Identifying the rise of "happynomics"

Analysis in The Atlantic showed that:

1) Generally speaking, richer countries are happier countries. But since many of these rich countries share other traits -- they're mostly democracies with strong property rights traditions, for example -- some studies suggest that it's our institutions that are making us happy, not just the wealth.

 2) Generally speaking, richer people are happier people. But young people and the elderly appear less influenced by having more money.
