2. The second piece of pie, or the second $50,000, never tastes as good as the first. So as far as happiness is concerned, it hardly matters whether one drives a BMW or , like so many of the Scots, walks or rides a bus.

3. They are only slightly happier than average. Four in five of the 49 people responding to the survey agreed that \u201c Money can increase OR decrease happiness, depending on how it is used\u201d. And some were indeed unhappy.

4. Money could not undo misery caused by her children\u2019s problems.
5. Most people do not exhibit long-term emotional depression. Remarkably, most eventually

2. Most admitted having considered suicide after their injury. About a year later, only 10 percent

of them rated their quality of life as poor; most described it as good or excellent.
3. They have adapted to the sad news.
4. They expected their lives would be denied by a negative decision. Actually, 5 to 10 years later,

those denied are not noticeably unhappier than those who were awarded tenure.
5. We often overestimate the long-term emotional impact of very bad news and underestimated
our capacity to adapt.

stuff \u201cpoison\u201d and refuses to import it.

to rich countries. And their tastes matter enormously in Africa.
