The Unhappy Gap

at

irelandOECD, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s world happiness league is out.

We’re 15th.

Why no higher?

In Ireland, the average household net-adjusted disposable income is $24,104 a year, more than the OECD average of $23, 047 a year.

But there is a considerable gap between the richest and poorest – the top 20% of the population earn five times as much as the bottom 20%.

 

Five times.
