I think a minimum of money is required to live correctly but money cannot buy happiness. Money can be donated to charities which helps people to live better.
Happiness is not a consequence. Happiness is a mindset cultivated towards a big goal. Money can help to hire freelancers to reach a goal.
No I don't think money can buy happiness. I am aiming for long-term contentment rather than happiness, which is often short-term. Agreed that a minimum of money is necessary for living comfort, but the richness of relationships, life experiences and a peaceful mindset lead to contentment
