No, but it certainly can prevent many causes of unhappiness.

Would it absolutely definitely make me happy to never have to worry about paying for necessities, perhaps about maybe losing my job sometime?

No, but it sure as hell would help.

Would it absolutely definitely make me happy to be able to live freely rather than be required to give up much of my waking life to work?

No, but it sure as hell would help.

Would it absolute definitely make me happy to be able to buy luxuries on a whim for my own entertainment, whenever I felt like it?

No, but it sure as hell would help.

Anyone who says that money can`t buy happiness can give all of their money to me and see how happy they are then.

People who say "money doesn`t buy happiness" don`t know where to shop.

I`ve experienced poverty and significant wealth. I still hang out with people from all walks of life from the homeless to multi-billionaires. Some of the happiest and most depressed can be found at both extremes, but there is a correlation between money and happiness. The trick is maintaining a gradual upward mobility of security and lifestyle and the perspective to recognise you have all you need to be happy, even if you find yourself less wealthy than you once were.

That guy`s narrated on a number of IAB videos, and I must say I agree. He`s just got such a whiny, nasal, camp voice that I can`t listen to him for long. It`s like listening to Mickey Mouse doing an impression of that girl from Clueless.

It doesn`t *buy* you happiness, no. But I`ve honestly never been in any situation where having some made it any worse.

Does money buy happiness?

No, but you can CHOOSE your own form unhappiness - and pay for it in cash.

I think your speakers are going, xelous.
My only objection is the word "similairly" at 1:16. Can we all agree that if the root word is "similar," the adverb is "similar+ly." The root doesn`t change to similair. SI-MI-LAR-LY.
