Happiness and Money

Carol Graham of the Brookings Institution wants to better understand human well-being and how to advance it. Her study found that while money is important, such things as health, stable employment, friendship and family also weigh heavily in a person’s self-report of their happiness. Entrepreneur Ted Leonsis says he has found that truly happy people recognize a higher calling to leave more in the world than they take from it. In a video news report prepared for Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, correspondent Bob Faw explores the means of measuring quality of life and strategies to promote it.
