 40 Pct Americans Prefer Fatter Wallets Over Slimmer Waists or Better Looks
If you has one wish, what would it be? Youth, good looks, money or (more) intelligence? A recent survey shows that the popular American choice, with four in ten claiming it, is a fatter wallet over a slimmer waist, younger age or a smarter brain.

According to the New York Daily News, another 12 percent in the Adweek Media/Harris Poll survey of 2,163 adults said they would prefer to be younger. The remaining 9 percent opted to stay the same.

But there were big differences when it came to men and women.

Age seemed to count big on the women's list than it did on men's. Among men, just 14 percent chose thinner - while 29 percent of women said they'd prefer to lose weight.

However, just 8 percent women said they would choose younger, compared with 16 percent of the men.

People aged 35 to 44 seemed to prefer wealth over everything else, and those between 18 and 34 chose brains as their top choice.
