Preface 序 "$" has always been an attractive sign to many of us, especially in Hong Kong, a materialistic small urban place. It could be a core value of HK people. Yet, the money philosophy of everyone has a different value on their minds. For example: to investigate the relationship among happiness, satisfaction and money. Also to take a journey to see “money” in other aspect e.g music and art, how these aspects portray money. What $ can and can't do? How does it come from? How important is it? Does everyone have a price? Does wealth equal to success? How much money is to be considered "much"? Is it realistic or just conceptual? To discuss “Money vs. Ethic” with audience, trigger an invitatory experience to think and re-think what “money” is on their mind. "$"對香港人都可以說得上是吸引的符號,甚至對某些人特別敏感。不過,每一個人隨著不同的生活質素與經 歷,對錢的看法都會抱著不同的態度及價值觀:有些人很寒暄,有些人卻是「大花筒」…究竟擁有多少金錢 才稱得上滿足呢?金錢對現代生活有多重要?每個人都有個價嗎?有錢等於有成就嗎?錢是現實?是概念? 還是有其他意義呢?道德與金錢的平衡又應該是如何?相信每個人都會有不同的答案。不妨看看此書會否啟 發到您對金錢的思考、反思,亦可與您身邊的人討論一番。而最重要是能夠帶出物質主義與消費主義對我們 的影響,從而使我們對物質與金錢的存在和意義重新思量,別要讓自己成為金錢的奴隸。

Not quite. It sure can make your life easier but true happiness. Happiness, is the state of your mind. In fact, what usually happens is more like the other way around: if you are rich and happy from the inside, you will then be able to attract more money on the outside. 不是必然的。 金錢縱然可以令你生活過得好一點,但並未能為你帶來真正的快樂。 快樂是來至精神、心靈的,不可以和金錢掛上必然的關係。 其實,大家可以想像一下,如果一個人的內心感到快樂、富足的話, 就有更有能力去獲得外在的財富!

It often relates to

Consumerism, which suggests that personal happiness are from the

consumption and purchase of material possessions. The belief that money, possessions and physical comforts are more important than spiritual value, typically happens in a capitalist society.

Materialism as a philosophy suggests that existence is explainable solely in material terms, with no accounting of spirit or consciousness. The theory or attitude that physical well-being and worldly possessions constitute the greatest goal and highest value in life.

物質主義的理論是與消費主義有關, 指一種於生命對任何
