Did anyone notice an interesting correlation between figure 2 and the
recently highly publicized poll of "World's Happiest Places"?

It's a bit apples and oranges and lord knows, I don't trust polls or
pollsters, but there seems an inverse relationship that bears
examination.  For example: Denmark, with the most mobility, has the
highest happiness.  The countries with the least mobility (US, UK),
had comparatively lower happiness in same grouping.  And the middle
was in... the middle.

So much for the American Dream...  Come, Watson, come!  There's
mythology a foot!  :-)
