You'd be surprised. People don't live by logic.
But in general, if you cannot obtain your basic needs that will lead to hardship and frustration. If the community provides much of those needs (healthcare, education, social security etc) your monetary needs drop significantly.

The ability to effectively deal with the problems you perceive is strongly related to happiness, possession (in itself, other than providing a way to effectively deal with problems) not so much.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.19 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

For confirmation go to people just like you.
For education go to people unlike yourself.
