The World’s Happiest Nations

I found an article posted on Trump Blog by Mr. Donald Trump’s about “The World’s Happiest Nations”. According to this, the happiest nation is Denmark. Enjoy the article below:

How happy are you? Not as happy as if you were living in Denmark, apparently.

Denmark is the world’s most content nation, according to a recent study on global well-being. Surprisingly, I think, the United States is way down the happiness list at the Number 16 spot. Researchers at the University of Michigan said Denmark earned the top spot thanks to economic prosperity, stability and democracy.

“I strongly suspect there is a strong correlation between peace and happiness,” said Ronald Inglehart, a political scientist at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research. “There is also a correlation between democracy and peace. Democracies are less likely to fight each other than non-democracies.”

At least the good news is that despite the economy, the housing and credit crises and rising fuel and food prices, we’re all supposedly getting happier. Researchers said that compared to a similar study conducted two decades ago, respondents were much happier.
