How much money do people want to achieve their ideal life? Our research gave a surprising result

You can't purchase happiness with money. We've all heard this at some point in our lives, yet even the wealthiest among us seem to be driven by a desire for more.

How much money do we individually need to fulfill our desires is the question.

Scarcity, a fundamental economic idea, is frequently used by economists to represent people as having limitless economic desires but few resources with which to satiate them.

This concept is frequently given as a fundamental truth about human nature.

Instead, according to our recently released research, only a small percentage of people genuinely have unlimited demands, and the majority of people would be content with a modest but nonetheless sizable amount of money.

Over 8,000 people responded to our survey on this topic, which we conducted in 33 nations across all inhabited continents.

We asked participants to picture their "totally ideal life," without considering whether it was really possible, so order to help them focus on what it would mean to have all of their wants fulfilled.
