After two decades of economic growth, people in China aren’t necessarily happier than they were 20 years ago – at least, that’s what a recent economic study found. Better economic conditions haven’t really affected middle-income earners and the poor have become significantly more unhappy. Shanghai-based Worldview contributor Robert Price and economist Betsey Stevenson explain why income and material wealth don’t necessarily correlate with a sense of well-being.
Then, the Voices and Faces Project is a documentary initiative created to help survivors of sexual violence. On our Global Activism segment we hear about their latest project, which addresses sexual violence in the Congo.
And, Worldview film contributor Milos Stehlik checks in from the Cannes Film Festival.
