Wealth does solved our problems on the surface. It solves what is needed to be solved as a quick solution a quick fix. Like how most of us solve our problems however these method are temporary. Just to put the problem at bay until it manifest again. In this degenerate era, we are condition to think that wealth is the way out. We are brought up by our parents with the saying goes like this: Study hard get good results and land yourself a good job. With a good job we have good salary and lead a comfortable life. Yes it is comfortable on the physical level. From very young our parents instilled that in our head. We grew up thinking exactly like that and that is the only way we know. However when we look at around us, so much pain anf suffering and that's we are thought to do. The vicious cycle begins. We go through what our parents has gone through and that is using wealth to solve our problem and the results in the end of the day is negative.

I dont really think that wealth can solve all of our problems. It may make things easier for us at the short term, which is why we need wealth anyway because everything in samsara is based on wealth and needs wealth to actually move, you cant build a house with your bare hands anymore, you have to purchase the actual house itself these days unless you choose not to stay in a place with people. But money bringing happiness? Not really. It just makes things convenient to acquire. Happiness is a state of mind. Money can only bring satisfaction that is temporary, but ultimately, the mind must depend on itself to be truly happy.
