It will do make me happy if i am very rich now.Though in my life money is not all the things,for now it means a lot.If i am rich enough now,i wouldn't be worried about to find a job and ease the worry of my parents.If i have enough money i will send my brother to study aboard and made him becoming a better guy.If i am rich enough i will buy myself a lot of clothes and dressed beautiful everyday.If i am rich enough,i can do anything i love to and that can reduce many bothering things.So money can make me happy,at least for now/

I agree with you even though they say money can't buy you happiness I think it would make life a lot easier. I would be less stressed and worried about money, and that would certainly make me happier. I would be able to go to lots of place and take part in lots of activities without worrying about the cost. I certainly think more money would make me happy.

I don't think that money would make me happier. But it would make my life much easier. There's so much things in life that require money. No matter how little it is, money is involved. If you want a better education, you'd have to spend hundreds, even thousands of dollars. You can't always rely on grants or scholarships. Or even financial aid; because face it, we might not even qualify. Money can give you what your heart desires and wants. I guess, it could make you happy for that specific moment. After that moment passes, you're back to square one! Needing more money and not having enough of it.

How many times you've heard 'money is not everything'/ 'money is not the most important thing' and all that! But still we run after money and keep asking this question to almost everyone. This only proves how important is money. In our society, the way we made it, you cannot do anything without money. No one will care for you if you don't have money. You cannot feed yourself if don't have any money and have a great honest heart! Love and honesty can't buy Mcdownald's/ KFC/ Pizza from Pizzahut... money can. Yes, money can give you some happiness. When you are sad or alosne if you have money you can go to a good restaurant and have good food. Or go for shopping from a big shopping mall. or even go for a movie with your friends. Believe me in the bad times these little things give you happiness. And without money you cannot have any of these. and no one will help you because you are good person. So don't dismiss that money cannot buy happiness. It has the power to make you happy.

Money is how we can afford all of our wants and needs that makes us happy.I think money can make me happy but not buy me happiness. Happiness cant be purchased at a store or online, but I'd definitely be happy if I was out of debt.

Well,money is the basic requirment for all humans but i think it cannot bring the happiness.Yes,sometime we think that if we have pots of money we will be the happiest but it is wrong.I think we should be happy what we have.Yes,requirement will be there but we have to control it and have to be satisfied what we have.

Money is not EVERYTHING ! Yes that's true, we need love, we need friends, we need to have a good job etc, it all sums up to Happiness and Everything. But Money is the first thing I need to get to that "Everything." How can I enjoy life with my friends if I don't have any money ? How can I give them gifts ? How can I donate and help the poor in Africa ? How can I get a good education in order to get a good job ? So, to me, money is A TOOL to get to have everything. The more I have, the more I can help others to get there too.

Yes, it will make me really happy if I can make at least 1000$ a day which is my life time aim. Why ? It makes me proud that I can make a lot of money, in which I will try to by my favorite type of car SKYLINE GTR !!!! I wish I had that type of money now, I don't want to get too old to drive these types of cars.
