$2M to Retire
« on: September 15, 2020, 08:26:07 PM »
This is an anti-anti-mustachian post, imo.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/stevenbertoni/2020/09/15/exclusive-the-billionaire-who-wanted-to-die-brokeis-now-officially-broke/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=dailydozen&cdlcid=5d01057f1802c8c524bb7dcd#ce81b8c3a2aa

Take that, Suzy Orman!  Not only does this guy feel comfortable retiring with $2M, but he gave away $8,000M!

I'm not a super warm and fuzzy charity guy, just not my DNA, but mad props to the guy who can give away $8,000M and say "you know what?  $2M will be enough for the rest of my life."  Mad props.

Damn, that is impressive.

“$76 million for grassroots campaigns supporting the passage of Obamacare”

So most of us here owe him a drink for helping to pass what is a cornerstone of US-based FIRE plans.

That's really awesome - and at age 89, he seems to have timed it right.

Also, he looks pretty damn good for 89.

The world needs more givers, and this guy is such an amazing example!
