Happiness

We know money can't buy you love, but can it buy you happiness?

And what is happiness anyway? 'Nothing more than good health and a bad memory' according to the Nobel Prize winning Dr Albert Schweitzer.

Over the past decades we've made unimagined leaps in wealth, but are we happier for it?

Well, sure money can buy us comfort, and it can buy us freedom from cares, which can make us happy. But after you've reached a certain standard of living, reasonable comfort and reasonable financial security?
