Here's another great argument
against the money-equals-happiness myth, offering some great advice on what has been proven to correlate to happiness (close friendships, good physical health, good marriages, etc.) and a few great links on the income-spending gap
and a paper called Does Economic Growth Improve Human Morale?
I love your string of posts on money and happiness. What a great misconception to shed light on.
I also really like hearing actual research that supports the fact that relationships and community are what make for a happy and fulfilled life!
Thanks, Kirsten. I've been enjoying the process of digging these up as well. If you ever come across anything interesting in that area, please let me know.
Check out the Global Rich List site and find out how you rate as far as wealth in the spectrum of people inhabiting planet earth! It takes less than a minute and very interesting results!
That's a cool find, Garth. It's sobering, isn't it? We tend to focus way too much of our aspiration attention on the fraction of percent of the world's population who earn more than we do...
I just wanted to save this addition to the conversation as well...Kirsten bounced off my lame post and went way further with it -- great stuff.
