          Abstract

          Este artículo estudia a nivel teórico la importancia del crecimiento del gasto de consumo en la consecución de la felicidad individual y la satisfacción con la vida. En la primera parte se resumen los principales resultados empíricos a nivel micro (estudios de panel) y a nivel macro (datos de países); en la segunda parte se revisan diferentes concepciones de felicidad; en la tercera se aborda la importancia de las aspiraciones de consumo en la consecución de la felicidad; y en la cuarta parte se propone un modelo teórico, basado en el referente conceptual de felicidad del individuo, para explicar porqué el incremento del consumo puede ejercer una influencia ambigua o poco significativa sobre el bienestar subjetivo, tomando en cuenta las aspiraciones de consumo y los recursos con que cuenta el consumidor. El artículo finaliza señalando algunas líneas para futuros trabajos empíricos que corroboren las hipótesis planteadas.
