Well of course Money can buy happiness, what about homeless people getting money. WHAT DO YOU THINK THE LOTTERY IS FOR? if you see a 10 dollar bill on the ground, do you pick it up or just leave it their?.........................................................Well? You always see little kids just picking up a random penny of the street.

While found money can bring joy happiness can not be bought. Happiness is something experienced I have turned down promotions for more money because would keep me from being able to spend more time with family and friends. I have had more joy and happiness just hanging out at the house then eating at a fancy restaurant. Plus I know I have true friends who like me not my money

Yes, but there is also the saying more money more problems. While yes I would like to be rich I would prefer to be happy. Think of the happiest person you know, now think of the richest. People in the world have kids because it makes them happy not rich. The base of your argument is more money equals more happiness. There is no direct relegation between money and happiness. Other factors have much higher impact on happiness such as family friends and outlook on life.
