Happiness is a Good Education

Nick Kristof has a thought-provoking column on Costa Rica, and how high it ranks in various measures of happiness.  They abolished their army in 1947 and put the money into education, which has produced great dividends in economic and gender equality.  I know we can't abolish the military in the U.S.... but it would be nice if we could improve the balance between military spending and spending on education.
