Does Big Government Make People Unhappy?

It certainly makes me unhappy, but is it possible that there’s a negative correlation between the size of a country’s government and the happiness of its citizens? The authors of this study seem to believe so. The good folks over at the Volokh Conspiracy are somewhat skeptical about the methodology, but find it interesting nonetheless.

Interesting. My Marxist prof recently assigned this article that basically argued the opposite point.
