How long would it take you to spend 1 billion dollars?

How long would it take you to spend $1,000,000,000?

If you spent a thousand dollars an hour ($1,000).

That is 24 thousand dollars a day ($24,000).

That is over 8,7 million dollars a year ($8,760,000)

It would still take you longer than you will live.


It would take 114.16 years.

That is a long time, long, long, time

    add 18 more years to that figure. consider those first years your parents (or the state) is covering your expenses. so you’ve got 8.76 million a year to spend until your 132nd birthday.

    if you’re the US gov’t it takes just 2.4 hours.
