It may come as a surprise to some of my readers but I really do believe the Netherlands is a great country. You can talk about a lot of things, most people are rich, social services are quite well and fair and balanced and the nature is very nice. I like it so much that I would like to invite everyone; dealing with all of joy on my own is selfish don’t you think so? And now it seems that in particular children have to come here because according to the Unesco Dutch children are the most happiest children in the whole world. Isn’t that great!
Now we can analyze why this is the case but I will leave that to others. Besides the questions asked by Ingrid Robeyns at Crooked Timber, I will leave it at how do you measure happiness and does it mean the same everywhere?
