Can Wealth Bring Happiness?

财富能够带来幸福吗?

Wealth and happiness always have countless ties. On the one hand, wealth can satisfy our material desires and therefore sometimes meet our spiritual needs. On the other hand, wealth can also bury our heads in thesand and bring misfortune to us at times. It’s really hard to answer the age-old question “Can wealth bring happiness?”

财富和幸福有着不解之缘。一方面,财富能够满足人们对物质的满足,有时也能够满足人们在精神上的需求。另一方面,财富有时也能够让我们躲避现实,并给我们带来不幸。我们很难对这一老生常谈的话题做出回答,即财富能够带来幸福吗?

In my point of view, I don’t agree that wealth can bring happiness. I conceive of the two as not absolutely related. Happiness is not something that can be measured by wealth, but by the state of mind. For one thing, we all know that the world’s wealth has soared during the twentieth century, and economists expect it to continue rising in the decades ahead. Does that mean that we humans are happier than our ancestors? I’m afraid the answer must be “no” or “it depends”.

我认为财富无法带来幸福。我认为两者没有直接的关联。幸福无法用财富来衡量,而是人们的心境。一方面来讲,众所周知,全球的财富在20世纪发生了巨大的增长,经济学家认为经济也将在未来的10年里继续增长。这是否意味着我们比前人更加幸福?我认为不会,或者是不确定。

Whether we are happy or not is determined by our state of mind. Wealth can buy us some material things butcannot free us from sadness or worries. For another, wealth can not bring happiness, neither can poverty. It’s a mistake to assume that wealth will affect everyone in the same way. Being rich or poor, people make choices about how they treat wealth, and those choices can boost happiness or undermine happiness.

不管我们是幸福还是不幸福,这都是由人们的心境来决定的。财富能够为我们带来物质事物,但是无法让我们躲避悲伤和担心。另一方面,财富无法带来幸福,贫穷更不会。财富影响人们的程度是一样的,这是个错误的想法。不管是富有还是贫穷,人们对待的财富有不同的方式,这些方式能够让我们更加幸福,也能让我们悲伤。

All in all, the amount of wealth doesn’t represent the degree of happiness. Happiness can’t be weighed by wealth. It has no absolute relation to wealth, but as a kind of feeling in our hearts it only rests withour own mind.

总之,财富不能够代表你幸福的指数。幸福无法用财富来衡量。幸福与财富没有绝对的关系,但是作为一种心态,它只存在于人们的心中。
