I still can’t get over the fact that I am living in one of the poorest countries in the world. Malawi has a GDP per capita of about $800 a year, placing it in the poorest ten countries globally. Just boggles my mind in terms of the challenges the country faces at improving economic opportunity, health and quality of life. On the other hand, they are among the most smiling and friendly people I’ve ever met. And how should that translate in measuring “happiness”, “progress”, and “wealth”?
