    What would you do with your money if you were filthy rich?

    Don't worry about being selfish! We are going to assume that the first thing everyone would do is donate a large sum to charity.

    I can safely say that the moniker of being "filthy rich" means that you despise excess wealth and hope that some innocent will gladly slip on that "banana".

    Where does wealth come from in the first place? No one can despise that human trait, the "desire to be a success" gene, can they? Unless it's a specific criminal one. Was that the filthy you meant, I wonder? Are we construing the definition of wealth too narrowly here for an intelligent answer or debate?

    Why do you assume everyone will give to charity? Some countries don't allow it, and don't allow charities. Germany has very specific laws on charities, and restricts them largely. Charity is itself subjective. Are you laying down a challenge here, perhaps? Is charity the heart of this matter? Not wealth?

    The addendum part to the question is something I find off-putting. It could be worded better.

    First, I would save most of it for the future and my children. Second, I would give some to various charities that need it the most. Last, I would use it to travel the world.

    If I ever become "filthy rich," I will give away almost all of my money. I will just keep enough to purchase myself an annuity that would pay out $50,000 the first year -- and after that, the annual pay out would increase by 10% over that of the previous year.

    I will feed the hungry, create a scholarship program, pay the unpaid medical bills of poor patients, and build livelihood programs.

    Giving away all your money will immediately make you filthy poor, and as a result, you wouldn't be able to help more after that.
    Manage your money. Learn how to multiply it, and make helping in charities, and education be the inspiration. The more money you make, the more help you could give.
    This is not about being greedy. This is about helping endlessly.
