Why do ppl promote the lie, 'Money Doesn't Bring Happiness' ?,
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.
