Thread: Prices and happiness. Is there a relationship?

    Default Prices and happiness. Is there a relationship?

    Is there a relationship between the prices and the overall population content? Should there be? We hear a lot about the benefits of importing cheap products from abroad because it makes everybody happier. On the other hand the real estate must go up in price in order for everybody to be happy. Am I missing something?
    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Well , americans are not very bright . High prices on real estate they think is excellent ( they like paying inflated property tax ), low prices on mechanically removed chicken scraps ( nuggets ) and chinese plastic throw away items from walmart are also excellent for this sub species of troglodyte .

    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."

    That depends. We are talking about a serious commitment here.

    The gold watch turns out to be gold plated nickle. Cheap bastards.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    Purchasing power makes people happier. That means lower prices in general. The only reason real estate doesn't fit that mold is because people can borrow against the value of their house and buy more $#@!.
