I can agree with the general ‘money doesn’t buy happiness’. But the study has a pretty glaring flaw. They followed ONLY Harvard graduates. That’s a pretty obvious problem with a study that’s supposed to be applicable to the human race in general, right? That’s a pretty elite, specific demographic. Tell this to the average 9-5 blue collar guy who simply lacks the mental capabilities that a Harvard grad has, he may disagree. #1stworldproblems[/quote]
I had a similar response typed up but deleted it for the simple fact that if this flaw requires explanation, it won’t register to the people who require it.
It’s like talking to a buddy of mine. He’s a trust fund kid. Never worked a day in his life and wants for nothing. He’s rattling on one night about not getting as much as he wanted for selling his condo in Miami. His financial manager is an asshole and yadda yadda yadda.
I had to interrupt him for a moment to tell him that I had lost my job that week. With a mortgage payment due and a sick 4month old who was just in the hospital with a flu, so please pardon me for NOT GIVING A FUCK about the sale price of his condo.
Result- Blank stare.
