Breakdown

Just for fun, let's see how much money $3.7 billon really is.

Well, it's $72,549,020 for a week of work, assuming you took a week off to celebrate the holidays.

Assuming you work harder than the average hedge fund manager (for fun, let's say 73 hours/week, on average), it's $993,822 AN HOUR!

And that's 33 times the amount of money I'll make in one year where I work.

Who am I? I'm John Paulson, and I made more money than you last year. I guess the real question becomes, what do you spend it on?

Ummm that's a lot of money. I think I would buy you a remote control helicopter (but not a real helicopter until you prove you can fly the remote control one.)

At that point, it wouldn't even matter if he broke off $500k or even $1M for me to retire at a young age. Maybe I need to call him up. . .
