The Science of Happier Spending (Partner Event)

Hey QSers,

Wanted to share with you the details for the next Action Design Boston event (a group I also help organize).

Action Design Boston is a group of designers, developers, entrepreneurs, economists and others who are passionate about helping people create positive change in their lives. We sit at the intersection of technology (UI / UX, data science), psychology (behavioral economics, positive psychology), and advocacy, and we focus on exposing our members to cutting edge tools, research, and practitioners in each of these areas so they can apply the latest learning in action design in their respective fields.


Meeting Details:

The Science of Happier Spending

Does money buy happiness? Harvard Business School Professor Michael Norton shows that it sometimes can - when you follow five core principles of smarter spending. Michael is the co-author, with Elizabeth Dunn, of Happy Money: The Science of Happier Spending, and he's joining us on Tuesday July 14th for a special talk about his research and book. Their book provides five research-based principles designed to help people use their money in happier ways - whether they have a little or a lot of it. The book is full of recent research and examples that range from how individuals gain happiness by choosing "experiences over stuff" to how companies seek to create happier employees and 'happier products' for their customers.

Here's the schedule:

6:00 - 6:30 Free food & drink while networking

6:30 - 7:30 Talk and discussion
