exactly,  Fantasus. I fully concur.
I have meet mny happy people on Pacific Islands and Papua New Guinea.
Their values of happiness are different from ours and we can and shroud not impose our values on them.

I wish that you will provide same facts , not your opinion only.

In 2010 14.3% of Sweden inhabitants were foreign-born. 859,000 of them were from outside of European Union.(477,000 were from European Union countries including former Soviet block states.

 I never said "European Union", I quite clearly stated Europe. Just check the official statistics homepage (it's in Swedish, but I'm sure you'll understand the pie chart): 54% are from Europe, which is argueably most. Official statistics here: http://www.scb.se/Pages/Article____333049.aspx

I have seen there a lot of very happy people however they not are not as rich as Scandinavians are, but they are probably much happier. I may or may not agree with the finding  of Happy Planet Index but its shown that the results depends of criteria used for the ranking. But per capita income is certainly not the right approach. 

Precisely: happiness is totally subjective so the only way to rate it is simply to ask people: which is exactly what I suggested to use in the post you are quoting. You are the one who posted a rating scaled with things like income and "ecological footprint". The only reason to scale the value people themselves answered is if you have some agenda: in the case of "Happy Planet" the agenda is to promote a "sustainable lifestyle".

Isn't this the most important issue?
