    It appears that those in the "money buys happiness" group seem to equate happiness with consumption. Trips to RIO with hookers, indoor swimming pools, etc.

    I agree money can reduce STRESS. Living the BA for 30 years will program you to think that you need X amount of dollars to be OK.

    On the other hand, I know many people in Mexico that don't even have a $500 dollar emergency fund and they are much less stressed than the americans I know. What they do have though is a roof over their head that's completely paid for and property taxes of about $50 a year.

    In the US not enough money sucks, but happiness pekaks out at 80K annual income.
    Beyond that you are just pointelssly climbing the ladder.
