According to the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science, the Danes win again, they are the happiest people on Earth.
Overall, despite what the media would have you believe, the study shows that the world seemed happier in 2008 …. various reasons were given. The United States ranked 16th, with Zimbabwe bringing up the rear (no doubt President Mugabe will order his subjects to get happier). I for one will stop my 5-doughnut-a-day habit and switch to eating danishes instead …. certainly that will work.
One finding of the poll (partially sponsored by the National Science Foundation) was that 81% of Americans felt the nation was going in the wrong direction.
That’s shocking! Nearly one-in-5 think everything is progressing well? Are there that many people living in isolation with everything that they want?
