      Is Happiness in Your Wallet?

      Can money buy happiness? Harvard Business School Professor Michael Norton approaches this question with an eye to the data and finds that money does, indeed, buy happiness – if you follow five core principles of smarter spending.  Join The Policy Lab and the co-author of “Happy Money: The Science of Smarter Spending” for a discussion on the benefits of prosocial spending, why you should choose “experiences over stuff,” and why you’d be just as happy driving a Ford Escort as a BMW. Norton will draw from his training and research as a psychologist to describe how you can get the biggest bang for your buck by spending money in happier ways. The age-old question will never sound the same.  Sign up for information on future events at thepolicylab.brown.edu!
