TED Talks: Does happiness have a price tag?



Benjamin Wallace: Does happiness have a price tag?

"Can happiness be bought? To find out, author Benjamin Wallace sampled the world's most expensive products, including a bottle of 1947 Chateau Cheval Blanc, 8 ounces of Kobe beef and the fabled (notorious) Kopi Luwak coffee. His critique may surprise you."

  1. Hi Vin:

    Thanks so much for sharing this talk. Very provocative. Very well grounded in common sense. I also learned a lot about how to give a presentation.

    Looking forward to more posts from you.

    Best,
