Perhaps, instead of "money can't buy happiness", you could say "it's
easier or more economical to buy other people happiness".
With $1B you could buy homes for tens of thousands of low income
families, create jobs, create social programs, etc.
I can't think of anything a billionaire could do, buy, create, etc.
for themselves that would make them just as happy as everyone they
could help with their wealth.
