GDP and Happiness

Here’s the conclusion:

In the end, GDP and average income may still be the best measures of well-being, in part because they correlate so strongly with other quality-of-life variables such as access to basic necessities, better health, and education. And despite their flaws, they are a pretty good ‘North Star’ to follow. Of course, some people watch Dr. Phil, try to keep up with the Kardashians, are avid fantasy sports league participants, or send 100 text messages a day, exhibiting that even in the midst of plenty you can still have no life.

Wanna see what led up to that?
