With the red pill one would be happy but what will motivate a happy person? I'd imagine not much. I suppose someone would be happy watching Cramer 24/7. Now regarding the money. On a scale of 1-10 of being happy. Having money would bring you to zero. Money x's out the negatives. We probably live the money part of our lives in the negative on the scale of happiness. Somewhere around -3 or -1 or whatever. having money will bring us to zero on the scale. Most people would probably need the pill and money or as the other poster mentioned, neither. Now suppose you controlled the pill and the money, that might make some people very happy.
