Gank!

How much money would you need to:

Stop worrying about money
I don't know that I'd ever stop. But for one lump sum, say $2.5 million after taxes.)

Quit a job you didn't like
$1.75.

Retire at whatever age you are
I'll say a cool mil. After taxes, of course.

Feel rich
Over 2 million.

Feel really rich
Over $100 million.

Set up your own philanthropic organization
Critical mass. Somewhwere between $10-100 million.

Remind me next time you're up in the Cites to give you a buck-75. :)

Hmm... I wonder?
How much money would I need to:

Stop worrying about money

$2-3 million. I'd keep working, but that amount would mean comfort, investment potential and enjoyment.

Quit a job you didn't like
Preferred: $CURRENTSALARY + 5-10% + bennies. However, $CURRENTSALARY + $1000/year + bennies is what I left my last job for.

Retire at 31
Same as the first one: 2-3 mil.

Feel rich
Anything above $2 million.

Feel really rich
Anything above $10 million.

Set up your own philanthropic organization
Anything above $10 million. The beauty of philanthropic organizations is that it's not all your own money you're giving, but the money of wealthy contributors. That said, I've never heard anyone called a philanthropist who donated less than $1M to a cause.
