Helena Norberg-Hodge, producer "The Economics of Happiness," joins Thom Hartmann. This week - the United Nations is hosting a major conference on...happiness. That's right - with the world obsessed with wealth, austerity, and debt-to-GDP levels - the United Nations is taking a step back to figure out what makes people in some nations way happier than people in other nations. The conference is hosted by the Kingdom of Bhutan - a small country in the Himalayan Mountains. Bhutan is one of the poorest nations in the world - yet - it's the happiest nation in Asia - and one of the happiest in the world. So what does Bhutan know that the rest of us don't? Well - that's what the United Nations wants to find out. On last night's show - we talked a little bit about this topic by dissecting the nation of Denmark - which routinely tops the list of happiest nations on the planet. So what else can we learn about how to be a happier nation?
