Newsflash: Money Buys Happiness!

New research proves (sort of) that our old assumption that money can’t buy happiness is not exactly true. Good to know! It doesn’t matter how much you spend, it just matters how you spend it.

Of course there are several other ways to look at the matter.

For example, until you have enough money to pay your basic needs, money certainly reduces stress and at least indirectly increases (buys) happiness. Once you cover your needs, more money delivers greatly reduced incremental returns.

  1. Definitely money (enough of it!) contributes to happiness. The lack of money brings stress, especially when you have to raise kids and you cannot provide in all their needs.
