Has anyone seen the documentary 'Happy'?

I just saw it and apart from being a serious reality check for me in terms of my value system, I was struck by the notion of Bhutan pursuing 'Gross National Happiness' in a way that only partially looked at economic output....

I think we as community owe it to ourselves to look at this more serious and make it a part of the democratic agenda...

BTW .. I cried many times during the documentary ... but this isn't about me or my feelings ... its about what we can do together

I would love to hear what anyone here who has seen the documentary in its entirety, has to say about it.

On edit : Denmark is shown to be the happiest country in the world - it has free healthcare for life for everyone.
