Money and Happiness Under the Microscope

Excelente artigo que fala da relação do ser humano com dinheiro.
Abaixo destaco um pequeno trecho.

"Tim Kasser, associate psychology professor at Knox College, and Richard Ryan of the University of Rochester have found that people who make the pursuit of money a significant goal score lower for mental health. They suffer a greater risk of depression; have more anxiety and lower self-esteem; experience more physical, behavioral, and relationship problems; and score lower on indicators testing for self-actualization and vitality (or feeling alive and vigorous). The findings were similar across different countries, income levels, and age groups."
