Did you read The Economy and You? If you think you're happy, don't. It's an illusion. According to the Wharton School study you can only be happy with money. In fact there is a direct relationship between the amount of happiness you have and the amount of money you have.
For instance, we all know how happy (or at least by outward appearances) Mark Zuckerberg is - 27 and worth billions - he's got it made (OK, so he is basically a jerk and has no friends, will never know if a woman loves him or his money, can't go anywhere without bodyguards, worries constantly about his financial people ripping him off and is destined to live a long and, by most standards, a miserable life). Michael Jackson is dead but everyone knows how much he enjoyed life with his vast fortune. Warren Buffet enjoys his wealth so much that he plans to leave none of it to his family when he dies lest it ruin their lives. Charlie Sheen seems like a pretty happy guy, as does a boatload of wealthy movies stars, politicians, and other glitterati.
I admit it, I really don't know any truly rich people personally. But I do know a lot of people who AREN'T rich and just about all of them seem to be pretty happy. How deluded they must be.
Tell me, what do you think? Is there a direct relationship between the amount of money you have and the amount of happiness/satisfaction you have in life? Leave your comments below.
