We'll speak to Professor Stephen Wu of Hamilton College, one of the co-authors of a study. He’s joined by Derek Bok, author of the forthcoming book The Politics of Happiness: What Government Can Learn from the New Research on Well-Being Call in to share what makes you happy or unhappy about living in New York, and what would improve your quality of life in the Empire State!
