Radio Pick: Peace of Mind on TTBOOK

TORONTO, ONTARIO - This week's radio pick again focuses on happiness, this time for content as provided by To the Best of Our Knowledge from Wisconsin Public Radio.

The concept of Gross National Happiness as a replacement for the Gross Domestic Product (as advocated by Bhutan among others) has gotten a reasonable amount of publicity in recent years, but the best explanation of the science behind happiness and the rational for Gross National Happiness was aired this week as part of the "Future Perfect" series on Wisconsin Public Radio's To The Best of Our Knowledge. The key segment of the 53-minute program was the second, in which Richard Layard, Robert Biswas-Diener, Sonja Lyubormirsky, and Satish Kumar all weighed in with their opinions.
