The Joys and Dilemmas of Wealth or Coming Soon the Really Real Housewives of Orange County
From the Wall Street Journal:
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is co-funding a study that is believed to be the largest and broadest survey of the American rich ever conducted. The questions will target American households worth $25 million or more, and the study aims to have at least 1,000 respondents -- a massive sample size for people of such a high net-worth level.
The study, called The Joys and Dilemmas of Wealth and scheduled for release next fall, will attempt to probe deeply into the private lives of the rich, from their family and values to their philanthropy and belief in God. It also will use the latest tools in "happiness research" to try to determine whether the rich are truly happy.
Until the study is published, we'll have to settle for The Real Housewives of Orange County.
