Money Can Buy Happiness

“Money can buy happiness” according to Michael Norton, an Associate Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School. In Norton’s TED Talk from Cambridge, MA in 2011, he demonstrated that when people spent money on themselves, nothing happened. But, when people spent money on other people, they got happier. Would you like to be happier?
