    i totally, utterly, unequivocally believe that money is the root of all problems.

    Dare diagree with me?
    How would you solve these problems if money is causing them? Get rid of money? The economy could never function without money. Citizens from poor 3rd world countries don't have much money and I don't think they are leading such wonderful lives. Would any of us trade places with someone living in Mozambique?

    It's been a very long stage. People have been using money for thousands of years. However, we may get to see a cashless society in our lifetimes. We are not too far from it right now. You can buy most things with a credit card.

    On this issue I would certainly say that materialism in western societies has is more important than it has been ever before. Hence many people might be duped into believing that materialism is the way to happiness as society is raving about it with its super rich celebrities and footballers ect but I do not think it is true. Money is an enabler, it allows you greater choice, however this greater choice does not it self leave to happiness, its the choices that you make that do.
