Join Professor Matthew Adler for a celebration and discussion of his new Oxford Handbook co-edited with Marc Fleurbaey of Princeton University. The Handbook represents a definitive guide to research on individual well-being and on the existing and emerging tools for evaluating public policy in light of well-being. Contributions from internationally renowned economists and philosophers explore different methodologies for policymaking, from standard approaches such as cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and gross domestic product (GDP), to newer tools from emerging fields of research such as happiness studies. Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by the Goodson Law Library and Office of the Dean. For more information contact Melanie Dunshee at dunshee@law.duke.edu
