Some people think if a country is already rich any addition in economic wealth does not make its citizens happier. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

40 minutes, 250 words at least.

Okay. Let me take this as an opportunity to present structure and analysis of another latest IELTS essay topic. Like all IELTS essays, this essay also contains two topics:

Topic 1: Additional wealth in rich countries.

Topic 2: Citizen happiness.

Introduction: All you have to do is introduce and link the two topics mentioned above and give your opinion. Like always, let me give a sample intro:

Happiness of a citizen depends on numerous factors ranging from economic well being to social welfare and security. While some people believe that happiness depends on additional economic resources, I think is all basic necessities are met in rich countries, additional wealth does not promote happiness.”

Now, please note that my introduction mentions both topics and I’ve used two construction – “from X to Y” and “While X, Y“.

Body Paragraph 1:

Reason 1 supporting your opinion. HINT: Money only satisfies basic human needs. Beyond that, it does not motivate us.

Example 1 supporting your opinion. Yoga and meditation famous in developed countries because people look for happiness.

Body Paragraph 2:

Reason 2 supporting your opinion. HINT: More important than additional wealth is an equitable distribution of wealth. That is, it should not be concentrated in hands of a few.

Example 1 supporting your opinion. HINT: Martin Luther King Jr. fought for equal rights for blacks. Emile Pinkhurst for equal rights to women.


Well, as I always say, the conclusion should contain elements of FUTURE and IMPACT. So, make a suitable conclusion or contact one of our IELTS experts to help you out.
