An old cliché says time is money. A newer cliché, from Oliver Stone, says money never sleeps — which is essentially the same assessment as the older one. But why are we pretending there's a contest here? We like what money can buy, but virtually all the research on what makes people happy shows that time matters more than money — not only in the long term but also in the short term. Now a new study shows that time matters more than money even when you live below the poverty line.

  一句舊的陳詞說時間就是金錢。而Oliver Stone所說的新的迂腐的話金錢永不眠——這本質上跟那句舊話評價一樣。但是為什么我們總假裝其中有爭議呢?我們喜歡錢能買東西,但事實上,所有有關什么讓人高興的研究表明,時間比金錢更重要——不僅從長遠而且從短期看來。如今一項新的研究表明即使你生活水平非常地下,時間也比金錢更重要。

  The new paper, which was published by the Association for Psychological Science and written by a young Wharton School instructor, Cassie Mogilner, begins by reminding us that older studies have found a weak relationship between wealth and happiness.

  由沃爾頓商學院一個年輕的教師Cassie Mogilner所寫并發表在《心理科學協會》的新論文一開始提醒我們,以往的研究發現財富與幸福之間沒有多大關系。

  Then Mogilner notes that although Europe consistently performs worse economically than the U.S., the E.U. consistently performs better in surveys on happiness.


  As Mogilner writes:


  "Work is necessary to pay the bill and contributes to an individual's sense of productivity and self-esteem, but the number of hours Americans spend working frequently exceeds that required to provide these benefits."


  Money is all about utility: it is survival. But time is about emotional investment. In psychological studies of why people donate to charity, the mere mention of money makes people less likely to help. If you ask people to donate time, they may not do it — but they don't become more stingy.


  Mogilner found that these same findings held among a population of 76 people who met the 2009 definition for poverty set by the federal government. Which is remarkable: if you qualify for the federal definition of poverty, you almost certainly worry about making sure your family can eat every day. But even then, most people time to be more valuable than money.


  One flaw in the study is that it may not consider the middle class: if you are very rich or very poor, money may be less valuable than when every bill just balances every month. Money, in that case, can be harmony: a perfect bill-balancing act. Time — well, that's what weekends are for.
