Bruce Wagner Explicates the Hedonic Treadmill

It can be hard to define the hedonic

treadmill in easy-to-understand terms. So next time you’re stuck for an

explanation, just point

your interlocutor here, to this week’s Shouts and Murmurs column in the

New Yorker. As a funny, it’s not so funny. But as an elucidation of a relatively

recondite concept in that hazy area where sociology, psychology, and economics

intersect, it’s hilarious.
