Money is only a sign post regarding status, which is very important in evolutionary biology.

I came across a study that found that, while the alpha males were fighting for dominance, the wilier of the coyotes were slipping in and putting it to the females, kind of putting the kibosh to the old theory of the dominant male passing on his DNA only.

The money being a signpost of status, of course it can be, but my observation shows money as status as perhaps 50% of the reasons I see people obsessively chasing money
