Finland the happiest country on Earth

"Finland has overtaken Norway to become the happiest nation on earth, according to a UN report.

"The 2018 World Happiness Report also charts the steady decline of the US as the world’s largest economy grapples with a crisis of obesity, substance abuse and depression.

"The study reveals the US has slipped to 18th place, five places down on 2016.

The top four places are taken by Nordic nations, with Finland followed by Norway, Denmark and Iceland."

This proves my hypothesis that sharing a thick blanket on cold nights increases much happiness...

It’s actually all the money from mining natural gas. That much income into countries with relatively small populations is bound to create a lot of happiness.

Money is only as good as the things you don't need buying...

So it’s equal to the more abstract. I agree. You need freedom to be happy and wealthy people have more freedom/options.

Interesting because I definitely remember reading, a few years ago now, that Finland was the most depressed country in the world. Obviously the depression lifted. Cool.

They are the happiest because Finland keeps moving around on the map! A change of scene always cheers you up. :yes:
