Other answer:

Kris:
to but it sure makes things easier to be happier with money…
Rachel:

thegreatone:
Yes.

In fact, you have to have money to be alive. Literally. No money means no food. No food means you die.

roderick_young:
In theory, actual money is not necessary for happiness. There are happy toddlers who don't even know what money is.

Do I personally need money for happiness? I don't know for sure, because I have never been completely without money. Twice in my life, I had to restrict myself to basic foods like rice and beans when I ran low on money, but even in those cases, I knew I could call my parents if even the dried beans ran out. There was never fear of permanently having to eat beans and walk or bike everywhere.
