One of the most frequently asked questions is “Does money make you happy? While some of us would agree, a few of us would deny this outright. Implying with the latter, a news report from Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) suggests that happiness is not always associated with monetary value.
The report highlights factors as GDP per capita, freedom from corruption and having someone to count on in times of trouble as key essentials for happiness. As such, Denmark is declared to be the happiest country in the world followed by Switzerland, Iceland, Norway and Finland.
On the contrary, Burundi has been associated as an unhappy country in the world followed by Syria, Togo, Afghanistan and Benin.
The U.S. ranks at #13 implying that for a society that just chases money has its social values diminishing. How true! As individuals we know the bitter truth, but yet don’t give up chasing the evil of all sins!
