U.S. 'happiness' in decline

"We're becoming more and more mean spirited. And our government is becoming more and more corrupt. And inequality is rising," [Jeffrey] Sachs said, citing research and analysis he conducted on America's declining happiness for the report. "It's a long-term trend and conditions are getting worse."
Norway gets top billing in this year's happiness study. Denmark, previously number one, is now number two. As far as I can figure out, the conclusions are pretty much the same as they have been in the past ... community and connection are what count ... screwing the other guy doesn't pan out.


  1. Reminded me of Bhutan, the only country in world that has a Ministry of Happiness and has an index for Gross National Happiness.

    Far from wealthy and powerful, but generally happy.

    Choices, I guess.
