  1. Switzerland Tops Global Happiness Index

    Money may buy happiness after all. Prosperity was a major indicator in this year’s World Happiness Report, which awarded Western European countries all but three of the top 10 slots — the others going to New Zealand, Australia and Canada — and the U.S. notably ranked 15th out of the 158 countries.
