Andrew Oswald and Gus O’Donnell, who are internationally known experts in this field, will describe how the Office of National Statistics now measures the genuine happiness and well-being of the United Kingdom, what the latest numbers show, and why we should use this kind of information to replace old-fashioned ideas that traditionally focussed simply on GDP and economic growth. There will be a large amount of time left for questions and debate from the audience.
Professor Andrew Oswald, Professor of Economics, University of Warwick
Lord Gus O’Donnell, former Cabinet Secretary and Warwick graduate
