Join Dr. Raghu Sundaram, Dean and Edward I. Altman Professor of Credit and Debt Markets at New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business, in a Fireside Chat on ‘The Future of Money versus Happiness’ with Dr. Bibek Banerjee, Dean and University Professor of Marketing, Strategy and Economics at the School of Management & Entrepreneurship at Shiv Nadar University, Delhi NCR.For most of the last century, GDP, Income and Wealth were the primary yardsticks used to evaluate well-being & success. However, the idea of wealth creation as humanity’s primary success measure is being increasingly challenged at every level in recent times. Countries, corporations and individuals are being pushed to prioritize aspects like environment, society, personal well-being and happiness as important measures of well-being and success. Dr. Sundaram and Dr. Banerjee will explore the need for reframing long-standing measures of prosperity in the context of changing economic systems and technology.
