Who’s Happiest?

This from the New Economics Foundation: money does not equal happiness! I have certainly read this before, but it’s worth having a peak at a comparison of “Life Satisfaction” around the world with gross domestic product (GDP). This figure comes from “a well-being manifesto for a flourishing society” created by the New Economics Foundation. You can find them at www.neweconomics.org.

Costa Rice has about 25% of the gross domestic product of Canada, but its citizens have higher life satisfaction.
