    If given the chance - why would you want to become a billionaire?

    What's wrong with becoming a billionaire? What stops you from becoming one?

    I'd become a billionaire for the money.

    The thing that's stopping me (and most other people) from becoming a billionaire, is the doing of something that makes you a millionaire.  Or getting lucky by being in the right place in the right time.

    Long story short: I blame quantum mechanics.  Always stringing me along and never making me a billionaire!

    of course, you want to be a billionaire for the money $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    there is nothing wrong with becoming a billionaire, people may envy you because they're insecure, however there is no problem with it.
    obviously what stops someone from becoming a billionaire is not having the job, the resources, or the luck.
    go for the lottery tickets.

    Money gives choices. I would like the money to help some of the very poor people I have met while traveling. To provide livlihood, homes, food and more. I have seen the dead and dying in the streets. Life is very hard for some.
    My own needs are very very simple. Money begets money and if I had some I may well become a billionaire (though I would never want so much).

    I think most people at the moment would just be happy with an extra $100 never mind Billions!!!

    If I did have that kind of money I'd buy out the UK and sack Gordon Brown .....then employ Big Bird or Kermit, as they couldn't do the job any worse! yikes)

    Johnny Carson once said "Money is only good for 2 things: it's one less thing to worry about and you can help those you love".  I would want to not have to worry about paying anything again and I would want to help everyone I know and thousands of people I don't know, especially children.  I would love the opportunity to start an organization that lasts well past my expiration date...
