It's true. Money is new god of this cursed world. But It's not about owning things, it's about providing a comfortable life for your family, good education, good health care, good nutrition. These lead to building confident and successful children. But how you earn living is also important in determining how happy you can be. For example if you invest in high risk businesses, you are more likely to be stressed out and are always on your toes scared of losing a deal.
My best friend owns a factory producing electronic accessories for Apple, he makes nearly 1 million every month, but he's always stressed out because he has to wake up super early in the morning, run after people, chase suppliers, kiss asses to get shit done and so on. Eventually he was so depressed he sold his business and went on to open a smaller one, a pub. He makes fraction of what he used to make but now he's happy calm and cheerful.

I've known weathly people state that money didn't bring them happiness. It didn't take away their problems, it only changed them
I've also known people who are struggling financially , but yet they're happy most of the time , and content living within their means
Happiness is only a temporary emotion, not a permanent state , so money can buy you happiness, but it's never permanent. Maybe prolonged though. No one is happy 24/7 (unless they are a robot) . Regardless of whether they people are poor or rich.
Most people will have longer spells of happiness when if they are wealthy.0
