$71,250 buys happiness in Kansas City. Study shows that money does buy happiness

Turns out you CAN put a price tag on happiness.

A new study conducted by Princeton professors found that people who make more money are happier. But here’s the catch: It only works in limited quantities. The study found the optimum happiness price tag is a salary of $75,000 — after that, people on average don’t rate themselves as being happier.

Improvements in life after the $75K mark spring from those clichés from which happiness was always said to be born: finding a pencil, pizza with sausage, and telling the time, for example.
