Good Morning Sunday: Michael Norton – How to Buy Happiness

by amol238


“I don’t care too much for money, money can’t buy me love” – a line from the legendary Beatles song “Can’t buy me love” was recorded in 1964.

But the debate – “Can money by Happiness” has been ongoing for a longer time.

Are you happy when you buy things for yourself ? What happens when you buy things for others, does the happiness quotient increase or decrease ? … Money can’t buy you love, can it or make you happy?

Micheal Norton, a professor of psychology presents a very interesting experiment about how we feel when we buy and spend.

Through this interesting Ted Talk he tries to answer some of the questions on money and happiness.

Very interesting quotes from the talk,
โ€œThe specific way that you spend on other people isn’t nearly as important as the fact that you spend on other people.โ€

โ€œSpending on other people has a bigger return for you than spending on yourself.โ€

What are your thoughts, Can money buy happiness ? Are you happy when you spend on yourself or when you spend on others ? Is happiness the key to life?

Have a Happy Sunday and a great week ahead ๐Ÿ™‚

any one can buy happiness with money and for that if we really wants to do something for happiness then we should help other who really need it and then you can feel you have done something good.

Money can’t buy love, but it can buy you happiness – if you perceive that by being able to pay: your everyday necessities (food, shelter, electricity, etc), you have savings and you enough money to even spend for traveling or during vacations, and this makes you happy, then that’s it – Money can actually buy you happiness. Just don’t be a slave to money.

Slyvia, I agree with you that money can’t buy true love. But can certainly buy a lot of happiness!

I think money can buy all the necessary or the most vital things for you but the real love cannot be bought by it. You can make someone happy by providing the necessary things.
