Is Money Happiness or Suffering? 

All that ever arises is only Dukkha...           (Including all wealth!)
All that ever ceases is also only Dukkha...    (So only pain is really lost!)
Pragmatically, conventionally and relatively seems money to have become a
both practical and necessary evil in most but not all societies. Remember in
the beginning of this universal eon we were all a shining society of radiant
devas feeding on Joy moving through space freely. Now we have decayed
to mere ever more wanting humans ...
When there is money, there is inevitably recurring bills, depts, loans...
When there is recurring bills, depts, loans, inevitably there is also worry!
When there is recurring or permanent worry, there is also frustration.
When there is frequent frustration, that is indeed mental Suffering...
Suffering is not Happiness...
A wise one said:
Those things we give emphasis to in our lives can also become our prison! 
My first inclination -if I have money- is not to lose it! Therefore it makes
me become increasingly fearful of others, or put security systems around
my home. So money may not achieve any good life, because it is simply not
true, that money can make humans ever happy!
Interestingly, it seems IMHO that Mr. Mara, Mr. Namuci, The End-maker,
The Tempter, The Evil One, have mind manipulated some otherwise good,
intelligent and faithful people to think, and even repeatedly postulate:
Money is only happiness!
Money is sole satisfaction!
Money is just ecstasy!
No bad side-effects are there ever with money! 

Well.. then.., let there be Happiness.. But not Fever.. Nor fire .. Nor Worry!
If ever possible ...
