Oh so Happy

The United Nations has published it's World Happiness Report 2013

It has been nicely summarised at Moneyweek

Of surprise to Agata who had thought the many of the poorest nations of the world were happiest.   And of surprise to Marcus who found that Switzerland is #3 in the happiness chart!

In fact I would recommend that you read or at least skip-read this 154 page document comprising these sections

As British living in Lausanne Switzerland, my initial comment was just

Bah Humbug, and that be an end to it

But then I started reading the report, and it is really most interesting, and my initial cynicism has been totally removed.

Give it a read!
