Money/wealth buys power not happiness......
People dont realise the satisfaction of a job, any job which has been done well.
Who needs more than two or three suits? you can only wear one at a time .....
A small car, or even a bike will get you to where you want to go, a 4x4 gas guzzler
is not a necessity.
No one needs a yacht, you can go on a cruise (if you work for it?)
Money will not let you live longer than healthy living?
Then when you die who ever gets your money that you killed yourself for will only

I can't agree with you, a clothes designer killed herself recently in New York, this lady was minted... Sold her business a few years ago for billions.
Yet she isn't with us anymore, money doesn't buy happiness or well-being, not necessarily.

So you are saying that we are just as screwed up as a human race as we were 100 years ago? That the only reason this feels different is because it is being reported on more and in greater detail?
So all of the stories of general dissatisfaction with life and personal discontentment is just in our heads? If pharmaceuticals were available back then, people would be abusing/hooked on them at the same percentage as we are today?
This is all an awareness issue? We are not worse off today compared to yesteryear?
