Sustainable happiness is a timely and important topic.  While improvement in wealth can temporally increase consumers’ subjective well-being, such increase is often transient due to raising expectation and hedonic adaptation.

In this conference, a multidisciplinary effort was employed to dissect China’s growth and transformation centered on considerations of property rights.

Chicago Booth co-hosts events with our worldwide Chicago Women in Business Alumnae Network (CWIBAN) each year.

Technological developments, population growth, inter-communal violence, climate change, resource scarcity, economic volatility– these are just some examples of uncertainties related to globalization that impact life in today’s world.

This workshop allowed participants to present their research and to plan an international collaborative project (Chicago-Beijing-Tel Aviv) to develop a multilingual (English, Chinese, Hebrew) and cross-cultural “Online Cultural Heritage Research Environment” (OCHRE) that uses advanced information technology for the purpose of data integration, spatially accurate 3-D visualization and agent-based simulations of ancient socioeconomic and ecological dynamics.
