The very act of chasing after riches is commonly seen as a desirable and honorable pursuit, as it’s supposed to make us happy. But what do the Stoics think about this and how do they view money?
According to the Stoics, your mental state contributes far more to your happiness than wealth (which we knew already).
For instance, the Stoic philosopher Musonius stated that money won't soothe our sorrows. As evidence, he simply noted that our world is full of wealthy, yet wretched people. He didn’t stop there, however – he went a step further to claim that money can in fact make us miserable.
