In some cases money certainly can buy happiness. But that depends how you look at it. I think sharing with people you care about is a huge happiness. I find joy in buying my kid things he loves, and the smiles and excitement I see exuded from him brings me my reward. So like I said, it's all in the way you perceive happiness and money. Money can make you or break you. Sadly our lives revolve around it in one way or another. :)) But I do get the concept of these things, so I'm not saying it's wrong.
