This position, however, is untenable. Efforts to address this question interms of Amartya Sen’s capability approach have been similarly unsuccessful. Instead, I argue, happiness and lifesatisfaction matter because, and insofar as, people want to be happy and/or satisfied; consequently, measures ofhappiness and life satisfaction can serve as measures of well-being whenever happiness is sufficiently correlated with orcausally efficacious in bringing about greater preference satisfaction. While this position entails a less expansive view ofthe uses of happiness and life satisfaction measures, I maintain that if their proponents were to take this line, many ofthe objections to their enterprise can be met
