The Politics of Affluence and Well Being

Oliver James, Tom Hodgkinson, Jay Griffiths & Tobias Jones

Tue 15 May 7.30pm

Psychologist Oliver James, author of Britain on the Couch, has spent the last 12 months travelling the world to investigate why, despite the fact that we are getting richer, we don’t seem to be getting any happier. He debates Affluenza with Tom Hodgkinson (editor of The Idler and author of How to be Free) Jay Griffiths (whose new book Wild, explores the need for wild places for happiness) and Tobias Jones, whose Utopian Dreams looks at alternative communities.
