Billionaires Problems


06/02/2015


Quora A&Q site tells about some of the difficulties faced by billionaires.



Life is troubles
 
Ben Mezrich, the author of a book converted into the scenario of the film The Social Network, said that in addition to financial worries, billionaires overcome the same hardships as any other person.
Their girls do not call them back; prostate becomes sick, disgusting and deadly.
 
One of the fundamental differences is how billionaires raise their children.
" The super-rich children often are unfit for life in many areas, because they never had to fight. And it was a struggle that made us strong - says Mezrich. - Fighting lies in human nature, it is the key to evolution, the process of adaptation. If you do not have to fight, you do not need to sharpen your mind or become strong, you're just going with the flow. "
 
Idle speculation of surrounding may be one of the biggest problems for the billionaire, because people "take for granted that you are willing to throw money packs for solving a problem," - writes Philip Remeyker, who calls himself a problems solver.
 
Remeyker writes: "People think that your money are infinite, so you will always be criticized for the fact that you are not spending enough to solve this or that problem." Wealth attracts crowds of people, so sometimes it is difficult to know who is a true friend, he adds.
 
Quora’s user Paul Sullivan believes that the maintaining a marriage in the presence of a bag of money -is intractable. "For most people, marriage is a marathon. How many times do you think it is time to finish with this, but continued to hold it on? "- wrote Sullivan. A frequent case for this - the fact that the divorce is expensive and troublesome. Rich people get divorced easier because they "have fewer reasons to try to glue the broken pot."
 
Billionaires also have to constantly take into account the considerations of personal safety and security, wrote Hong Chen, a former software engineer at Microsoft: «The need to constantly worry about how to avoid becoming a victim of kidnappers is a heavy burden." In addition, he believes that we should watch out for wiretaps.

Being a child of super-rich parents is not easy. The son of a billionaire, who wished to remain anonymous, said his problems began when he was in high school: the other disciples were jealous of the fact that his father earns more than their parents. "The boys - and even adults - climbed out of their way to poke a finger in my family," - he wrote.
 
Sania Bhutto made a note in philosophical discussion that it does not matter how much money you have no one has power over death. In the future, however, she believes that "if the science will be able to make a breakthrough, the first billionaire, who will pay for the (extension) life will show up indeed."
