    Yes. However, it's not always about money. But sometimes, many of us would love to do something more hands-on, like donate your time to charity, doing visits..etc

    A better question would be "Can money buy YOUR happiness?"

    Everyone has a different thing that makes them happy. It's relative.

    For someone, happiness could be sitting all day in a tree shade watching the cars pass by, while for others it could be hanging around with their family.

    Totally feel you. But you still need to travel, eat, etc.
    Money is very important

    Money can buy happiness, anyone that says anything else have never been poor. And when you already have money, then money can buy happiness for friends, family and others that do not have money to spend. Period.

    Depends who you are. If you are terminally ill money probably won’t make you happy.

    Money might make you happy, but not necessarily. And some people are happy with very little money.

    I think happiness is really about realising what you want to be and becoming it.

    Its simple:
    Money can make someone happy. However, it doesn't necessary means if u have it you will be happy.
    I know people who have it and aren't happy. Im happy when I have it for example.

    Not sure why most people associate money with cocaine, hoes etc.

    I could afford to cover my father's life threatening (fortunately successful) surgery in the best hospital in the region 2 years ago - that made me happy. Being constantly able to provide for my family, affording the best medicare in the region, taking them out in nice restaurants, concerts etc. - this is what makes me happy. I never smoked and very rarely drink and I hate clubs, hoes etc. let alone cocaine or any similar crap.

    So yeah, I would still love my family and they'd love me, we'd get along well but it definitely wouldn't be the same atmosphere if my dad wouldn't make it because of poor medicare, empty fridge, staying home all day because of nothing interesting to do (read: afford) etc. You get the picture.

    I see it more as money = comfort, rather than money = rich crazy stupid lifestyle.
