Bank error makes restaurant manager the world's first ever trillionaire (and he even offered to pay off the national debt before the glitch was spotted)

@tsarstepan,
I 'd also fund the political campaigns
of libertarian anti-liberal candidates for public office.

I'd probably pay some bills and replace our carpet.

@Brandon9000,
My carpets still good, except there's a place where it's buckled up a little.

I'd get someone out to look at it, and give an estimate has to the cost to stretch it out and retack it.

I guess if I suddenly came in to that much money, the first thing I'd do is take my wife out to the Olive Garden to celebrate. Then I'd probably take a week off from work and just sleep in every day.

PS: Glad your husband is doing so much better.

I would buy stocks from some big companies in order get control over them and inflect their policies.

I would then change their business model as to introduce some ethics in order protect low wages employees.

I'm sure I'd find CEOs that would like to work for me for much lower salaries than those of Trump and his ilk.

My experience tells me that your presumption is totally false.

I've seen cases where CEOs with crazy salaries completely failed to deliver what they were paid for.

On the other hand, I also witnessed that ethical CEOs can be as efficient as non-ethical ones.

If thay undervalue their services,
then thay r not very bright. Presumably, stupid CEOs
can be acquired at lower salaries.

@OmSigDAVID,
Certainly not.

Ethics and intelligence are not measured by the amount of money CEOs are paid.

@timur,
The amount of money that CEOs are paid
shud be measured by the amount of intelligence
that thay have demonstrated on-the-job for the stockholders.
