Equal opportunity also leads to depression.

I just recently wrote about how equal opportunity makes us materialistic. I just found a study that links materialism to anger and depression.

  • If equal opportunity leads to materialism,
  • and materialism leads to anger and depression,
  • then equal opportunity must lead to anger and depression.

At least materialism also makes us work harder, which increases output per unit of human capital. This means a higher GDP, and that’s all we care about, right?
