Arthur Brooks’ The Secret to Happiness
Posted by Larry Doyle on December 16, 2013 12:00 PM |
Is there any question more widely pondered than, “What is the secret to happiness?”
I think not.
From philosophers centuries ago to advice columnists today, there are far more opinions on this question than there are real answers. More often than not, I pass over commentaries or clips addressing this topic. This morning, though, I came across a 20-minute clip on happiness, and I did not pass over it. I am very glad I made that choice.
Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute — a favorite site of mine while navigating the economic landscape — offers some great insights on happiness. At the 5-minute mark of the clip, I was intrigued. At the 10-minute mark, I was thinking, ‘Give me more.’ At the 15-minute mark, I knew I had to share this clip with readers. At the culmination of Brook’s remarks, I immediately inducted him into the Sense on Cents Hall of Fame.
I hope you will take the 20-minutes to watch, listen, and learn. Are you so happy that you might not benefit from learning what a clearly astute observer of our economic landscape has to say?
