What do you think?

I can't decide if I agree with this saying or not.

More money, more problems?

    I disagree...

    I know both wealthy and poor people and they both have problems, albeit different types of problems.

    I've been without money and I have been with money.
    Definitely less problems without.

      I know exactly what you mean.

      Being dirt poor royally sucks.

      I guess what I mean is... Let's say you have enough money to live comfortably... From that standpoint, more money more problems?

    I don't think there's a "one size fits all" answer. It depends on who you are and what's important to you.


    Edit: Just saw your above qualifier, and I'd still answer the same way. Some people create their own problems, more money and more time would likely mean they'd create more problems than they already do, for themselves and others.

    People of character and substance would likely become more charitable and altruistic ... probably not all, but a good many of them anyway.

    Hi! yes more many has more problem.because when you have more money then your
    exception will high and your expenditure will increase and you face different problems.
    But If you have normal Money then your exception will be low and you control your self
    when to spend it so you will try to save your money.But I think poor and Rich both have faced problem.

    I think the more money you have the more you spend and you become accustomed to living a better lifestyle. Although 'better' is probably not the right word to use as that is really a matter of what you value in life.

    As far as more money meaning more problems, I agree with Dennis, that really depends on an individual and what is important to them.

    I've noticed that some people just seem to create more expenses with more money, the result being that they're still barely breaking even.

    If you go from dirt poor to a comfortable life then not really...life is probably better. If you go from dirt poor to filthy rich then I think so.

    There are wealthy people where money is not an issue when they want a $2K watch and there are rich people where money is not an issue when they want a $2Mil house. Once you reach the latter group, life probably changes significantly.

    money makes you become more of who you already are. if you are jerk, when you have more money you become more jerk. if you are kind, when you have more money you give more to other people. Also, money can solve a lot of problem. A problem is a true problem when even money cannot solve it.

    It's not how many problems you have but how you respond to them. What one person
    sees as an unsolvable problem, another sees as a fun challenge, or a mere nuisance, or
    an everyday trivial activity. Life is a series of "problems". But those happenings don't
    have to be "problems", they can be anything that people take them for.

    I agree because the more you have the more you want. So, you are never happy.
