    No, you can't buy happiness with anything. But having money gives you the feeling of security so that you're able to pursue the things that contribute to your happiness. Unless you're spending all the time you have on making money or go to great lengths to preserve the funds you have, you can relax and use the time, that otherwise would be spent on constantly worrying about finances, on somehing more useful to yourself. Money can give the freedom to pursue your dreams without the constant worry about mundane little and sometimes not so little problems that not having money can create.

    No, but it certainly makes more opportunities possible. Not to mention the negative effect on relationships that a lack of money has.

    EW!!!

    You remind me of my father, and his sentiments/beliefs on this matter.

    Just to let you know, he had a lot of money, and he was a miserable man with many a facsimile of love, but he died quite a lonely man.

    That being said, in the immortal words of actor Dudley Moore from the movie "Arthur" when asked what is was like to be rich "It doesn't suck"

    So if I give one of the homeless folks at the park a million doll-hairs, you don't think s/he would be happy?

    Well, yes, a significant lack of money would put a lot of stress on any relationship, or, on the other hand, bring a couple closer.

    I imagine buying love is like drinking diet coke. I mean, it's a fairly good imitation, but there's still that unsettling aftertaste.

    You probably shouldn't take me too seriously. I tend to be rather glib about most things.

    I imagine the impact of money on happiness lowers dramatically as the amount increases, but I could see it making a big difference in the smaller amounts (like where I'm at lol).

    I remember listening to a This American Life podcast about money and happiness and apparently there is a correlation up until a certain point. After that, it doesn't matter how much you make. You've hit the money/happiness ceiling.
