11 Feb The link between wealth and happiness
If you’re looking for a map of world poverty, check out the “2007 Index of Economic Freedom” jointly published by the Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal. You might think that’s a strangely titled source for a poverty map.
The 13th edition of the “Index of Economic Freedom” examines 10 economic characteristics of 157 countries. Among those characteristics are property rights, monetary stability and freedom from government, trade restrictions, business regulations and government corruption. Using these measures of economic freedom, countries are ranked.
Is there a link between happiness and wealth? Well, I’m not sure this research or this article completely answers this question but it will certainly be of interest to many who enjoy thinking about this topic.
