Does it really take $75,000 for a family of 4 to be happy in the United States?


Daniel Kahneman and Angus Eeaton studied the Gallup survey data. They found that happiness increases as income grows up to $75,000, but not after that. Making a million doesn't make you any less emotionally disturbed about your life. Is it perhaps that it's just going to be crazy and stressful no matter how much you make.
