About this book
Argues that wealth is not - or should not be - an end in itself, but a means to 'the good life'. Tracing the concept from Aristotle to the present, this book shows how far modern life has strayed from that ideal. It rejects the idea that there is any single measure of human progress, whether GDP or 'happiness'.
The father and son authors explore what really makes us happy in this work of social and political philosophy. They argue that wealth is not an end itself, but a means to 'the good life', and reject the idea that there is any single measure of human progress.
