What would YOU do with a half a billion dollars or half of that after taxes ?
The lottery has said that this week the winnings will be a half a billion dollars, if won, before taxes. WOW!!! What could you and what would YOU spend this amount on? How long would it take for you to spend it, or could you ?
Boy!That is a great question
I would at least give some to charity
There are too many folks living in poverty.
How terrible is that?
The younger children are the ones that suffer, they don't realize it .
Older school age children know what is is like, because they see other children everyday.
I then would pay off the bills.
Buy a truck for my hubby as he had one a few years ago and it was so old and rusty I was too proud to even ride in it.There is always something we would love to buy
I certainly would not even give it a thought.
I would invest it.
But what a thrill it would be to win.
First I will never put a penny in buying a lottery. As per Islam it is prohibited. Even after not buying lottery, if I get I will do following. I will create an endowment and put all money into it. Divide it into three equal parts, Invest first part into ethical investment and with second part build one age old home and orphanage and home for destitute and homeless. The third will be invested to generate regular income to run orphanage and all other projects. The shortfall will be completed from income of first investment, all remaining profits will be invested back to generate more profits. This way I will increase help for those who do not afford the capitalist economy.
I will never take a penny from the lottery or for my efforts in establishing and endowment and making it up and running.
I wouldn't spend all of it. Pay off my husbands vehicle, trade my car for a new one, have a house designed, watch my dream house be built, furnish the house, finish my bachelor's, pay for my master's, continue working, put a decent amount in the stock market, and save most of it.

If you won a couple billion dollars, what social or political issue would you try to solve?And how would you go about doing this?

Warren Buffet personally benefited from the bailouts, so of course he wants the rich to pay more in taxes (he gets the money, and they're his competition).Also, he DOES pay more in taxes than his secretary -- in fact,...
