Millions, billions and even trillion dollar innovations and trends still abound even, during this credit crunch period. There are plenty of millionaires and billionaires who can afford luxury hotels, vacation getaways, cars, jewelry and multimillion dollar parties.
For some though, the insane amount of money is not to their benefit. Handling million dollar bills is worthless if your country has runaway inflation, if a large bill is the cost of huge cleanup projects, or if there is a $2 million reward for your capture.
Then there are the buyouts on the corporate scale. For individuals, innovations include a virgin who is willing to trade in her innocence for a million dollars, then there is a lucky art buyer whose Leonardo da Vinci drawing turned out to be worth a whole lot of moola.
But it’s not all about taking. There are million dollar charities too and a modern era Robin Hood.
If you’re not amongst the moneyed crowd, then you can pretend to be a Dot.com billionaire in the boardgame version!
