"If money talks then it tells lies" ...

Economists and psychologists have spent decades studying the relations between wealth and happiness and they have generally concluded that wealth increases human happiness when it lifts people out of abject poverty and into the middle class, but it does little to increase happiness thereafter. It hurts to be hungry, cold, sick, tired, or scared, but once you’ve bought your way out of these holes, the rest of your money is an increasingly useless pile of paper.

-Danny Gilbert, Stumbling on Happiness
