Can money buy happiness?

April 15, 2018

It's one of life's eternal questions: Can money buy happiness? Susan Spencer went searching for answers...

In 2000, fresh out of college, Cristian Hinojosa took a juicy job as an investment banker, getting paid big bucks.

"You're making six figures at 21 years old," he said. "You have a car service at your disposal. You're flying all over the world."

But was he happy? "I was miserable. I remember having the thought, 'All I'm doing is trying to make money for my clients, my bosses, and myself.' And I said, 'I don't know if I can do this anymore.'"

He stuck it out for five wretched years, then decided to chuck it, and applied for a different job ... a VERY different job.
