Unhappiness Epidemic

"Can anything be done about this epidemic of unhappiness?"


Schumpeter, "Hating what you do," The Economist, October 20, 2009.


"A survey...found that between 2007 and 2008 the proportion of employees who professed loyalty to their employer slumped from 95% to 39%..."

"The most obvious reason for the rise of unhappiness is the recession."

"Companies need to do more than pay lip service to the human side of management. They also need to learn from the well documented mistakes of others."

"As for the workers, the habit of battening down the hatches, which so irritates many companies, may be a sensible response to economic turmoil."
