Why Money Can Buy Happiness
People often say money doesn’t buy happiness. In most cases they’re right.
Would it really hurt to be rich?
Some might argue that it does, that greed corrupts the rich and as a result would prevent happiness. And this is often found to be true. However, through various studies, it has been concluded that people truly feel happy when helping others out. In the book The Count of Monte Cristo, the main character is shown to be happy as a result of helping a friend with financial issues. Using this rational, it makes sense that those that are wealthy often become philanthropists. This specific group of people are often found to be the happiest people in the world.
