Can money buy happiness?
  • Reuter 9/8/2010 survey Can money really make
    you happy? Not really, but up to about 75,000 a
    year can ease the pain of life's stresses, U.S.
    researchers reported on Tuesday.
  • "Perhaps 75,000 is a threshold beyond which
    further increases in income no longer improve
    individuals' ability to do what matters most to
    their emotional well-being, such as spending time
    with people they like, avoiding pain and disease,
    and enjoying leisure.
