To What Extent One Should Allow Money to Guide One’s Life?

However, the need for money is inevitable and many things in life seem to revolve around it.

Over the years, money has assumed several forms before taking over the shape and form of a coin or a piece of paper. Today, it has also assumed the form of plastic.

While the need for money to satisfy basic physiological essentials cannot be questioned, its role in buying happiness is debatable.
