1. Ecuador’s New VP High on Humor

The new vice-president of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno, is a big
believer in the power of humor. He tapped into the health
benefits of laughter and humor after being hit by a carjacker’s
bullet nine years ago. Since becoming a ”humor convert”, he’s
authored a book on the subject and has spoken at conferences on
the power of humor (including a joint appearance with Dr. Patch

And now that he’s a big time political leader, Moreno wants to
continue to tap into his sense of humor, even to make jokes
about himself and his political party. He also plans to
communicate the importance of humor to employees of the state
bureaucracy as a way to boost productivity and the quality of
service to the public.
