Happiness Makes the World Go 'Round

Tuesday 10 April 2012

Columbia University's Earth Institute have just made publicly available their World Happiness Report, joining the expanding list of happiness reports emerging ultimately from Bhutan's Happiness Index. There's some interesting results in this one and some that you might expect were more obvious, like the idea that at a certain point, more money won't make you significantly happier. From page five - '...a word of warning for those who expect to become happier by becoming richer...evidence is quite overwhelming that after a certain point the gains are very small'. This for me taps into the 'Enoughness' paradigm I've been writing about for a few years

There's other interesting insight to in regard to the progress of certain countries and overall ideas on what can be done to lift people's happiness.  Mental Health is a major key here yet often ignored as an area of Government support.  You can go to the Columbia website at http://www.earth.columbia.edu or if you want to download the report from here, click this link  It's about 7meg in size

Monday 24 December 2018

Instead the dictatorial nature of what I see as an incompetent strategic leader is unilaterally withdrawing the USA from its long standing and beneficial partnerships with the rest of the world.
