The very poor people who have never seen wealth, like African tribes poor, may be happy.

Try telling people who live in the Bronx that they will be more happy poor than rich. Seeing my Mustang makes me happy. Wearing an expensive leather jacket makes me happy. Having Michael Jordan's jersey that he played in his last NBA Finals game, and signed by all the starters and Phil Jackson, makes me happy. Listening to music on my iPod makes me happy. Shooting a handmade rifle makes me happy.

Money means happiness, especially for those who are not born into wealth and always had their way. Old money people, they are the depressed ones.

Not really, most people work hard for their fortune.. HOWEVER i do dislike the rich who waste their cash on items that are going to go pretty much un-used after being bought.. while the same amount of $$ could make so many poor and needy people and animals happy.

Making animals happy? Dude, the world has enough problems as it is...

But define unnecessary. Like a solid gold toilet? Or do you mean something that is extravagent, but used often, like a Mercedes or Rolls-Royce?

Sorry for doubleposting but i had to quote this for truth. This is very true.. people like the african/south american tribes are happy without money.. because from their point of view they dont need it.. Poor people in more "civelised" area's are going to be MUCH happier with, then without money to spare.

I have a guy in my class that's über rich, and I can't say that I'm jealous of him. Do I admire him? Hell no! He hasn't lifted a finger for that money. I do admire those that have worked for thier wealth, like Ingvar Kamprad or Bill Gates. My family is like the avarage joe I guess, not poor, not rich, and I'm perfectly satisfied with my life. But ofcourse I would want more money, who wouldn't? ;) (I know I kinda contradicted myself there, but meh :p you understand what I mean).

I think e.g. Dönitz and Mast3rofPuppets put it well, I'm not jealous of people with money, but I wouldn't say no to more of it. Going to the market without checking every single price could be cool, of course if still being able to have a semi-uptodate computer and something looking like a car. However I'm pretty sure I'll get an acceptable income in the future, if this would be a permanent situation I probably would be a bit depressed. (Seen as there is quite a few years until I'm getting out of university, my opinion might change.)

A solid gold toilet would be the ultimate waste of money and gold, if anyone bought one they pretty much should get their property confiscated because of dangerous stupidity.

Nope. I'm happily broke. If I run low on food, I go out and shoot some hairy critter.

Sometimes I am. I'm very content with my family's current status, but to hear about my dad's boss with 6 Ferarris, gets employees tickets to the preview of Star Wars, and rents out entire game arcades...thats pretty damn nice.

Six Ferraris? Damn man, what company does he work for. A friend and client of my father's owns the second largest advirtising firm in North America, and he only owns four Ferraris.
