Throughout history, definitions of happiness in the East and the West have varied. In the West, perceptions of happiness have evolved over the millennia, spanning from Ancient Greece until present day. Happiness was equated with luck in the Homeric Age; wisdom and virtue at the time of Socrates and Plato; heaven and paradise in the Middle Ages; and instant gratification during the Enlightenment. By contrast, in China, the Book of Documents, an ancient Confucian classic, interprets happiness as the five blessings of life, namely longevity, prosperity, health and inner peace, virtue, and a natural death. Of course, in today’s increasingly multicultural society, people are free to define happiness as they please; many use it as a measure of personal fulfilment.

The political economist Adam Smith attributed happiness to increased wealth. The study of economics looks at ways to grow wealth—such as by increasing utility, output, incomes, and per capita GDP—to achieve happiness. We now know, however, that a higher GDP does not translate directly into greater happiness, because of a theory known as the happiness-income paradox: happiness and income may be positively correlated, but over time, happiness ceases to improve as a country's income increases.

So how do wealth and happiness interact? In China, many family-run firms have amassed enormous wealth over the past four decades. For such businesses, the happiness of family members is inextricably linked to how their wealth is perceived, created, managed, and distributed. Therefore, it is essential that members of family businesses understand how wealth is turned into happiness, and which types of wealth are conducive to happiness.

The 2018 Family Business Forum, co-organised by China Family Business Review and China Europe International Business School, will bring together family business owners, successors, and scholars from the US, Europe, Australia, Southeast Asia, Japan, South Korea, Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan. Participants will hear keynote speeches and attend roundtable discussions on the theme of “Wealth and Happiness”. These will look at exemplary Chinese and overseas family businesses that have managed to keep their family character and culture and maintain growth despite a shifting economic landscape. The discussions will offer valuable insights for Chinese family firms that seek to regain a solid footing in today’s increasingly globalised business world.
