In my work, I see a lot of people with a whole lot of money. I'd have to say the very rich aren't a whole lot happier than the very poor, for the most part. Maybe the key is in having enough for your basic needs and a few luxuries, but not tooooo much.

In any case, the happiest people on both ends of the spectrum and in the middle seem to be the ones with the good enough parents. And oddly enough as well, the happiest of the very rich children I've seen are the ones who grew up to work hard at whatever they did. They became professionals or carried on the family business in a positive energetic way.

Does that mean that happiness lies in a sense of purpose and industry? Shudder.

Of course, that's just my limited experience. Maybe I tend to see the underbelly of human nature.
