Does Money Buy Happiness?

Ask most people these days what would make their lives better, and they reply almost instantly -  "more money". Yes, we could all do with a bit more money in the bank, I'm sure. But the big question is: does money really make you happy?

Well, I think you only need look at those celebrities who definitely aren't hurting for cash (or fame), but who fall into a series of bad relationships, strange cults and unwise investments, or visit a third world country and see how happily the children play together, to see that having money doesn't automatically make you happy and being poor doesn't throw everyone into depression. But those celebrities, you think, are just foolish. You would know what to do with all that money, right?
