What makes us truly happy?


Guests: Cassie Mogilner and Sonja Lyubomirksy

The hectic holiday season is upon us and we’re busy making lists and buying presents for our near and dear. That got us thinking – does stuff bring us lasting joy? Does money matter? Or maybe more time is really what we need. In this hour, Marty explores the connections between money, time and happiness with guests CASSIE MOGILNER, assistant professor of marketing at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and SONJA LYUBOMIRSKY, professor of psychology at the University of California, Riverside and author of The Myths of Happiness.
