Fewer in Rich Countries say ‘Today is a Good Day’ – US an exception

Very interesting poll by pew reveals that less and less people in the rich world say ‘Today is a Good Day’ … There seems to be an inverse relationship between ‘GDP per Capita’ (National) and the number of people who describe their day as ‘Good’ …

Here is the curve describing the results:

More GDP per capita --> Less 'Good' Day

More GDP per capita –> Less ‘Good’ Day


It would be very interesting to think about the reasons of such a relationship … Is it mere dissatisfaction, lingual differences and social conventions, or does a particular day simply have a higher probability of being ‘particularly good’ in less-rich countries?
