Call You and Yours with Julian Worricker. What will it take to make you happy? A new study says that 50,000 pounds is the amount of money you need to buy happiness. But is money enough? How much is a happy workforce worth to the economy? Depression is a major cause of absenteeism from work - in a climate of cuts and strikes will this get worse? The US has the pursuit of happiness enshrined in the constitution - is this a sensible approach? Whose responsilbiity is it to make us happy? is it ours alone or should the government do its bit? With jobs under threat, public services being cut and the unions calling for civil unrest how will the morale of the UK hold up? Call You and Yours - a political, social, economic and environmental look at the state of happiness. Your thoughts in advance via the phone or email will be very welcome.
