Can Money buy Happiness?
This presentation deals with the questionable correlation between wealth and happiness on both national & personal levels. How can we explain that even though the standard of living in developed countries has tripled over the past 50 years, the national level of happiness has not changed at all? Altogether, how can happiness be measured? What role do genetics play? Which factors assist in eroding our happiness? And finally, the ten rules for maintaining happiness on a personal level (money, by the way, is not one of them).
Please invite your family and friends to join us for this talk by just linking in as indicated below.
Meeting starts at 7.00 pm CET.
