Abstract and Keywords
This article tells a fairy tale of how humans cope with climate, use money to do so, and end up happy and healthy. It starts off with a brief overview of individual and cross-national differences in well-being and of their economic roots. At the lowest level, each employee adapts his or her own well-being to a mosaic of work conditions, group characteristics, and organizational circumstances, which is perhaps hardly shaped by climate and wealth. At the highest level, each nation's entire workforce adapts its well-being to the overarching climato-economic niche within which all work has to be performed. This article contains a discussion of climato-economic traces in organizations, which might well be generalizable to how the national workforce experiences life as a whole and well-being in organizations as a major part of it.
