Just curious, what is the lowest amount for B) that you would not take in 2 years.

Of course the number would be between $100 and $500.

Considering the risk mentioned by Sammy I would say $350ish

Warren Buffet asks a similar question. If he could buy 10% of all your future earnings from the day you graduate college until death, what would you take? He says almost everyone will sell for $500,000. When it comes to it people don't generally like to invest in themselves.

I would take 500k in a heartbeat. Let's say I make I make 40k a year for 25 years, that's only 1 million. Woudln't taking 500k be the right decision?

How is $500k better than $1000K?

Is $12500 per year for 40 years better than $25000 per year for 40 years?

No to both.

Simple math here guys.

I think even Teddy understands this.

You posted a thread killer. It's unlikely someone will try to one up and it sounds too serious to be joke.

Well, for a lot of reasons, but I guess the first is that if you're just graduating college, make 40K a year and only need to work for 25 years you are really lucky. You'd only be like 47 when you retire.

OP said it's 10% of future earnings. 10% of 1 million is 100k 500k is better than 100k

Now now, I agree the forum should stay civil, but some ball busting must be allowed, and, give it up, Hedge's comment was a true LOL.
