In response to my recent spiked essay on the paradox of prosperity I have been sent two interesting-looking references. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Utility (Imprint Academic 2006) is by the father and son team of Anthony Kenny (philosopher and former master of Balliol college, Oxford) and Charles Kenny (World Bank economist). More details along with extracts can be found here. Utility and Happiness is a 2006 paper by Miles Kimball and Robert Willis, both professors of economics at the University of Michigan.
