  Let me state from the very beginning the paradox of money: that money, one of the greatest instruments of individual freedom ever invented by man should have become an instrument of political exploitation in the hands of effects of this abuse go further than upsetting the financial equilibrium of market economies and reducing their productive progress. People often have conflicting ideas about whether or not money can buy happiness. Some believe that the lifestyle that money can offer is equivalent to happiness, while others fear that money can lead to greediness that can never be satisfied. In this study, psychologist Daniel Kahneman and economist Angus Deaton seek the answer to this question.

  If this “Easterlin paradox” were right, many economists and indeed many governments might be wasting their time trying to raise incomes. Best, then, to forget income altogether – and focus on happiness itself. Easterlin’s paradox turned out not to be so clearly paradoxical.

  If Keynesian fiscal policy gives people temporarily higher incomes and if the percent of that higher income spent on consumption is high, then the Keynesian multiplier is at work. People, including Friedman, used the PIH to say that when incomes go up temporarily people will spend only a small percent of that income on consumption.   The Jevons Paradox is a very important concept to know if you’re trying to understand our world and analyze our situation. The graph above helps illustrate the Jevons Paradox. It shows the cost of a unit of artificial light (one hour of illumination equivalent to a modern Watt incandescent lightbulb) in England over the past years.
