I'd rather be rich than poor if only for the financial reasons.

[A]fter basic needs are met, relative rather than absolute income levels influence well-being.

This is why we should have a socio-capitalist system. Everyone should be given enough money from the gov't to have their basic needs met (food, shelter, entertainment, transportation, communication), then, whoever wants something *better* has to work. This also explains why both communism and capitalism (both in the colloquial senses) don't work and ultimately fail spectacularly.

Unfortunately, the last US Senator to seriously propose such a solution was assassinated.

Universal Basic Income should be a human right.

Marcintosh: Not only can money buy happiness, you'd be surprised just how inexpensive happiness can be.
neversubmit: Well it can't buy love. Only grinding poverty can do that!

I beg to differ.  Money can buy love, affection and, oddly enough, fidelity.

It always comes to the money part - sooner or later - no money=sooner  Lotta cash=later - how much later is in direct relationship to the amount of cash.

it's a schitty world - but it's all we've got.

Should I have put a sarcasm tag with it? No wait, think it in professor farnsworth's voice.

Anyone who says money doesn't buy happiness has never called an airport, had their airplane pulled out of the hangar onto the ramp, precooled/preheated, jumped in, flew to Jackson Hole, had a precooled/preheated rental car pull up to your airplane just as you're parking it and few minutes later enjoyed pizza and wine at Dornan's with the most incredible view in the world. Yes, money does buy happiness.

Money doesn't necessarily buy happiness, but it certainly allows you to rent it for a while
