Can Money Buy Happiness?

Posted By Jim On 01/24/2009 @ 8:00 am In Personal Finance | 13 Comments

For those of you who follow me on Twitter [3], you probably saw me mention earlier this week that I could lose days watching all the great videos on TED.com. That’s where I found the informative and entertaining video about Chinese American food [4] and where I found this talk by Benjamin Wallace [5], a writer for plenty of entertaining magazines like GQ, Details, Food & Wine, etc. and recently published a book titled The Billionaire’s Vinegar: The Mystery of the World’s Most Expensive Bottle of Wine [6].

The video is that of Wallace talking about how he decided he’d seek out and try all the world’s most expensive things, from Kobe beef to ridiculously expensive golf clubs, from fancy olive oil to a $65,000 bed, and even the Veyron 16.4 [7] ($1.5 million). Well worth the fifteen minutes.

Expensive doesn’t always mean better.

What are you thoughts on this?
