Author of “The Economics of Happiness” and happiness economist Mark Anielski explores what makes communities in both Canada and abroad flourish and experience the most happiness. His research and consulting work in Canada, China and Tahiti evolved into what he calls Genuine Wealth, providing individuals, businesses and communities with a practical roadmap for achieving a balanced life that optimizes wealth, health and happiness. Mark believes that wellbeing will become the new bottom line of business and communities, and that progress will be measured in terms of genuine happiness. Mark Anielski is President and CEO of Anielski Management Inc. (AMI) located in Edmonton, Alberta. As an economist, he works with communities, businesses and governments to help them assess, measure and manage their genuine wealth – the things that matter most to well-being, quality of life and sustainability.
