Abstract: The creator of the GDP tool, Simon Kuznets, warned
already in
1934 about
impossibility of deriving the gen
eral welfare from the data obtained
with the use of the
GDP.
Recent economics do not take into account all
of the
important factors affecting
the distribution of the consumer ́s preferences, thus threating the assumption of the
consumer ́s rationality. This
thesis analysed significant factors that strongly affect the
level of subjective welfare.
T
he discussion of the reasons of the weak correlation
between changes in income and level of happiness was emphasised as well. In the
part devoted to the methodologic
al issues were presented major problems that can
occur in the research about happiness together with the possible ways how to deal
with them
