Roadmap to Utopia

This book is about money, work and happiness, although in a different style to what you might expect. Bruno Delepierre gives you a view of our economy and he offers you answers to a wide range of intriguing questions such as:

  • Why do we work?
  • Are rich people really less sociable?
  • How is our money ‘created’ and by whom?
  • What does a mortgage loan have to do with your health?
  • Will you soon have a robot as your co­-worker?


As well as a razor-sharp economic analysis, you can also expect a wide range of provocative solutions for the problems that we face today.

In a clear and science-­based approach, the author shows you how we can make the seemingly impossible possible: by waking up in a society where both businesses and our economic system are put to the service of our quality of life and happiness. It is up to you to decide the most suitable word to describe this, but here are some suggestions: happiness economy, post-capitalism or “happonomy”.

You are in charge of ­ or actively involved in ­ economic policies and you aspire to upgrade our economic system sustainably according to numbers and recipes.
