I don't think money really makes people happy. Money can help solve certain problems though

You all seem to be missing the point of a two option question. Money and happiness are not mutually exclusive and everyone knows that. The question is, if you could only have one, which would you choose? Saying money would make you happy is a non-answer.

I would choose money over happiness. Common happiness and despondency follow one another. Money can't buy happiness but it can surely satisfy one's most basic needs . If all people wanted was just happiness there wouldn't be so much striving for material possessions. Think it over... On the surface level it seems an irony to conceive, but it is the fact

being rich and not happy, its not the fault of money!
I have also seen many people who are rich and happy.
being happy depends upon you.
I would choose money coz being rich is difficult but being happy is very easy.

Of course money can't bring happiness but surely money can make you take the flying lessons which surely makes you happy...

Which is the purpose of having money? If happiness is the reason for having money, why won't you obtain happiness directly? Choosing happiness is more efficient and more stable (considering the fact that of you're rich you're not necesaarly happy.)!

I would choose happiness over money, because if someone was rich, they may not necessarily be happy. Even though the person may be able to buy their material possessions, it's only temporary happiness. I mean, let's face it, people just want more and more.
Surrounding yourself with people who makes you happy is better than having money. Would you rather live rich, but all alone or hardly have any money, but be surrounded with the people who you love and love you too.

I think that happyness is the best thing on the world. You go out and see the people laught, that is realy happyness.
If you have money and are sad what do you want to do with the money?
I would take happyness and not money

Money can give you happiness. You buy food, water, and things such as TV, video games, toys, things to make you happy. I'm missing a key point I think, but I'll leave my argument here.

true happiness is being in heaven with God. it is impossible to be truly happy on Earth. Jesus says that it is difficult for a rich man to go to heaven. So choose things that will lead you to heaven over money.

I would not chose happiness over money because first their is no such thing as an actual happy person or they would not be human at all. it takes a human a lot of energy just being happy soon trying to or being to happy will hit its depressive states as a human we Stive for more and want what we can't have. life is what one makes it now what I can say is being content or accepting of things is the true form of happiness.
