A growing literature on the economics of happiness has used behavioral psychology to enrich traditional theories of growth and welfare and produce broader measurements of quality of life. Global surveys now shed light on age-old questions about "the good life," even if, as Graham and Lora are careful to point out, there are many methodological imperfections. Chapter authors are similarly careful to qualify their findings as inputs that should inform policy debates but not necessarily.

The authors' analysis builds upon a number of new approaches in economics, particularly those related to the study of happiness and finds a number of paradoxes as the region's respondents evaluate their well-being. These include the paradox of unhappy growth at the macroeconomic level, happy peasants and frustrated achievers at the microlevel, and surprisingly high levels of satisfaction with public services among the region's poorest. They also have important substantive links with several of the region's realities, such as high levels of income inequality, volatile macroeconomic performance, and low expectations of public institutions and faith in the capacity of the state to deliver. Identifying these perceptions, paradoxes, and their causes will contribute to the crafting of better public policies, as well as to our understanding of why "populist" politics still pervade in much of the region.
