Wealth and wellbeing - how much money will really bring happiness?

The research into well-being and its causes has often avoided the topic of finance - yet we all know that money, or the lack of it, can have a material impact on our happiness.


Nab economist Dean Pearson specialises in how wealth impacts well-being, and in this podcast shares:

  •  why time - and home ownership - matter so much
  • how Covid affected the nation’s economic and emotional well-being
  • what types of debt dramatically reduce well-being
  • why your mortgage might be a source of satisfaction, not despair, and 
  • how to invest and spend for maximum happiness.
