Can You Buy Happiness?

Can you really buy happiness? Benjamin Watson doesn’t think so.

Watson tried, tested, and disproved many of the most luxury products and destinations in the world for his keynotes address at the Technology Entertainment Design (TED) Conference in California. When you’re watching this video, keep in mind the notion being presented is that an item or object is only as valuable as one perceives it to be. I found this to be incredibly relevant for our small business themed blog because it supports the thinking that beauty is always in the eye of the beholder and, while money may be able to buy security and comfort, it doesn’t necessarily buy happiness.


PS.  If you haven’t already logged on and check out the many interesting topics that are covered at the Technology Entertainment Design (TED) Conferences, take a minute to indulge yourself here. TED is a non-profit organization with a mandate devoted to ideas worth spreading. TED holds conferences each year that welcomes some of the worlds most innovative, creative thinkers to do the best presentation of their lives in 18 minutes or less.
