Investing in Happiness

investing in happiness ben felix

Money has the unique ability to move economic value through time; money made from work done today can be used to fund spending in the future. Time and money are both finite resources that we have to make allocation decisions about on a daily basis. There is no objectively optimal way to allocate time and money, but I am going to argue that for human investors these decisions should be anchored in the objective of living a happy life, so we need to know where happiness comes from.


Investment involves risks. The investment return and principal value of an investment may fluctuate so that an investor's portfolio, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original value. There is no guarantee that the strategies will be successful. Past performance or the use of an advisor is no guarantee of future results.
