Anyone who thinks money can’t buy happiness is not spending it right. Two rising stars in behavioral science explain how money can buy happiness. Happy Money offers a tour of new research on the science of spending. Most people recognize that they need professional advice on how to earn, save and invest their money. When it comes to spending that money, most people just follow their intuition. But scientific research shows that those intuitions are often wrong. Happy Money explains why one can get more happiness for one’s money by following five principles, from choosing experiences over stuff to spending money on others. And the five principles can be used not only by individuals but by companies seeking to create happier employees and provide “happier products” to their customers.
