Cars are one of the worst investments ever. This is a prime example of that, to extreme. My car is due for a timing belt and now I don't feel so bad about that being my number one maintenance issue.
Investing in cars is like investing in anything else, you need to know what you’re doing, avoid buying in a bubble, and be lucky enough to get out before the bubble bursts.
There's the old saying "The two happiest days in a man's life are when he buys a boat and when he sells it".
Hey he's blowing his money on cool super expensive toys when he could be using it to lobby against AIDS medication or buying his way into running government institutions. I'm putting him in the "possibly alright" category of rich guys.
He could be helping people with his wealth, but at least he's not actively trying to do things that will get people killed. That's how low our standards for rich bastards have gotten.
There were probably some serfs toiling away in a field, grateful that their lord only steals a lot of their harvest, instead of most of it and beats them

The aristocracy dont use their *personal* wealth for those purposes. Its strictly reserved for investing + buying yacths n shit.
Those things you mentioned are *business*. One uses the companies money for that.
I know, I know, being filthy rich entitles you to spend money like it's water, but I still can't get over the fact that there are people out there who buy a car for the price of a mansion.
