One of the key concepts to the working is for suckers proof is known as the Easterlin paradox. As you know, the Eastern paradox states that increased wealth, in the form of economic growth, does not lead to increased happiness. So clearly, working which makes few people happy and many people sad, for more money, which doesn’t make you happy, is for suckers.

Once again, the liberal media has shaken my world view. The New York Times reports on a paper that offers a rebuttal to the Easterlin paradox. I haven’t read the paper, but if this is true I might have to re-name the blog and start paying attention to what’s going on around the cubicle farm.

Hat tip (on perhaps the opposite) to Marginal Revolution.
