Who is the political scientist in the study that says that Finland is the happiest country?

Asked by flo (11804points) 3 weeks ago

Maybe it is Sonya Amade? I’m not sure. https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2019/03/finland-is-the-world-s-happiest-country-again/ I’M trying to find it here but the search engine is not working, I guess.

There is a link to the World Happiness Report in your article. The authors will be listed in the report.

PS It is a very interesting report but no mention of Sonya Amade.

I’m not sure of the spelling but sounds very similar to that. She is a political scientist at Helsinki University.

The editor’s names appear on the front page of the report.

John F. Helliwell, Richard Layard and Jeffrey D. Sachs

The table of contents on page two doesn’t mention the person to which you refer.

But maybe she is not in the list because she’s not one of the editors, whatever that means.

The chart that is shown in the article is from chapter 2 of the report. The authors of that section are:

John F. Helliwell
Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British
Columbia, and Canadian Institute for Advanced Research

Haifang Huang
Associate Professor, Department of Economics,
University of Alberta

Shun Wang
Professor, KDI School of Public Policy and Management

So two authors are based in Canada and one in Korea. No mention of Sonya Amade.

So, is the key “The authors of that section are:”? And so she is in the other sections? It’s not an exact spelling of her name, it’s similar to that, as in it could be Sonja and the last name is something that sounds like that. It could be Emand etc.
