Los países más felices del mundo, según Forbes

La cuantificación de la felicidad no es una tarea fácil. Los investigadores de la Encuesta Mundial de Gallup se hizo mediante una encuesta a miles de encuestados en 155 países, entre 2005 y 2009, con el fin de medir dos tipos de bienestar.

Venezuela no es tan infeliz como muchos países, aunque menos feliz que otros, como se observa en la lista publicada en Forbes.com:
