The Economics of Happiness and the Significance of Joy | Elizabeth Salinas | [email protected]

With the rise of consumerism, anyone can confuse happiness with “having and wanting and getting”. In her conference, Ms. Salinas tackles the pursuit of joy from an economics perspective, giving us valuable resources to reach true success and fulfillment.

Elizabeth Salinas is an Economics teacher and part time philosopher who is grateful for the opportunity to transform classroom rants into a structured Ted talk. She finds inspiration in nature, running and a good cup of coffee.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
