I’m not sure I’d need 20 billion dollars, but I could spend 4 billion no problem. Professional sports franchise, mansion, vacation mansion, toys, starting my dream company, donating to my favorite charities, paying off all the debts of my friends and family... It would be spent before the check cleared.

Guys, we are all so poor that our dreams don´t extend beyond "a few millions". There are things out there that are really cool and cost much more. Not that I know of many, but if you want to f*king cry go here

See... confortable middle class now looks terribly boring,

it is greed.  it is a very old problem with mankind.  enough is never enough.  and the love of money can lead people to do all kinds of illegal things.

but that doesn't mean one should be lazy and not work to earn money.  we need money to pay our bills and to feed our families.  we just to learn how to be content with what we have.  all i want is to have financial freedom; debtless.   i will work my ass off until i can pay off my house and car loans and have sufficient savings for my retirement.  i will continue to do my honest work but not at the expense of my health and my family.  there are other things that are more important in life. 

however, if my crypto investment takes me to the moon, i guess that will be a bonus and i can retire early.

Honestly I can't see any reason why ANYONE would need 20$ billion dollars. It's so much freaking money when you think about it. I could probably retire off 2M @ age 30 and get by okay. There's not really any need for nice jewelry, nice cars, nice houses among other things in reality. It's just stuff we as people want, not a necessity.. yet you got multi-billionaires and multi-millionaires spending millions like it's candy when most people make 30K a year most times less.

No 1 person needs more then 1 billion dollars, like come on what could you possibly do with the 1000 million? If the rich 1% of the planet got together and donated the majority of their money around the world and the money was managed properly there would probably be no poverty, and they'd probably still have excess money.

Please help me understand the thoughts of people who actually want (for example) $20 Billion Dollars. Depending on where you live, wouldn't $5M be about enough?

"Poor man wanna be rich,
Rich man wanna be king,
And a king ain't satisfied,
'til he rules everything..." ~The Boss

Could you be happy (for example) in a comfortable middle-class life? In case you do not know, excess money can create related problems. Seriously, why would anyone want $20 Billion Dollars?
At reading some books about personal development and about millionaires, I´ve seen most of millionaires don´t work because of money. At the moment one reachs any level of wealth, they say that they just LOVE and LIKE what they do. So, when you make what you love and what it´s the passion for you the money start to arrive by itself. The thought about "this amount of money is enough for me" it just shows that kind of people work FOR MONEY and no because they love what they are doing.

5 million bucks? say the average age of the posters here is 25. that has to last 55 years maybe. fancy house, car, a few blowoff holidays and you have $2-3 million. that's $45,000 a year for life. if you can't beat inflation that'll be maybe $4-5000 per year maybe by the time you're old.

not enough.

20 billion is dumb. by that point it's no longer money, it's the score you keep.

5 million would provide a reasonable standard of living, certainly not a rich one and you might finish up badly short if you don't manage it properly.

50 million will have to do. rich to me is being able to do what i want at any time without worrying about any cost.

With such amount of money you have power to change not only your life, not only life of your family, neighbourhood, city but whole region/ country. 

Its funny to see hoow many people say that if they had the money in questions they'll not only think about themselves but about saving/changing the world. I believe this thought would not longer exist once presented with the money because just then you realize how much more you need as an individual - its just being human!

People are different, not everyone thinks the way you do, lots of people don't make a lot but they still try and make an impact on the society, trying to "save/ change the world", so if one of such persons would get $$$ why would they change their behaviour?
There is a saying that you can't buy friends - but I think there are exceptions, if you do a lot of good things for people around you, you can "buy" friendship not only from them but also from other people who see your good deeds. And a lot people want to be popular, they want to be celebrities - so by "saving the world" they are buying something, just not a material thing.
And one more thing, by "saving/ changing the world" you can still make money, for example you may do something in better way than other companies - e.g. in the fields of ecology, fair trade etc.

I only want to have huge money or to be rich only because to be free from such hectic schedule due to works and deadline of proposals and any business related things. What makes me happy is that giving a huge part of my money/income to those who are in need, and a part of it for opening unique and trendy business for my money to grow, and a little part of it for my own and my family's primary needs, and it wouldn't be used for luxuries and unimportant things. It all depends on one's mindset with handling huge amount of money over their happiness and enjoyment.

Although it could create serious problems, It all depends on one's mindset of how he/she would hand and use huge amount of money over spending it for both happiness and needs.

but in the vast majority of cases someone who's 'worth' 20 billion could never actually realise it. what do you think would happen to the amazon share price if jeff bezos decided he wanted nothing but dollars?

he'd wind up much less of a billionaire by the time he was done selling.

Bezos owns less than 20 percent of Amazon, even if he sold all his share the price wouldn't crash that much.  There are countless hedge funds waiting to buy more Amazon stock at a lower price.

He could easily have 100 billion in cash if he desired.

I think it depends on each people because we all have our own level of happiness, there are people who don’t know how to be satisfied in a way, but im sure there are a lot people who are satisfied of whatever they have now. It’s always a matter of happiness in this life.
