It seems that it was more related to a hectic life, and I think you would have had a more hectic life in the Bay area than you would have in Hawaii or China regardless of your financial circumstances. I think your post was interesting, but I'm just not convinced that happiness has an inverse relationship to money; in fact, I would say the opposite is true. I have found that I am able to do more enjoyable things when I have money and don't have to worry about paying the bills. In that way, I think the more money one has, the happier he is. I certainly don't think money can buy happiness, but a good argument could be made that it is a prerequisite to happiness to have enough money.

I wanted to mention that Timothy Ferriss, in his book "4-Hour Work Week" pointed out the concept of New Rich. His point was that even if you had a lot of money, if your life is tied down and if you don't have opportunities to enjoy the fruits of the resources you have, then you are actually not richer than people who make less money but have time to use it. Richness is not the total sum of income but more about how productive you are per hour, and how freely you can use it. I'd like to say that on the whole there were many bits of the book I didn't relate to or agree with, but he did have some points that I thought was insightful. This was one of them. Enjoy your writing -- keep it up! ari Hello, first-time poster here.
