Happiness Around the World

The Paradox of Happy Peasants and Miserable Millionaires

Carol Graham

  • First in-depth study of happiness which crosses many countries and regions, including developed and developing countries
  • Includes interviews in both Central Asia and Afghanistan which have never been published before
  • Includes new data for Latin America which allows us to use well being surveys to measure how different health conditions affect the health and life satisfaction of people in different countries and socioeconomic cohorts.
  • Includes new surveys of the effects of crime and corruption on well being in Latin America, demonstrating a strong role for different norms in mediating the well being costs of these phenomena.
