Many disagree for good reason: There are things money can’t buy.
It appears generally true that lack of money is the root of all evil. So logically do we say that with money it can solve all problems? Not quite so.
Seems that the world is not quite as simple as computers' logic of true and false. Shades of grey.
My personal opinion is that money is the one of the most important things in life. With it you can get reputation, power, and friends because you will have influence. Without it you are nothing.
