    I think the vast majority of studies sociologists have done concluded that around the world financially "poor" people are just as happy and satisfied with their lives as "rich" people.

    (assuming we aren't talking about the ones who are worried about where they'll get their next meal)

    Happier, I believe. The ones who have the most complain the loudest.

    Again: if the good old USA isnít satisfactory, because it has this thing or lacks that other thing, and you donít think itís worthwhile to be the change you seek, and you will GTFOH, what do you offer your newly adopted homeland in return for accepting you?

    I recall that what most of them find/found is that there is a happy medium / bell curve kind of situation (as with most things it seems). You get happier up until a point, then less happy with more wealth. That said, I think most of them ID'd family/community as the single most important factor.
