Latin Americans: The Happiest People on Earth

Postby Rocky Top » Thu Dec 20, 2012 2:39 am

Latin Americans rank as happiest people on planet

A poll released Wednesday of nearly 150,000 people around the world says seven of the world's 10 countries with the most upbeat attitudes are in Latin America.

Many of the seven do poorly in traditional measures of well-being, like Guatemala, a country torn by decades of civil war followed by waves of gang-driven criminality that give it one of the highest homicide rates in the world. Guatemala sits just above Iraq on the United Nations' Human Development Index, a composite of life expectancy, education and per capita income. But it ranks seventh in positive emotions.

Most of these poor countries in warm climates do NOT have 24/7 News, talk radio or TV talking heads. That alone would make you tons happier.
