What is the psychological rationalization that money does not buy happiness when all around


it is quite evident that having socioeconomic wealth means an overall better quality of life for all concerned? What is the logic behind some socioeconomically poor people indicating that they are "happy" when in fact, they are socioeconomically sinking & surviving, not succeeding & thriving? What makes people HATE the attainment of socioeconomic wealth so much?

    GREAT answer but you weren't overpaid. You had the education, acute intelligence & work experience & you were aptly compensated for this in the corporate world.

    Chris, thank you for your response. In many societies, it is good to be successful but not TOO successful. There is a negative connotation in many people's purview re: the overly ambitious, successful & wealthy. They are viewed by many as greed
