"It is very difficult to think straight about well being"

I have linked to and shared a bunch of TED Talks over time. As we approach the election here in Franklin, memory and experience will be important. What do we think of the candidates? What have they recently done that we like or dislike? While a small number of them took up the offer to answer three questions to help create an informed voter, the perceptions of the voters will matter greatly.

Hence, this talk from Daniel Kahneman may help us understand the relationship between memory and experience.
