A study was done a few weeks ago that showed that money can make people happier, so long as that money does not exceed an annual income of $75,000 per year.
The study, performed by Gallup and reported by the Wall Street Journal, "The perfect salary for happiness: $75,000, "notes that, "The magic income: $75,000 a year. As people earn more money, their day-to-day happiness rises. Until you hit $75,000. After that, it is just more stuff, with no gain in happiness."
So hows that. If you make more than $75,000 you won't be any happier, so what's the point. In my view, this seems like a perfect primer, and a study set up by progressives, who are always looking for that magic number of which to say, "If you make more than this, we're going to tax you."
It's true. The progressives want us to be content with making less than $75,000. In this way, we become content with our lives the way they are and stop trying to make more.
The whole purpose of this poll is because the progressives (the media, schools, etc) are trying to condition us not to want more money. In an Obama economy, it is getting harder and harder to make more money, and progressives want to condition us to get used to this. They don't want us to feel like failures for making less than $75,0000, because it may not be possible.
Of course we had FDRs New Deal where they taxed up to 90% of their profits, and during the Great Depression it was nearly impossible to get a job, and it was even harder to move up the ladder and make more money, because capitalism was stopped, hated, loathed.
The economy never recovered until 25 years after the stock market collapse of 1929.
The same is going on right now with the Obama economy, with his stimulus plan that does not stimulate but advances progressive policies, and calls pork spending bills stimulus bills.
Obama also noted that we should expect what we are going through right now the new norm. So it only makes sense that the media wants to condition us to appreciate lives
