Despite decades of double-digit GDP growth in China, many of the country’s residents are still far from being happy. Why have decades of high economic growth not resulted in more widespread happiness? What is the link between happiness and GDP? What is the party and government doing to address the situation and what will they do in the future?

The Role of Happiness in People’s Lives: 10 Years of the Chinese People’s Livelihood charts the progress of wealth creation and distribution in China since the early period of opening up to the outside world economically in the early 1980s and the development of a market-oriented economy through the current 12th “Five-Year Plan” period (2011-2015) with particular emphasis on the past 10 years.

Written by Xu Jingyue, Hua Chunyu et al, this book is edited and published by ACA Publishing in association with CNPIEC as part of a five-book series called ‘Exploring Modern China’. Other books in this series – also available from the same publisher – are:
