Resource description

The objective of this article is to explore the role money plays in our lives. First, I touch on the symbolic role of money, especially as it relates to developmental forces such as rivalry, competitiveness, envy, greed, and love. Then, I contend that the mindless pursuit of money contributes to a mortgaged life. In this context, I explore the relationship between money and health, and money and happiness. Finally, I discuss ways that the money conundrum can be made more manageable. What can be done about managing our needs? And if wealth has been acquired, what is the most appropriate way to deal with it?
