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.
