    On units of happiness, we have John Stuart Mill’s hedons. A hedon is amount of pleasure provided by one util. It hasn’t really taken off as a unit of measurement because there is no obvious answer to the question of how many utils a given sum of money or other goods provide, but the corollary of this issue is that you would have a great deal of flexibility should you decide to start using the terms in your studies.
