Tom Gilovich discussing the Headwind/Tailwind Asymmetry.
Thomas Gilovich of Cornell University explains his research into whether experiential purchases inspire more gratitude than material purchases. His work also investigates the possibility of creating “virtuous cycles” whereby the enhanced gratitude brought about by initial experiential purchases leads to a less materialist orientation, which leads in turn to further gratitude, and so on.

Mr. Money Mustache (@mrmoneymustache — Pete Adeney in real life) grew up in Canada in a family of mostly eccentric musicians. He graduated with a degree in computer engineering in the 1990s and worked in various tech companies before retiring at age 30. Pete, his wife, and their now eleven-year-old son live near Boulder, Colorado, and have not had real jobs since 2005.
In 2011, Pete started writing the Mr. Money Mustache blog about his philosophy, which has grown to reach about 23 million different people (and 300 million page views) since its founding. It has become a worldwide cult phenomenon, with a self-organizing community and incredible news coverage.
