On today’s episode of The Personal Finance Hour, I joined Jim from Bargaineering to discuss the relationship between money and happiness. Will more money make you happier? Are we happy when we get the things we want? Does happiness have a genetic set-point? And just what can we do to make ourselves more fulfilled?

Our discussion — which included calls from Neal and Baker — covered some of the material from my review of Happier by Tal Ben-Shahar, but also delved deep into the things I’ve learned while conducting research for the first chapter of my upcoming book.
