Money is not omnipotent. This is Buddha had said long ago. But now it has been proven so more and more clearly. The data above evidently show that our sense of happiness did not come from material prosperity.
Everyone is seeking a happy life, yet all seems to be experiencing unhappiness of one kind or another. More and more people realize that having more money and possessions is not guaranty for more happiness. This truth has been well elucidated in the Buddhist texts, which the economists and psychologists in the West only found out now.
