2530. New study: cost of improving humanity
On this first day of April we are pleased to announce the result of our recent study on the cost of making mankind happy. (all interviewees remain anonymous).
Survey result show that about 50% of the world’s population think that life is worth living and the other 50% responded split between no and maybe. A further survey about what would make life happy (throwing out vague non-material answers) we got the median of those who could get to thinking life worth living is one good house ($500,00) and two Teslas (or more if there are children over 14), 200,000 (taking licensing and insurance into account. (Can’t have happy people driving around without insurance). Taking that figure we get that the total cost of improving the world would be about 5 billion adults, half of whom are not happy (we didn’t separate out not happy from not satisfied)giving us 2.5 million households (normal assumptions apply) 500,00 per house plus 200,00 Teslas plus one vacation per year per household at nearest beach 10,000 gives us the cost of improving the world so that everyone feels life is worth living (rounding off to the nearest trillion) of 127 (US currency).
We look forward to a political party that takes. up this challenge.
