Buy Happiness

Whoever said that "money can't buy you happiness"?  Well, I am going to the mall today and buy some.

I stumbled upon this amazing video.  It's a fascinating and entertaining presentation of the data of a social experiment conducted on groups of people around the world.  In each setting, one group is asked to spend a certain amount of money for themselves.  The other group is asked to spend for others.  The small amount of money to be spent is of course given by the experimenters that varies per setting.  Who do you think is happier after spending the money?  Is it the personal spenders or the pro-social spenders?

Would you be happier if you spend money for others?  Are there other benefits of pro-social spending?  Find out more.  Click this this link of the clever video:
