You have probably heard of the United Nations’ World Happiness Report and how the Scandinavian countries, especially Denmark, score so well every year. If you’ve ever been curious about how Denmark ranks so highly, and if they have something we should try to copy, I’d like to recommend a podcast that explores this very issue.
“How to Be Happy” was broadcast on August 15, 2018 as Freakonomics Radio’s 345th episode. It can be found at http://freakonomics.com/podcast/happiness/ .
I don’t feel qualified to pass judgment, but let me ask this — what’s the more important measurement, Gross Domestic Product, or Gross Domestic Happiness?
