Blog Post #10

I found that I have not addressed the story of the fisherman and how he was happy regardless of how much money he made. I included information that happiness is affected by how we percieve our neighbors and how much income they have. In my story, I added that the fisherman was likely to have been surrounded by other poor people that did not not have much money. This in turn did not make the fisherman be disappointed with his own life seeing that his neighbors were just like him. This explains why people can just as happy as rich Americans when living in a poor country. This is called relative wealth and has a considerable impact on our happiness. This information i have included fitted well with a counterargument for how money has no impact on our happiness when the people around us are living the same lifestyle.
