For many, money seems to buy happiness whose duration is too short.
Money buys comfort. Comfort can keep a person happier than discomfort. It's easier to be happy if all of your bills are paid on time, you are healthy, you have a high paying job or a successful business, a lovely home and a brand new car whenever you need one. People who live on the streets don't look very happy.
A quote from Johnny Depp, " Money does'nt buy happiness, but you can cruise up pretty close to it on your yacht". I think that sums it up nicely.
Money helps bring us contentment by giving us means of survival in a world focused around the dollar bill. If contentment is your only form happiness then yes I suppose money can buy happiness.
No, money cannot buy happiness, but it can buy you the free time to pursue it.
Happiness attracts money with which you do good things which brings more happiness....
nope - but it does permit one to share more happiness through interaction with others as they spread the change throughout their environment. This interaction can spur happiness within the collaborative surroundings.
Try asking that to some starving, war-stricken person in Syria!
We rich spoiled Americans have long since lost sight of reality. Even "poor" people are fat in this country! In Syria, being fat is a privilege!
Of course money buys happiness! The only exception is if you're out in the middle of the wilderness, where money doesn't count.
AMEN to you a multillion times.Finally, an intelligent person with a concept of reality Of course, money buys happiness. Any person who says otherwise is totally living in a surreal world.Tell a homeless person that money does not buy happiness.
Hello jabelufrioz. Again a great question. Sharing a little I have just completed a remodel and worked on my hub portfolio, so an odd mood. I read the question and the first thought is "Why of course, yes, when it is for sale."
It SURE does. If one has money, one has ample choices in life. He/she tend to have excellent health care, access to better education and housing. He/she can eat better and more nutritious food. People with money can travel. In other words, money guarantees ownership over one's life while lack of money puts one at the mercy of others.
Having money also prevents stress and worrying about where your next meal will come from or where you will live tomorrow. Money also guarantees life beyond mere struggle and the bare necessities. When one has no money, if he/she is realistic, he/she is NOT HAPPY. In fact, he/she is highly apprehensive of whether or not he/she will be at the socioeconomic abyss anytime soon.
Yes, money BUYS happiness. People who are socioeconomically affluent are happier than those who are socioeconomically struggling. The adage that money does not buy happiness is an inane one voiced by misguided and deluded souls that do not know the workings of the real world, they need to grow up and face reality.
The short answer is yes.
But what it really gets you is freedom and that brings happiness, or at least makes it easier to attain.
I don't think so. Time and again we see people loaded with money and more often than not end up being in more trouble that they can handle. Money is a tool to use in our temporary lives, but it sure does not guarantee happiness.
