How PAP can make S’poreans happy without “raiding” the reserves

In Uncategorized on 26/12/2017 at 5:35 am

On a scale of one to 10, the doubling of someone’s pay saw their happiness rise by less than 0.2. The researchers said this was down to people caring more about how their incomes compared to other people’s than how it affected them.

However, having a partner saw happiness rise by 0.6 – losing a partner by separation or death saw the same impact downwards.

The PAP can focus on mental health and making sure everyone has a partner. Err on second tots forget about the partner bit.

Good mental health and having a partner make people happier than doubling their income, a new study has found.

The research by the London School of Economics looked at responses from 200,000 people on how different factors impacted their wellbeing.

Suffering from depression or anxiety hit individuals hardest, whilst being in a relationship saw the biggest increase in their happiness.

The study’s co-author said the findings demanded “a new role from the state”.

The study was based on several international surveys from around the world.

  1. “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” is a popular worldwide hit song by musician Bobby McFerrin. Released in September 1988, it became the first a cappella song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a position it held for two weeks.

    “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”

    Here’s a little song I wrote
    You might want to sing it note for note
    Don’t worry, be happy
    In every life we have some trouble
    When you worry you make it double
    Don’t worry, be happy

  2. sg lost three MPs since the 2011 election for adultery, and several senior civil servants (and one professor/retired judge) for sexual impropriety; these were long before prominent americans, including trump, got complaints of various levels of sexual misconduct; I am sure these guys are less happy and worry more than before
