Economic Growth, Happiness, Welfare are few elements important people talks about especially in politics. Based on religion and human rights, we struggle to build the utopian world we dreamed. We dreamed that every single person in the world will have a good quality of living. But what is considered a good quality of living?
Nevertheless, the main thing that keeps the people live is by working, working to get money–a trust transformed into a valued tangible object with society’s consent.
Work, in context of economic, are a bunch of acts human do in order to get a sum of money.
Work, though, in a more modern concept is not just a process to get money, but also to do the process itself according to your passion and expertise. Those are connected to Happiness.
The reality, most people who live in the city (which is the majority) haven’t found the happiness they needed. Sure they get the money, spent it for good things they need. But their mental health is always at stake.
Is Economic Development the answer to human happiness? Or is it only to produce new kind/type of problems?
If Economic Development ≠ Happiness, Where the heck the World is going?!
