Lieven Annemans – Professor health economics at University of Ghent

‘This book is a catalyst for change. It demystifies the situation we are in today and presents a variety of recipes for change. It is my hope these solutions may inspire many so we can all have a taste of Happonomy soon.’

Jochanan Eynikel – Business philosopher at Etion

‘Happonomy brings economic recipes in a lighthearted way, with a lot of colour and variation. Refreshing for those who are looking for original and bold food for thought.’

Leen Dael – Judge labour and social security law (retired)

‘Surprising! The book is easily readable for people without any economic background. Roadmap to Utopia really made me think about the idea that there is no alternative. Apparently, the alternatives are plentiful and the book really enthuses you to do things differently.’

Jan De Ridder – Reader giving the book 5 stars

‘Books on economics are generally a dull and technical affair. Roadmap to Utopia is the exception to that rule. I wholeheartedly laughed many times and the book really triggered me to think of the direction we want to steer our economic system’.
