Topic for the Upcoming January 5th Event We typically don’t want less; we want more.
We typically don’t want less; we want more. Yet, although Americans’ income has nearly doubled in the last two decades, enabling us to have more, the proportion of Americans describing themselves as “very happy” remained at about one-third throughout this same period. The media generally urges us to keep spending and continually spend more, as if our happiness depends on it. Moreover, this contagion seems to have taken over the world.
Given the rampant nature of this global habit, is there any hope for getting us off of this consumption treadmill ? What if we could offer the prospect of more happiness and satisfaction but in a different form?
These are some questions that our Virtual Roundtable will be addressing on January 5th. Come share with us what you think!
