How to measure the level of happiness and where lives most of all happy people? Alexey Kudrin. Photo: Sergey the main subject of the future All-Russian civil forum Became known to Savostyanov/TASS. It is carried annually out by the Committee of Civil Initiatives created by Alexey Kudrin. This time the forum will be devoted to happiness. Who to whom serves: happiness to economy or economy to happiness? It only seems that the Committee of Civil Initiatives, being going to talk about happiness, climbs on others territory. At all not. In science there is even the whole direction — happiness economy. Because only it seems that happiness for everyone is subjective also it not to measure. Still how to measure, and there are many techniques. It seemed earlier, everything is simple: GDP of the country grows, income at citizens grows, so all are happy. No, in order that it was more happiness, a certain standard of living needs to be reached. And the enterprises, sale, profit, jobs and so on are for this purpose necessary. Hungry can't be happy, though this thesis if desired can be challenged. And on polls wealthy people feel more happily. But also the poor can be quite happy with life too. The economist Evgeny Gontmakher tells what has become clear by one of techniques of determination of level of happiness. Evgeny Gontmakher is an economist "The happiest people live, let us assume, in the countries of Latin America. Not in all, but in a number of the countries of Latin America.

These are the countries where people obviously optimistically treat life, in difference, let us assume, from countries of Northern Europe where at the high standard of living when GDP is higher, traditionally quite high share of suicides. Especially happiness role in economy is relevant now. For example, such trend: young people, having got an education, don't hurry to build career very much. It would seem, they need to seek to buy good apartments and expensive cars. But they prefer travel, new knowledge. And even starting career, all of them equally don't seek for classical consumption. Why the apartment when it is possible to remove the company of friends apartments is necessary? Why the car when has pressed the button in the mobile phone, and in a few minutes is necessary or you go to the taxi, or on a karshering? All this conflicts too to GDP growth which will miss the made cars and the built housing. To calculations of GDP in general there are a lot of claims, the area manager "macroeconomic" of Center for Macroeconomic Analysis and Short-Term Forecasting Dmitry Belousov continues (by the way, the younger brother of the Assistant to the President on economy Andrey Belousov).
