Job Satisfaction as an Economic Indicator
Explore correlations between job satisfaction and other social and economic indicators. Traditional economics looks at unemployment figures to gauge the overall economy. However, even in times of low unemployment, there still may be some social unrest. Perhaps economists have set the bar too low with the question of unemployment, and should look into job satisfaction as an indicator for some aspects of our society.
This idea was inspired by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper "A theory of Human Motivation".
