I think that economic success should be based on society as a whole, not on individuals. Money most definitely can buy some people’s happiness, others it can’t. Individuals are too unique to try and group together and base economic success on individuals. Society should define economic success. Has it eliminated poverty? Homelessness? Starvation? Everyone should have access to the basic necessities for living; housing, food, healthcare, etc. Wants and needs are different. Nobody should need anything. Wanting makes us human and we should have the means and opportunities to work towards our wants. I think economic success should be based upon the standard of living. That means for every single person. If we have people starving, homeless, living in poverty than our economy is not successful.
