Can money buy you happiness? Tell us

Get news updates:What's this?
April 07, 2008

Money might not prove lucky for you in matters of love, says a research paper, but it sure can buy you happiness!


According to a study by Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers, economists at the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania, inhabitants of richer countries are happier than those of poorer ones.


Do you believe you can buy as abstract a thing as happiness? What does happiness mean to you? Are you happy when you have more money in your pocket? Or is it vice versa?


Are you one of those who like the Irish writer Spike Milligan, believes: "Money can't buy you happiness", flatly contradicting the latest research, "but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery."


Tell us. We would like to hear from you.
