4/23/07: Wealth v. Happiness

The March/April 2007 issue of Mother Jones magazine features McKibben's \"Reversal of Fortune\"

By Jenny Brundin

Salt Lake City, UT – In the American vernacular, saying someone is successful often translates into saying someone is rich. But does that make one happy? In his latest article published in Mother Jones magazine, journalist Bill McKibben argues the economy's demand for constant global growth has eroded local relationships and, in turn, pleasure and satisfaction. Guest host Jenny Brundin speaks with McKibben about economics, contentment and living in a material world.
