The relationship between money and happiness is pretty darned small,". That's not to say that increased income doesn't matter at all. There is a very small correlation between wealth and happiness. People who are poor seem to get much happier when their monetary prospects improve, as do the very sick. In these cases people may be protected from negative circumstances by the extra cash. Another possibility is that the money brings an increase in status, which may have a greater impact on happiness. Why doesn't wealth bring a constant sense of joy? "Part of the reason is that people aren't very good at figuring out what to do with the money," Do u think money would bring happiness in your life?? or is it that while money may not help make people happy, being happy may help them make money.

NO. Money is the root of all evil. I have been poor, in the middle and at the top. Money is just the source of more debt. They say the more you have the more debt you have. They are right. The only thing that can make you truely happy is yourself, and those you surround yourself with. Money and objects do not matter in the end.

No it doesn't. There are alot of people that are rich but are unhappy. Just because you can afford everything in life doesn't mean you are content with yourself.

Money doesn't bring happiness; but it certainly lubricates the path towards happiness :)
