Harvard Business School Prof, Michael Norton, explains in this well-worth-your-12 -minutes TED talk that “money can buy happiness,” you just have to spend it right.
Shorter version – spending money on others creates a sense of happiness for the giver, but spending on oneself often does not. He studied this effect in more than 100 countries, rich and poor, and it is the theme of his latest book Happy Money: The Science of Smarter Spending.
Norton has started DonorsChoose to raise funds from individuals to help public school teachers around the country fund their classroom projects. Check it out.
Williams Co, North Dakota, thank you very much. And that is point 6 percent, not six point zero percent. This is all due to mining employment and the new petroleum fracturing production technologies that have created an “Oil Rush” in the region. Unemployment is down dramatically across the entire state. According to 361 Capital, Williams County had a per capita personal income of $116,978 in 2012, versus $39,523 in 2007.
