    I love Stephen Colbert but sometimes I get ticked when he asks one of his guests "How are you doing in these trying times?" and the guest responds, "I'm trying to maintain my sanity and soldier on" or some such.

This is a common misperception that wealth equates to happiness and a lack of problems. Studies show that wealth above a certain middle class level (around a $75,000 salary) has little effect on how happy you are.

Not quite sure those studies are valid.

Money may not buy happiness...but it sure buys a lot of lack of misery.

I'd be much happier with #75mil/yr than $75,000. The issue is more likely in HOW you earned it and HOW you get to spend it.

Sure your forms of stress may change but there is a lot less of stress for all life security. Money opens up more options...it just does.

A lot of studies say money doesn't buy happiness...but no one...almost no one would not be happier having more.
