Den olycklige pendlaren

Betänk detta när du beslutar dig för var du ska bosätta dig:

According to the calculations of Frey and Stutzer, a person with a one-hour commute has to earn 40 percent more money to be as satisfied with life as someone who walks to the office. Another study, led by Daniel Kahneman and the economist Alan Krueger, surveyed nine hundred working women in Texas and found that commuting was, by far, the least pleasurable part of their day.

Pendling verkar alltså sänka lyckan. Eller är det så att människor som av andra anledningar är olyckliga pendlar i högre grad?
