What will you do if you had one billion dollars? I would have probably started some company or start some business where lots of people gets jobs and would have brought all things I dreamed in my life.

If I had one billion dollars with me, I'd use it build a new house similar to Michael Jackson's House and I'll make it very comfortable for my parents and all my relatives. I'd always ask them to stay with me in my big palace! And then I'd invest some money in some good business so that I have my future secured. And then I'll give a small share to charity and keep the remaining in my bank account! Cheers!

You must get along much better with your relatives than I do with mine. I can not imagine living with any of my relatives...or at least, not happily.

I also think that family and friends come more than money. I think it is good to give money to charity and also to do some good business.

I would go on a shopping spree, put some of the money in the bank (because who knows when we might need it?), give some to friends and family, and donate the rest to a whole bunch of charities. Or help the starving.

I think it is one of the sweetest thing to do especially giving the money to the charities and the people who are starving.

I should have opened a amusement park as no such park is here even far away from us. So we people need one to enjoy our holidays and have fun too, And it will come as a purpose of bussiness to And will add charm to the infrastructure of the place.

Help those who are very poor and sponsor students to go for further studies. Build house of worships regardless of any beliefs and I would adopt many children especially those orphans. In the meantime I will look for feasible investments so the billion that I have will generate income so I can continue to help society who are in difficulties.

Ha ha ha ha ha! First of all I won't have that much money with me. Even if I will have that much, I will count them. I would like to have all of them in one dollar coin. What do you think how much time it would take to count all of them and will I be having time to do anything with that money!

I think it is always great to have dreams in my life. May be we would never end counting the money if we had such a huge amount of money.

I think I would help out my family as well as myself to get out of debt first. I would also want to help other people financially also that are in need of money. I may start a business also so people could have jobs. I would also invest some of it.

I have no idea truly what I would do. There's always the obvious like paying off debts and never having to worry about money for the rest of my life would make me happy. IDK about starting a company like you mentioned, but I would like to get people working or atleast help them get their basic necessities. So many of us including myself scrimp to make sure bills are paid and bellies are full.

I think it is always good to have a debt free life and most probably we should work hard to have a debt free life.

I'd put $1 million in my wallet, $1 million in the bank, and I'd invest the rest in something really really good, that won't tank, like the rest of the ecconomy. My husband and I would love to have a billion bucks right about now. That would be really really nice. :)

If I had a billion dollars, the first thing I would do is pay off all my debts, including my student loans (also my wife's) and my mortage. Then I would smile at my neighbor and buy both of the houses he has up for sale on my block. Both of them would be demolished, so that I could build a new building for mine and the wife's business (office and meeting space for myself, an art studio for the wife). If there was any money left, then investing and saving.

I would go on a shopping spree, buy a new car, buy a new house, donate to charities that help abused animals and children, and homeless hungry eople in 3rd world countries. I would then put half of the rest of what I had in the bank, and invest the other half in stocks and real estate. Oh, what a life!

It is always great to get the money and to have house someone near the oceans and to see the sea or oceans and releasing from the home watching sea.
