Mr. Cosh misses the biggest error of Gregg Easterbrook’s premise (even if the guy can turn a phrase).
Mr. Easterbrook is, indeed, correct when analyzing that we are doing extremely well by a broad series of objective and subjective measures.
He then presents a question “why are we so unhappy?”
Almost all the polling and research I have seen on Americans shows we are actually quite a happy people.
Usually, the stories are written by scribblers that let their astonishment of the poll and research results show through.
The cognitive morons, like Easterbrook, still don’t get it.
Even if we say we are happy, they seem to “know” it can’t be true since we work longer than almost anyone else in the world and we aren’t as sophisticated as Europeans.
Mr. Easterbrook should combine his conclusions about our progress with actual work done evaluating our overall satisfaction with life.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
