I think that having money gives us the opportunity to be comfortable. I am not rich by any means, but I do have a job that provides adequate income to provide all of the necessities of life plus some extras. Is my happiness dependent on these things? Not really. Yes, I think that having a home that I can keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer, a car that gets me to and from work, a job that I enjoy and food and clothing to contribute to my happiness. I probably wouldn't be very happy if I didn't have those things. I think that past that...having money for extras and luxuries doesn't make one any more happy than the person who is able to provide exactly what they need to live comfortably. I think that millionaires and billionaires probably have the same emotions that the rest of us do. They might can buy more stuff...but stuff doesn't equate to happy. I think that happiness is something that we gain when we learn who we are and what activities/people are best in our lives.

No, I don't think money can buy happiness. Money can help with financial difficulties and make life easier but I think happiness comes from within. I know many people that don't have a lot of money but they are still happy folks because they like their job, have good relationships, and aren't chasing after money.

Not nessesarily it's really what your going to buy if it will fulfill desires and if you have any one to spend it on.
