Item description for Quality of Life and Happiness of People: In Japan and the Netherlands (KIT NIOD Encounters series) by Joop Stam, Ruut Veenhoven, Duc Khuong Nguyen, Kendall Thomas, James P. Manning, Marta Rondon & David Mungello...

Quality of life is a permanent concern of all people, worldwide. Often quality of life is equated with material wealth, but affluence and abundance do not always engender happiness.

This book compares the quality of life and happiness in Japan and The Netherlands, two advanced industrial nations with a different culture and institutional background---both of which rose from the ashes of war and both having created wealth and prosperity for their people. On average, Japan scores systematically lower on happiness than The Netherlands. This observation elicited the question: how can we explain the variance? Is it culture and the societal structure of family and friendship relations? Or is it the organization of work and style of management? Or is it the way power is handled in politics and society? In short, what has been the effect of the dominant economic, political and social model of post-war Japan and The Netherlands on the quality of life and happiness of their citizens?

The papers in this book provide a broad spectrum of views and analyses on the quality of life in Japan and The Netherlands and justify the conclusion that happiness is not a trivial matter. Rather, it constitutes a powerful element in the mind of people and serves as a compass in life.
