Money can buy happiness, apparently

Or, according to this article, more correctly:

there's a 72% correlation between per capita GDP growth in a country and its citizens' happiness.

And by worldwide standards, we're doing pretty damn well in here in America. But what about "mo' money, mo' problems" and "money doesn't buy happiness"?

Maybe those are just ways of telling ourselves we don't need more?

PS - the article also says we're making more babies than at any time since the 70's, and have the highest rate of any developing country. I'll let you draw your own correlation between sex and happiness.
