This book critiqued the economic model adopted by the governments in the Anglophone countries. It also attempted to explain the Easterlin paradox of stalled well-being. It has argued that many of the social problems that afflict affluent societies would be better addressed in terms of social value — through building cultures of mutuality, respect and belonging. Throughout this book, the gaps between welfare and well-being are traced to the divergences between the regulation of social interactions through contract and culture.
