More than likely you'll be buying platitudes, and those are worthless.

Go back and read my original post, specifically, " Ignoring that the power of money, is that it allows you to make more money really fast". What I was saying is, ignoring the fact that you can use 1b to do all kinds of shit mere mortals like I can't (ie, do way, way better things than hopefully marginally beat inflation by putting it in a savings account..)

Yep, I'm aware of that, Just trying to say that at a SUPER conservative rate (if he just plunked it into a savings account.. doesn't really get more conservative than that..) A real billionaires time is worth 6k+ per hour. More than that if you don't value the hours that you sleep.
Why would a legitimate billionaire whose time is worth $6k+ per hour, sit through a lunch with this guy for $2.5k when their time personally is worth so much more than that.

Going beyond the fact that humans are not rational economic agents and that it is for charity are you seriously positing that the billionaire in question cannot both get his 6K investment money PLUS an additional 2.5K from the meal? Will his bankfund/own fucking company stop sending him money if he stops watching tv and eating potato chips and gets out of the house? Did you go to retarded logic school? Should he stop shaving, I mean he could make $500. Maybe that's why Branson (izzat his name?) looks like a hippie.


eddie: don't go unless you can meet a bunch of peeps involved in the charity world and not just this guy. You'll also note that most people have remarkbly little insight to offer into what they do so that's another minus

It seems obvious to me that as a start-up that $2.5k should be spent on ergonomic chairs and business cards. These are the vital ingredients of any new business.

Don't give up! Don't let the dream breakers get to you!

And remember, always, always spinning toward freeedom!

This was my thought. There have to be better places for the owner of a startup to spend $2.5k.

It's a good thing you can do arithmetic, because your reading comprehension is utter shit.

Are the New York Loew's billionaires? I know the Arizona branch of the family and while they're certainly well off, I didn't think they were that wealthy.

Oh, I didn't realize he meant a member of the Tisch family. I know who they are.

However, there are several members of the actual Loew's family still who live in Southern Arizona. They are the descendants of Marcus Loew and Adolph Zukor who started Loews Corporationm, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) and Paramount Pictures back in the early 1900's. The Tisch Family didn't buy Loew's from MGM until 1960.
