The more you earn the happier you are?

The secret to a happy life is about as elusive as a solid definition of happiness itself. As with US Justice Potter Stewart's definition of obscenity ("I'll know it when I see it.") happiness is probably best understood when experienced.

  5. Want to live in the world's happiest country? 
  6. A Map of Global Happiness and Well-Being?
