On ABC this morning, I am not sure how the list was created: 1. Denmark 2. Switzerland 3. Iceland . . . 23. USA Edit: Apparently a British psychologist created the list: http://news.monstersandcritics.com/europe/article_1184965.php/Denmark_wins_as_happiest_country Of course this is clearly an unmeasurable thingy: "According to the survey the United States came 23rd, Germany 35th, and Britain 41st which contrasts with another survey carried out by the New Economics Foundation in which The US, ranked 150th, Germany 81st and Britain 108th."
