I see that everybody says they would rather be smart. So, just to play devil's advocate, and take the side that nobody has taken yet: If you were rich, you could hire smart people to do your thinking for you. Also, you might be able to enjoy your riches more if you were stupid than if you were smart, because you wouldn't feel guilty about having so much when so many people have so little. If you were stupid, you would never even notice that, so it wouldn't bother you, and you would be happier.

smart, because if you're smart you can get rich. if you're born rich, doesn't mean that you're smart or you'll ever be one.

I'd take being smart and poor any time. I'd never want to go through life as an airhead no matter how rich I was.
