Dani Kahneman - brilliant on happiness - a short video

Using examples from vacations to colonoscopies, Nobel laureate and founder of behavioral economics Daniel Kahneman reveals how our "experiencing selves" and our "remembering selves" perceive happiness differently. This new insight has profound implications for economics, public policy -- and our own self-awareness.

This is a very useful perspective on happiness because it suggests that how we think about ourselves effects our memory. Obvious, perhaps. And he is a great speaker.
