the most expensive single family home in
the u_s_ is on the market for one hundred ninety million dollars this is a
home in greenwich connecticut and i just to give you some more
information about eighty eight’s thirteen thousand five hundred nineteen
square feet uh… it is a french renaissance that

solarium uh… wine cellar an entire floor for
staff special features include a twelve-foot at twelve point ceilings multiple card fireplaces about the knees
plus huge windows and lasting porches for taking in the panoramic long island
sound view the property straddles fifty acre spread
over two i’ll is and outdoor features include a seventy five-foot cool with
spot and cool house uh… grass tennis court stone carriage
house of and guess commies plus inflation rolling lawns and gardens unfair and they add are due to a uh… so i i love the gratuitous parts
which is the task force that have to be
grassroots was full little poem and where r probable lower growth does that make it
better to lean on president may serve as your amir prevention better when i go to the
floor said dr richer and often it the only one i have this look uses somebody’s got a hundred ninety
million dollar house ok fine right passersby for but uh… twelve bedrooms i’m not sure is enough advice about a hundred ninety million
dollars i’d want life two hundred and eighteen bedroom but have i wanna be a deferment whomever
i’m guessing that you just bedroom is a separate house you know i mean i know i’m sure they’re
large agenda i’m sure they’re identified house onto also like like a discipline on the telus my house is that i grew up in actually
had a slur uh… my mom designed it so that we would have the swim does on
top of the roof and someone come related and it was a fear risotto watching tv a
b it you know a quickie right tears others a solar africa and i didn’t know except that all right now looked at the bottom line
is people rich that somebody seven hundred ninety
million dollars sunny eighty four that uh… ite no i don’t know beef with it and it’s
obviously has fifty acres it’s a huge plot of land on the six it’s annex it’s in
inexpensive area it’s a huge property so sure you can put on the market for a
hundred ninety million visit here to get a hundred nineteen eight million
probably not usually what happens with realtors and
um… you know realestate firms is they will take a look at the costs of
take a look at other properties in the area to make a decision as to uh… what the market value of that particular
home is but in this case is you can’t do that because they’re are
no homes that are iti easy compared to this home on cell
you know to see you guys a quick example candy spelling had put her home from
mass amount mentioned on the market and asking price of one hundred fifty
million dollars well she ended up of selling it for only a tif icic only but
in this context only eighty five million dollars on because the fact that knows nearby house without let’s keep it
real yet and and it depends like if the recipient maelstrom of rich people of the same time josie over
mansions you might get lucky fade but there is at this point we four five
buyers that could possibly by valves utility in that period of time that
particular city etcetera so they have a little bit eleven said so but i’d love that and the haggling a
meat-eating socket negotiation the lawyer for a seven hundred name and
i know it’s yet what he said a million bucks israelis and help it is amazing

Huh? Are you high? Of course its "his business" and I cant force anyone to not be a money junkie.Dude,really,Im the brat..how ironic you call ME that.when the obscenely rich money junkie lets others suffer and die while he hoards an unbelievable
amount of wealth.Its people like this in control,who are a BIG part of the reason there is poverty and worse in this world.Uncontrolled greed has ALWAYS equalled many other people suffering .

I dont have a problem with charitiesI support some myself when I can :).But lets face it,the wealthiest can donate a LOT and its still nothing to them,because they have such an obscene amount.Most do it so that having such obscene wealth,the masses dont start to resent them too much.Rich man is always paranoid those scary poor people try to take his hoard.

There's a BIG BIG difference between grass courts, and those made out of clay. It's not a matter of rich/not rich, it's a matter of how the surfaces affect the tennis ball's trajectory and rebound velocity. Different strategies and methods of play are used depending on what surface you are playing on.

Of all the things to make fun of regarding this house, the courts aren't one of them.

Judging by the state of the currency and the job market, bloated military budget that will eventually burst, failing economy and a private owned government funded by a criminal banking system known as the Federal Reserve Bank, in about 10 years the USSR is going to look like Disney Land if America doesn't get their shit sorted.

I also have the wine cellar and polo grounds,

You will never be a billionaire with that kind of mentality :p

If you were a millionaire you won't be able to do it because you will then think that it takes way too big portion of your wealth

You can say you will waste money because you haven't been a millionaire – and you can never be a billionaire if you start wasting your money inefficiently as you have suggested.

Why buy an expensive luxury house for the homeless when custom building it from the start is much cheaper and affective?

Donating the use of the property to a non-profit to provide those services *could* reduce the cost of ownership while retaining the benefits of owning such an asset in the long run. However there has to be a demand for those services where the property is located.

The USSR no longer exists, but when it did they had stratification between the haves (government officials) and the have-nots (everybody else). Any opportunity to transfer from a lower level to a higher one was systematically removed.

Honestly, I feel like this house is a huge waste. Don't get me wrong, the owners probably made their money fair and square, and they are not obligated to do anything with that money other than what they want. However I like to think that, if I had as much money as these people, I would use it to start a foundation or donate to charities rather than buy the most expensive goddamn house in the country.

People that buy mansions usually wanted the mansion LONG before they became rich. But in truth its better to buy a modest house because unless you have a HUGE entourage all that space won't be put to use. If your bringing in all those people everyday to occupy that space you will spending ALOT of money daily. This is why guys like Warrern Buffet will ALWAYS have more money than say a guy like P.Diddy.

You do need that much money if you want to live like that for example, if you just want to survive you don't. Should money distribution be completely in balance, is that what we should strive for? If someone get's more then someone else, however fairly and by the rules they do it, we just take it from them anyway? Even if they worked alot harder then everybody else, we should still have perfectly equal distribution of money?
If you want that i can't make you change, but i wouldn't want that.
