"Secret Fears of the Super Rich" by Graeme Wood - The Atlantic

So as it turns out money really can't buy you love or happiness, and unless you're Roman Abromovich, it won't even buy you the biggest yacht at the docks. Take it from me dude, it doesn't matter how much money you spend, someone will always be able to look down on the top deck of your yacht from the top deck of theirs. And just like the human body hasn't evolved to the point where it can effectively metabolize that 4th slice of pepperoni pizza without getting fat, the human mind will not be satisfied by a simple excess of funds. So relax Stanley Striver, some of the best thing in life really are free.
