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.

USA does not provide healthcare. I am in a good group with my employer contributing and pay I $6,000 per year. $10,000 when I was paying for my two children. Some people pay more.
.
I pay $8,000 in income tax to the USA and $2,000 to NY state. Property and school tax on a very cheap, 100 year old house is $6,000. Sales tax is 8% on all purchases except essential food items. Gas tax is $0.50/ gallon.
.
I must wait to receive social security payments until age 68 to get a better amount. And it is really just giving back what I have paid in over my career. If it is still solvent 10 years from now.
.
k-12 education is free and generally accessible to all and the schools in NY are excellent. Students may study bio/ chem/ physics/ algebra/ geometry/ trig/ calculus, if they choose. But still very little computer programming or cad is available. Secondary education is a highly privatized big busniness with costs of attendance running at about $60,000/ year. Student loans are the biggest rip off charging 6%.

The way I see it everyone should have complete freedom about how to spend their money on their wants, but have access to bare needs no matter what. Like basic education, healthcare, anything you need to stay alive and functional.

Some people make bad choices when it comes down to money, which is bad enough when it only matters themselves - but for those who are dependent on them, like children, the elderly of impaired it is quite another matter.
Having the community provide basic needs prevents a lot of trouble.

But the point I wanted to stress is that it isn't about money, but the choices one makes.
Or as one comedian over here stated: "Money alone does not make you happy. That's why I own a big yacht..."

The only climate data that even approachs that sample size is either manipulated to show the desired outcome or thrown out because it doesn't fit the narrative or can't be manipulated.
You have to admit that looks pretty suspicious.
What on Earth are you talking about? And please be specific.With references.

The errors were initially spotted by scientist Nic Lewis, who called them “serious (but surely inadvertent) errors.”

I guess their peer review is if it sounds good we will go along with it.
What's the problem Mr. Perfection?

Now they are acting like it's the hottest thing since the sun.

The global warming belivers are just freaking out because their predictions are failing faster than Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez in a math class.
