But Will It Make You Happy?

Happiness...its what everyone wants, but precious few can define. Happiness includes emotion, but it is far more than that. This is where most current discussion of happiness goes astray.

For example, "BEFORE credit cards and cellphones enabled consumers to have almost anything they wanted at any time, the experience of shopping was richer, says Ms. Liebmann of WSL Strategic Retail. “You saved for it, you anticipated it,” she says. In other words, waiting for something and working hard to get it made it feel more valuable and more stimulating."

Very true. The fact that our money is more convenient not only detracts from the "shopping" experience, but I believe it also causes us to spend more money and, in turn, create more stress.
