Happiness and money

A new toy's always fun. Here's another catch from Project Syndicate by ethicist Peter Singer on Happiness, Money and Giving it Away (with a discussion on why governments like measuring per-capita income):
Would you be happier if you were richer? Many people believe that they would be. But research conducted over many years suggests that greater wealth implies greater happiness only at quite low levels of income.
