    the notion that people should just be spending their entire lives striving for more and more money is depressing and dumb. People shouldn't waste their lives and talents fighting against artificial scarcity.

My understanding of your mindset is that the economy.is just this huge game of musical chairs, where the only point of professionalism is to make the most money possible. Honestly that just seems fucking stupid. In your worldview, who do you want to be your nurse in the hospital? To take care of your children in daycare? So far, you've described that level of professions as undeserving of respect - such that the people who do those jobs are lazy or not driven enough to deserve material comfort. If a childcare provider needs more money, they should just start a business - no matter that they might be a great childcare provider.

    That's what I absolutely don't understand about that mindset. People who are good at their jobs and like their jobs should be valued because they make our society better. I dont want everybody to start a fucking business, no matter how easy you might say it is to do.
    yeah that other poster said if short order cooks or something made as much as his wife, who was a teacher, then she would quit teaching go become a short order cook and her masters degree was a waste. head-scratcher

    Kahneman suggests happiness plateaus at $75k. Basically if all your primary needs are met, thereís no longer a linear line for more money and more happiness.

    As somebody who made less than $75k and then more, I would disagree with this. But YMMV.
