But because the review was published before the Chicago Tribune began digitizing and archiving its articles online, there was no direct Web link to the review itself — only citations of it.

Friday, June 19, Volume 4: Iran Launches Official Matchmaking Site to Promote Marriage Iran took a drastic step toward promoting marriages and families this week, launching an official matchmaking website on Monday.

The government no longer promotes family planning programs, and legislation passed last year outlawed surgical sterilizations.
Mahmoud Golzari, Deputy Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports, emphasized that the new matchmaking website is not for dating, but rather for encouraging marriage through careful selection by professional mediators. Retreat From Marriage Gives America the Blues If Americans with higher incomes report higher levels of happiness, why have reported levels of happiness declined during the past fifty years when living standards and incomes have increased? Among economists, prevailing theories to explain the paradox rest on one of two claims: Bartolini of the University of Siena and his colleagues came to their conclusion after discovering, in their first set of regressions using U.
General Social Survey data between and , that several variables—including changes in household income, reference income a measure of income relative to peers , work status, and demographic characteristics—did not satisfactorily account, in their most sophisticated models, for the decline in self-reported happiness over the same time period.

Their findings therefore go a long way to explain a paradox that has puzzled their fellow economists while confirming that money, indeed, does not buy happiness.
