The pursuit of happiness

I know an awful lot of miserable rich people. So while money can buy you some aspects of happiness, I would be very interested to see the exact relationship!

Personal Finance: The pursuit of happiness:
"'Yes, money makes you happy -- we see the effect of income on life satisfaction is very strong and virtually ubiquitous and universal around the world,' said Ed Diener, a professor emeritus of psychology at the University of Illinois who led the study. 'But it makes you more satisfied than it makes you feel good. Positive feelings are less affected by money and more affected by the things people are doing day to day.''
