Wealth is considered as an important aspect to survive in society, but to actually live,health is needed,And yet health can't exist without wealth nowaday,so which come first?

I accept this debate. PRO has posed the question, “which come first [health or wealth]?” I will take the position that health comes first. I offer the following definitions:

Health: “The state of being free from illness or injury [1]”

Wealth: “An abundance of valuable possessions or money [2]”

Well, that’s a little disappointing.


Anyway, PRO’s question is whether health or wealth comes first. Based on his first round comments, it seems that he is arguing which comes first in importance, not from a temporal point of view.


If we follow PRO’s reasoning, it can be said that to be happy, we must have both health and wealth. However, they are not equal. Health is the necessary condition, whereas wealth is the sufficient condition [1]. The necessary is more important than the sufficient. If one is not healthy, the wealth cannot be enjoyed, and there are health issues that cannot be fixed by money, so health is necessarily more important than wealth.

Sadly this debate never got off the ground. I have supported my stated position, whereas PRO has not.
