“After a decade of A-grade economic performance and rising prosperity, the question a lot of people are asking is: if we’re so rich, why aren’t we happy?

Our lives have meaning essentially in the context of our relationships with other human beings. So relationships are central to the wellbeing of individuals and society as a whole.”
