according to the study, researchers hv found that in poor countries,
being relatively well off does make for greater well-being.we need food,rest,shelter and social contact.
but in rich, the correlation b'tween income and happiness is "superisingly weak". once comfortable, more money prorvides diminishing returns.

in the long run wealth is like health: its utter absence can cause misery, but hving does not guarantee happiness.
Happiness seems less a matter of getting what we want than of wanting what we hv.

More than ever, we hv big houses and broken homes, high incomes and low morale, secured rights and diminished politeness, We excel making a living bu failt to make a life. We celebrate our prosperity but yearn for purpose. We cherish our freedom but long for connection. In an age of plenty, we feel spiritual hunger.

Money is necessary in life .Money itself does not bring happiness.


Without money however you can not be happy.
If we are healthy and work money will come to us.No way to escape.Just to be active and never give up in life.
I really    love China,半个 中国 人

well, yes, i think money can buy happiness. in day life, you have no money, you can't be happy.

but it does not mean: more money can buy more happiness. they are not in liniarity. i think,  for everyone, there is a best point.
