Topic: Wealth and Happiness in Sense and Sensibility

In Sense and Sensibility, consider Marianne’s and Elinor’s conversation (Vol 1, Ch 17):

     “What have wealth or grandeur to do with happiness?”      
     “Grandeur has but little,” said Elinor, “but wealth has much to do with it.”

How are wealth and happiness related in Sense and Sensibility?
