Measuring Happiness
Measuring Happiness

AIR DATE: February 25, 2013

Economists who have been calculating gross domestic product and trade deficits for years have turned their attention to happiness. They want to know what makes people happy, and what governments can do to promote more happiness in their citizens. But first they have to know how to measure happiness in the first place. So what does happiness mean to you? And do you know what you need to acheive happiness?


Carol Graham, author, Happiness Around the World: The Paradox of Happy Peasants and Miserable Millionaires

Steven Kalas, counselor and columnist for the Las Vegas Review-Journal

Pastor Robert Fowler, Victory Missionary Baptist Church

I would guess that any pastor, having seen every side of life and worked with often thousands of people, would be highly qualified to speak on happiness. They, of any profession, would be exposed to the depths and the heights of human emotion and be well placed to contritbute to the dialgue.

Why does State of Nevada continue to have ... Pastor Fowler as a guest? Also, what qualifies him to give an opinion on happiness? [part of the text of this comment has been deleted for reasons of civility.]
