Can Money Buy Happiness?

This video gives us a glimpse into the different ways that people in need respond to the gift of money, but it’s not what you might expect.

The truth is, it isn’t money that makes people happy. Give a poor man $1,000 and he’s likely to offer a heartfelt thanks. Give a rich man $1,000 and he is likely to think you’re a fool. It’s not the money at all, but the access it gives you. If you can’t afford to put food in your stomach, you certainly aren’t going to be happy. Conversely, take a good look at the man who is handing the money out in this video. He seems happiest of them all. So, maybe money can buy happiness… most especially when you can spread it around and ease someone else’s burden.
