Meeting on Happiness, Role of Gov’t and Big Business

Book City Institute has organized a meeting in Tehran to discuss ‘How the Government and Big Business Sold Us Well-Being.’
To be held on Tuesday, the meeting will be a debate on a research book written by UK writer and theorist in sociology and politics, William Davies, ISNA reported.
Originally published in 2015 by Verso Books based in London and New York, the book to be discussed is ‘The Happiness Industry: How the Government and Big Business Sold Us Well-Being.’
In the book, Davies questions the contemporary notions of happiness and well being and argues that they are being wrapped by the forces of numerous government and business institutions to turn the concept of happiness into something that promotes consumption.
