Sixth largest economy? Unhappiest of Cities? Happiest? What of my personal plight???
It has been quoted, “Wherever you go, there you are”. Your troubles, such as they are, follow you. Life for you in a city with one of the largest economies, what is it like? In a nutshell, stress. “Stress is a fact of life- an unacknowledged epidemic, the true scale of which is still unknown”. (Cliff Ranson, editor in chief of Popular Science Magazine) And the hustle, bustle of work (at, going to, coming from), the clang and bang of the street day and night exacerbates and you have a recipe for unrelenting stress.
Here is your everyday situation; According to David Lincoln, Wealth-X’s director of research, Boston, “The sixth largest economy in the U.S., is included in Wealth-X’s list is because it is home to “massive” financial, life-sciences and high tech industries. The biggest companies in the Fortune 500 based in the Boston metropolitan area are an insurer, a defense contractor, office supply company and home to one of the largest retailers, medical device maker, etc.” (Excerpted) You name it.
Great! Right? Here’s more: “So, it comes as not much of a surprise that Boston ranked as the third least happy city based on its tweets, in a recent study done by Brandwatch, a social intelligence firm based in New York”. (Hilary Milnes – Staff Writer, BostInno)
Even more: “In addition the housing in next-door Cambridge near Harvard University is notoriously expensive, with an outrageous cab fare to boot”. (Excerpted from SUSANNA KIM (@skimm) Oct. 19, 2011, ABC News) And this? “No. 7 Happiest City: Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, Mass” (Forbes) Confusing? Contradictory?
