The Art & Science of Happiness

Chris Hsee, Theodore O. Yntema Professor of Behavioral Science and Marketing

In this talk, Professor Chris Hsee will share with you insights from a new science which we call "hedonomics." While economics studies how to maximize wealth with limited resources, hedonomics studies how to maximize happiness with limited wealth. Building on empirical research in this field, Hsee will introduce 10 practical strategies that you can use to make yourself, your friends, your employees and your clients happier without having to spend more money. These strategies tap on topics ranging from how to make decisions, through how to pay others, to how to give gifts.

Join us for a practical look at ways which you can augment happiness in your workplace and beyond!

Please note that this event will be proceeded by a Reception with University of Chicago President Robert J. Zimmer at 6:00pmLearn more.
