37 billion dollars is a lot of money, even by the standards of the ridiculously rich. What is the significance of this number? This is the amount of money that is wasted each year on business meetings, thwarting the effectiveness and efficiency in good business practice. Consider this figure in context with the following items that could be purchased with 37 Billion dollars.
1. Major Sports Franchise
At this price, the sports enthusiast could basically take their pick of any of the major sports franchises. We’re not just talking about consistently losing franchises either. This much money could easily purchase a certain Super Bowl winning football team roughly 30 times over!
2. Major Film & Television Production Studio

Ever wanted to star in a major motion picture or television series? 37 Billion could buy Paramount Studios 3 and 1/2 times. So instead of choosing between a movie or a television show, why not star in both?
3. Cowboys Stadium

One of the most incredible stadiums of the modern era could be yours for a cool 1.1 Billion. Since you have so much left over, why not construct a Cowboys stadium in 35 other major cities as well?
4. 30 Percent of Apple Stock
Make sure you are always current on the latest and greatest in technological gadgets. Anyone, who owns a third of the company should get first crack at all those wonderful new toys, right?
5. White House

The likelihood of becoming President Of The United States is slim to none though, who’s to say you can’t live like one? For 37 billion dollars you could not only purchase the White House; you could erect 140 replicas in any city, anywhere.

Since the White House has so much garage space and you have so many of them, why not purchase 37000 gold plated Bentleys to keep safe? That’s what 37 Billion could buy.
7. Air Force One
When transport is significant enough to require air travel, why not hop on one of 70 Air Force planes. Yup, that’s how many you could purchase with 37 billion dollars!
8. The World’s Most Expensive Yacht
Why not park one of your Air Force series planes on the largest and most expensive yacht in the world? Choose from any of the 37 versions of the “Streets Of Monaco” Yachts that will always be ready for you to use.
9. Combined Debt Of Countries

While 37 billion can certainly buy a lot of toys and frivolous impulse purchases, it can also do some good. Why not take all that money and wipe out the debts of Panama, El Salvador and Costa Rica combined? Yes, you absolutely could!
10. The United States Budget For The World Health Organization
Philanthropy can become contagious, so help out the US by covering their budget toward The World Health Organization. For 37 Billion dollars, you could cover the costs for the next 9 years.
11. Paid Holiday To Cancun
Most of us could most likely afford this now, if we could ever get away from the office. This isn’t a solo trip however. This is an all expense paid vacation for you and 10 million of your closest business associates. Time to get out of those board meetings and into the sunshine of an exotic beach.
