    He’s an exception to the rule. I bet most extremely wealthy people don’t see a significant difference between giving it away and just losing it. Either way they don’t have it any more.

    Half may never know just how much they have. The other half may not even care. Therefore giving it away or loosing it doesn’t really matter now because they never knew how much they had to begin with. Right?
