Money Makes Your World Go Around

This just in- money buys happiness.

Money can buy happiness, but only if you spend it on someone else, researchers reported on Thursday. Spending as little as $5 a day on someone else could significantly boost happiness, the team at the University of British Columbia and Harvard Business School found.

We wanted to test our theory that how people spend their money is at least as important as how much money they earn,” said Elizabeth Dunn, a psychologist at the University of British Columbia.

Regardless of how much income each person made, those who spent money on others reported greater happiness, while those who spent more on themselves did not,” Dunn said in a statement.

Oh really?…..hmmm…
I spent tens of thousands of dollars on my ex-wife and I was miserable!
