a thought experiment on money

Recommended Posts

I heard this awesome thought experiment that made me feel a lot better. It goes like this:


You are given a hundred million bucks, straight to the hand for free. Would you take it?


Kinda obvious, yeah. You probably would.




You'd get your hundred million, but you would not wake up to see the next day. You'd only have the rest of today and that's it, you're done.


Would you still take the money? 🤔


You probably wouldn't.


How about a billion? Ten billion? A hundred billion?


Still wouldn't.


Is there any amount of money you would take, but not wake up to a new day ever again?


There probably isn't.



Wake up tomorrow knowing this is worth more than all the money in the world.



There must be an effortless way.
