Good question. I think the question is subtly deceptive. Let me be the devil's advocate here, since most people believe that money cannot buy everything, which I ultimately believe. Sociologist talk about the commodification of life. What they mean by this is that our modern society tries its best to put a price tag on everything, so that we could consume it. And since the world, in many ways, is moved by money, more things are becoming commodified. Think about religion, if you give a lot of money, some say that you can buy friendship with the divine. Think about love. So many people are so moved by money that if you have it, you might be able to buy their love. I am sure that most people will disagree, but we need to realize that money does buy a lot!
