Can money buy happiness ?

A survey conducted earlier this year by the Pew Research Center reports that 49% of respondents with an annual family income above $100,000 say they are very happy. When income falls between $75,000 and $100,000, the very-happy contingent falls to 38%. Just 24% of those with incomes below $30,000 said they were very happy.

Hot dog. . . . I am in the very happy group. . . . I knew there was more benefits to being on the low end of the totem pole than good college money for my kids. . .

I'm with maxjulian on this one.

"I've always had a poverty mentality; it just felt wrong to attempt to accumulate wealth. Well, since money is the medium of exchange for travel, for example, and the ability to travel is a freedom I desire madly, I needs straight MF'ing cash, BEOTCH. And I don't mean no loan!"

Money can eliminate some of the deprivations that make you unhappy. This creates the illusion that money can make you happy.
