    It tends to be Gurus who turn around and say money doesn't make you happy.

    The kind of guys who tell you to follow your passion and do what you love, whilst recalling the story of how they worked for 15 years solid doing what they didn't love to get where they are.

    Seems kind of stupid.

    Money doesn't make you happy, but it can make you're life easier. Once you're living more comfortable you can concentrate on things you couldn't when you're constantly working and stressed, those people around you whom you love you can help out. Help them buy businesses and to pay of their mortgages.

    Ultimately it comes down to this - With money you can see the world, and change the world.

    People are going to say yeah but Ghandi didn't have any money, Deli Lama etc. Their the exception, they had a powerful message.

    Money can buy pleasure, happiness but you cant buy peace with money.
    There are two types of happiness, one belongs to the material elements & another one is internal.
    So, most of the material things can be bought by money. So you can buy happiness with money.

    Surely that equates to money can make you happy. As money is still object of focus.

    Very good answers. This is very philosophical.
    Can explain this answer deeper. The 2 different types of happiness and which money can buy and which money can’t and why?

    This is problem here. How do you philosophy that money is not the object that brings happiness. As money is very important to the acquisition of the objects that brings happiness

    Can really listen to people like the lama on this topic. That’s a different type of happiness. That’s loneliness and a lot of wanking. Lol

    Not popular opinion but real: money is everything, can buy you everything.
    Stop following pretty stories for pussies that you cannot buy love, respect, blablaba...
    This is brutal world, very dirty place, you can buy everything. Be better than others, get more and get fun doing this. This is the purpose of life.

    Happiness is relative.

    EDIT: I don't have the insight to tell you what money can and cannot buy for you. For me, money can buy happiness.

    Allow me to illustrate...

    Suppose I only have one soulmate on this planet and she happens to live in Sydney, Australia. Perhaps she lacks the resources to ever visit North America, where I am, and so do I. Suppose I am also her one true soulmate. Neither of us have ever had or will ever have a truly freeing, fulfilling, and happy relationship with anyone else, with the only exception being us being in a relationship with one another. We live our separate lives and then we both eventually die, unhappy.

    Now suppose I have money. I decide that I want to do some traveling and I decide that a trip to Sydney, Australia is in order. I book my flight and reserve a hotel room for 2 weeks. When I arrive at my hotel, I'm jetlagged but too excited to go straight to sleep, but I know I'm too tired to really go do anything until I at least have a nap. I stop at the hotel's bar to order up a double shot of bourbon, neat with a splash of water and two lemons. The bartender takes my drink order and then disappears into the kitchen. I pull my phone out and start reading through a few emails. A moment later, some gorgeous new waitress appears with my drink in hand and a smile that touches my heart with a gentle caress that calls to my soul.

    Without money, we never would have met.

    Money can't buy you happiness.

    But it will definitely avoid unhappy situations.

    Money can't buy happiness, but that shit can support it.

    It may be true that money can’t buy happiness, you definitely won’t be any happier without it and you shouldn’t go out of your way to not have it either.

    I'm a simple man. You give me money and I'm happy.
