What makes economic well being different than plain old well-being? I fear that not understanding this relationship explicitly runs a risk of shifting the focus from well-being to economic. That is a big past mistake that we are currently dealing with.

Fair enough, Linda, and thanks for the comment!

I typically think in terms of both tangible and intangible assets, and "economic" encompasses all of them. That's actually why I'm carefully illuminating the network among intangible and tangible.

"Plain old" well-being as I've typically encountered it -- for example in research on happiness -- typically refers to intangible assets, often mental, physical, and spiritual health.
