Title: How Should Happiness Guide Policy? Why Gross National Happiness Is Not Opposed to Democracy
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Johannes Hirata

Description: This article is concerned with Gross National Happiness (GNH) as a guide to public policy decisions. The article briefly summarizes the author's conception of "deliberative democracy" as a system of policy formulation and implementation within government, and examines how policy based on GNH would fit into such systems.
