Money and happiness: opposing viewpoints

Watch: The Paradox of Choice by Barry Schwartz /TEDTalk and read “You Try to Live on 500K in This Town” by Allen Salkintwo and “How Much Money Do You Need to Be Happy? Probably a lot less than you think.” By Kyle Chayka

For the TEDTalk and for each article, state the speaker’s/ author’s main point and supporting evidence.

Next, create your own argument about this topic. Use evidence from all 3 sources. For example, you could argue that money doesn’t guarantee happiness. Or you could agree/ disagree with one of the authors, restate their reasons, and add your own reasons.

Respond to at least two of your classmates. Comment on their argument: do you agree or disagree, is there enough evidence, etc?
