Using Chapter 16 and the videos please post a discussion about benefits and downsides of materialism and wealth. Then, give your own opinions about your own life or those of others who illustrate some of these concepts. For example, I once had as clients a family that had won a lottery. Frankly, they were still living paycheck to paycheck and running out of money as they had before the lottery win--it was just bigger paychecks. Their child still had disorders that needed evaluation and treatment, about which they worried. Furthermore, numerous people came to them for handouts and put pressure on them. While they did not outright say they wished they hadn't won, it sure looked to me like their life satisfaction was not better and they were not any happier.
