It was recently announced that the UK came 19th in the World Happiness Report and yet we are allegedly the fifth richest economy in the world.
What is the point?
– the economy is not achieving what its essential purpose should be and we are at least 14 places too low.
Now if we were number 4 in the World Happiness Report that would be a result.
Err, we want GDP per capita, not just gross GDP, and we want it at PPP too. Where the UK is 24 in the list. Meaning that our happiness is 5 places up from our economic ranking. Neoliberalism makes you happy, you see?
