Happy?

Are you happy? If you are, what is it worth? More than money. The United Nations wants to get the world to stop thinking so much about wealth creation, as expressed by gross domestic product (GDP), and to instead focus on gross national happiness, or GNH. You can read the article here

I struggle with this question all the time. I would love to have wealth and happiness, but I am often working towards one or the other, or both.

The GNH scale offers a perspective so radically different from GDP, I thought it would be a good idea to show separate halves of the globe - one side focused on wealth and production, the other on more heartfelt pursuits.

 

Thanks to Dave Bamundo at the Wall Street Journal for this assignment. Happy to work on this quick-turnaround piece!
