Money and happiness
Via Maria, here’s another study saying that Money Does Not Buy Much Happiness. The study puts the cart before the horse by saying that
According to government statistics, men who make more than $100,000 a year spend 19.9 percent of their time on passive leisure activities such as watching television and socializing. Meanwhile, men whose annual income were less than $20,000 spent more than 34 percent of their time dedicated to passive leisure.
I dare speculate that the reason the guys are making $100,000+/yr is because they aren’t spending more than a third of their waking hours loafing around.
