The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has held an international forum in Rome on whether happiness is measurable and what this means for policy. Speakers included Ed Diener (University of Illinois), Alois Stutzer(University of Basel), Ruut Veenhoven (Erasmus University Rotterdam), Johan Norberg (free market critic of the happiness consensus) and David Halpern (UK prime minister strategy unit). Some of the presentations are available on the organisation┬╣s website. Perhaps the OECD should change its name to the Organisation for Happiness Development?
