Why life is complicated without money? Broadly, speaking nothing can be done without having a coin in your pocket.
Money over powers us, doesn't it make any sence to anyone?
I think I am not alone in this boat to sail?
Your comments please.
If everyone decided money didn't matter, it wouldn't.
it isnt the oil, but it helps in basic needs and if you are not satisfied with your basic needs then theres a prob
it boils down to expectations and wants thar are simple
You can still be happy -- if you want to be happy
Money doesn't matter once you have it...otherwise - and unfortunately - it's all that matters.
There have been times in my life when I had an abundance of money. At other times I had very little to none.
The happiest and most memorable times was when I was working with a low budget.
Everything is much more appreciated the harder it is to acquire I guess.
If it "matters"?
I wrote a hub about "money".

Well... this is coming from a guy that had a professional good paying job before the recession, got laid off, and now is working overnight stocking shelves. Yes, I miss having a grand surplus of extra money... it gives you the opportunity to go out to eat, buy a movie, go to a restaurant, invest, etc. These days I'm living check to check, and I don't have any extra money at all. Thankfully I'm geeky enough to earn money online, it's buying me at least some forms of entertainment.
I am in the same boat as yours. Redundancy during recession is very common. My employer decided to relocate the company somewhere else where the labour is cheaper. So we were laid off many as 10 in my department. It was sad story. I think some are lucky but most of us are not exceptional to recession and redundancy. But, life has to go on, my thoughts are how to cope with the bills, education cost of the kids, pay the house rent so on. We still need money to meet our basic needs. That can't be sorted that quickly or won't expect the final cheque will last for ever. I wish I can make some money like you online.
That is my point. It matters, otherwise....where would you be?
money matters for the materialistic personality, otherwise, as I said, money doesn't matter people do - because if you don't have enough money to be materialistic the people in your life matter more than anything else.
Seriously, read my article. It's about the Misconception people have about money.
Hey Cagsil - read your article - what do you mean re 'make a wish...1% vs 5%'? looking for clarification.
Make A Wish Foundation uses roughly 1% of it's total revenue versus 5% minimum requirement by federal guidelines.
I do not know of any new studies to apply to this, however, there was one study done in 2000. The review was to evaluate all non-profit and charitable organizations that do business within U.S. borders.
The Make A Wish Foundation, that year, used 1% of the total revenue received, for what was claim it was used for. It was TOP out of 200 companies.
do you mean they used 1% for charitable purposes - i don't know what the 'min. requirement' is.
Yes, they used 1% for charitable purposes. The FEDERAL guideline/regulation requires them to use a minimum 5% of total revenue towards what they claim to do.
WOW!!!!!!!!!! not in Canada!!!!!!!! I only look at the regs once a year when our auditors submit a charitable return (kinda like a tax return)- I sign it - I think it is 75% - you have me thinking and I'll look soon at what our forms stipulate - about to go through our annual audit at work. I really think 75% is the no. And so, I do know that a red flag would be raised if that no. isn't met. foundations, for example - not sure exactly how they work - you know they invest etc and when they distribute money to NPO's it must be for charitable purposes. Haven't worked for a foundation - so that could look different - but I'm sure the regs are still tight here in Canada.
Canada tightened up its regs a few years back because of money laundering in relation to drugs. it was too easy to start a charity and not do anything except launder drug/crime related money. And the same with the banks - they tightened up to - e.g. can't deposit more than 5k in cash otherwise they think its drug money. At least that is what the bank regs were last time I looked.
Well, that's the difference. In the U.S. government regulations is nothing but a failure, across the board. A prime example was the collapse of the banking institutions, which lead to the collapse of the Economy into what I call a "depression" era, but is called a "recessionary period".
So, I was talking in the U.S. borders. It's nice to see Canada is a bit more stricter.
i've written more below - but now I realize we are talking about Foundations.
Non-profit companies/agencies/organizations/foundations and Charitable companies/agencies/organizations/foundations are the same things.
They are only labeled for tax purposes. Exact same type services- all assistance to give benefits to citizens. Those benefits can be anything from writing paper and pens/pencils for students or donations made to other companies, on behalf of citizens so they can receive the services of the other company.
It's complex, but boils down to them failing to make the grade. And show the abuses of an supposed regulated system.
How do you find this information? There is an organization I'm interested in looking into.
Look into the federal regulation laws setup for business to operate. When looking, non-profit/charitable organizations.
You might even find out about what the "advocate" groups do with their money too. And, you might see that they do not match up either.
But, you should be able to begin by the U.S. Official Website, specific business laws.
i think the issue is 'foundations' and what they are up to - tax shelters and then distributing very small % to charities - scam - but....in Canada they are catching up to that. And paying 'fundraisers' outrageous amounts that are hidden off shore. But, that isn't the charities necessarily here because of the regs I referred to - that 75% figure.
It might be quicker if you google federal regulations.
But, non-profit and charitable organizations should be listed. I do not have a link off hand. Sorry.
I assure you that money cannot make you happy. I've been wealthy and middle class, but never poor. I was unhappiest when I was wealthy! Perhaps I'd feel differently if I'd ever experienced poverty. ??
money matters because we humans have made it matter.
if rocks were deemed valuable and could be exchanged for goods, then rocks would matter.
and too much money causes problems of its own
Rocks do matter - if they happen to be gold, diamonds, rubies, or emeralds! lol
Money only cause problems for people when they lack the know how of understanding it's power, for which, brings a lack of respect for it's power.
Those who understand the power and respect it, can use it to benefit others. Those who do not, are greedy/selfish/ego-maniacs and down right mean.
By the way, if matters....rocks matter. They actually do have a value.
It is the love of money that we have deemed important and isn't if funny how down through history that has always been the guiding force for how people live their lives our lives?
You are correction in that, which should be most important to us is either ignored or taken for granted;
* Being alive
* Having good health
* Mind & body focued
* Sunlight and a good nights sleep
* Clean water to drink
