Somebody must be the happiest nation on earth. Guess who? Kari Paul on a DNA study covering over 130 countries:
Researchers at the University of Warwick’s Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy wanted to find out why countries such as Denmark and the Netherlands regularly outrank similar high-GDP European countries in happiness. They found three kinds of evidence suggesting high levels of life satisfaction may not be entirely due to standard of living, but rather to genetics.
It’s in the genes. If you’re not happy, blame your parents.
