Since I'm no fun and I can't think of what I'd do if I had endless money, let's just say I suddenly got an astronomical sum, like hundreds of trillions First I'd probably devote some of it in creating a conspiracy that I never got the money, that the money doesn't exist. I wouldn't want people knowing it exists. Then I'd probably transform one of Jupiter's moons into something of a gigantic safe and chuck a few thousand billion in there so it can be a trust fund for the Earth in case the global economy totally tanks beyond all repair. If I ever had to "bail out" the Earth, the rest of the money would have to be destroyed or else the currency would be worthless - this is why it has to remain a secret. Unfortunately I don't think I'd be able to waive third world debt due to similar reasons this wouldn't work if one had endless money, devaluing currency completely would make it useless. As far as I understand it wouldn't be possible to solve major global problems if one suddenly got a huge sum of wealth. If I walked into something to the tune of a few billion, let's just say I'd never work a day in my life, I'd probably spend a lot of my time pursuing degrees and probably donating to research causes/universities. I'm not sure about having a family and I don't know what I think about creating a family fortune. I don't really like the idea of creating an aristocracy and have children that have no reason to pursue their own will - what's the point if you're born into such riches? You basically have your life set out before you. I don't want kids who are so rich they stagnate. Money can only solve certain problems, I guess. I'd donate not necessarily to charities, but to institutions that reflect my highest values, so education and the pursuit of knowledge.
