In Pursuit of Happiness
One of things that I’ve taken to contemplating as of late, is the concept of happiness. Not the temporary, pure hedonistic pleasure form, but the questions, “Are you happy? What makes you happy?”
So, here are two interesting links on the topic. First, the much talked about Betsey Stevenson / Justin Wolfers academic article which asks, “Why are men happier, and women less happy today, compared to the 1960s, even though women have made so many other advances that should make them happier?”
The second link discusses that in this recession, Americans are finding happiness in thrift.
Just two things worth pondering.
