A poll released by Gallup Inc on Wednesday revealed that prosperous nations can be deeply unhappy ones. On the other hand, money or economic growth has nothing to do with a country’s happiness. Seven out of the 10 most upbeat and happy countries are in Latin America – where rising crime rates are a problem.
Based on a report by the Associated Press, Gallup Inc. asked about 1,000 people in each of 148 countries last year if they were well-rested, had been treated with respect, smiled or laughed a lot, learned or did something interesting and
felt feelings of enjoyment the previous day.
