Not sure if this is the same survey that I wrote about earlier, but Denmark takes the top spot in this happiness article as well. You have to admit-- Colombia at the #3 spot seems to cut against everything they say about freedom leading to happiness. Though maybe it shouldn't be a surprise-- consider the sweeping claims made on the backs of questions like these:
- Taking all things together, would you say you are very happy, rather happy, not very happy, or not at all happy?
- All things considered, how satisfied are you with your life as a whole these days?
I'm curious to see in the upcoming years if the happiness literature continues to fester, gains more of a following (God forbid), or fades away into a bar joke we can all laugh about in 15 years.
