping, physical abilities,
    emotional intelligence, social skills and self mastery.
In other words:
Happiness matters!

Happiness is more about
opportunities than threats …

Happiness can help us build
better futures
Happiness is good …

Happiness & well-being
as the goal of public policy?


                          “We have to
                          recognise officially,
                          that economic
                          growth is a means
                          to an end”

UK Prime Minister David Cameron November 2010
Nic Marks: Ideas for a happier world
New research released today, on the most miserable day of the year*, shows the government’s strategy
of measuring and explicitly promoting happiness over other objectives is counter-productive and a
waste of money.
The report, “…and the Pursuit of Happiness: Wellbeing and the Role of Government”, examines the
flaws in attempts to measure happiness. It suggests that:
•The government should not be trying to measure or maximise happiness as an explicit policy goal.
•There is no evidence that more equal societies lead to increases in happiness.
•Contrary to widespread belief, the evidence suggests that happiness is in fact related to income and
economic growth. The so-called Easterlin paradox (the idea that wellbeing does not increase with
income) is shown to be fake.
•Attempts to promote “wellbeing at work” through regulation are likely to be counter-productive in so
far as increases in employment regulation increase unemployment. There is a strong link between
unemployment and loss of wellbeing. In general, more intrusive and bigger government leads to a loss
in wellbeing. One study finds that increasing government spending by one third would cause a
reduction in happiness of 5%-6%.
•Smaller government tends to make people happier. Public spending cuts could actually be the key to
making Britain a happier place.
What about Governments?


Broadly there are three areas they impact :
  • The Economy
  • Public Services
  • Local Areas
… and here are seven strategies they
could think about …
Create good work ...
  Reform the banking system ...
    Develop flourishing schools ...
      Promote complete health ...
         Engage with citizens ...
           Build good foundations …
and … Measure what matters ...

  • 74. New research released today, on the most miserable day of the year*, shows the government’s strategy of measuring and explicitly promoting happiness over other objectives is counter-productive and a waste of money. The report, “…and the Pursuit of Happiness: Wellbeing and the Role of Government”, examines the flaws in attempts to measure happiness. It suggests that: •The government should not be trying to measure or maximise happiness as an explicit policy goal. •There is no evidence that more equal societies lead to increases in happiness. •Contrary to widespread belief, the evidence suggests that happiness is in fact related to income and economic growth. The so-called Easterlin paradox (the idea that wellbeing does not increase with income) is shown to be fake. •Attempts to promote “wellbeing at work” through regulation are likely to be counter-productive in so far as increases in employment regulation increase unemployment. There is a strong link between unemployment and loss of wellbeing. In general, more intrusive and bigger government leads to a loss in wellbeing. One study finds that increasing government spending by one third would cause a reduction in happiness of 5%-6%. •Smaller government tends to make people happier. Public spending cuts could actually be the key to making Britain a happier place.
