    Basically I just want to be really really rich. Obviously I want to live until I'm 90 too. I don't want anything else - fame or scientific discovery of prizes or anything else. Just loads of money.

    All of my other goals: hot Girlfriend, expensive watch, cars just come downstream from that.

    I don't. I just want enough money in life to make my family and I happy. Enough money so that I could live in a house, pay off loans and enough so that I can feed myself. Being 'rich' would just make everything better because you can ensure that you have enough money to do everything listed above.

    if money is the root of evil, then i think the government should get rid of all the money, and no one will be poor or rich.

    I want to be happy and comfortable and not have to worry about anything. Money is important but I don't think it should be the like only ambition in life.

    Not really. Just well off is ok. Being rich come's with a host of problems. You will take more time just managing your money, stressing about it and being paranoid in general. Causes more problems than it solves.

    Like the day i don't need to work and can just live a comfortable life i will pack it in.

    I want to be rich and successful, but I also want to help the people around me become successful and realise their full potential too. Take the path to wealth that generates the most respect and loyalty from those you lead.

    Money, over a certain amount, becomes more of a curse than a blessing. You start to attract people who only want to be 'friends' with you because of your money. You feel paranoid about people wanting to steal your money. You have to start actively hiding your wealth to avoid this.

    I'd much sooner be comfortably off and have some spare cash than be filthy rich.

    Very true. I also agree with ihatePE's point - money never solves problems, it just makes the world worse than it already is. If we had no money, then no-one would be poor or rich.

    However it isn't, and your solution wouldn't work.
