About the book
Explorations of Standards of Living have most often focused exclusively on questions of average income and economic development. In this volume we explore how Community Development, Life Quality as well as Economic Development combine to present a more wholistic view of what a Community's standard of living is.
In this volume we invite scholars from a variety of disciplines to submit theoretic, comparative, and case study examinations of how we can better understand what should be meant when we evaluate a community, countries, or individuals standard of living. Explorations that provide insight into both community and individual; life quality, economic conditions, and other key metrics are welcome and encouraged. It is our hope that by bringing together a variety of disciplines to address the key question of what makes of standards of living we can gain insight into how we can increase the subjective and object well being of individuals and communities.
