    Apple CEO Tim Cook is giving hundreds of millions of dollars to charity.
    Cook, who is close to becoming a billionaire, says he will pay for his nephew's college education, then donate the rest of his wealth to philanthropic projects, according to Fortune.

    No he won't. He'll slowly give it away and won't miss a thing he wants in life. This just means he doesn't have any family he wants to have it when he's gone.
    Call me when he's living in a tent by the side of the road after "giving away his fortune".

    Ding, ding, ding. To the super rich, "giving it all away" has a different meaning than if you and I did the same.

    do some of these super rich have the right idea? If they handed huge fortunes to some kids who did not earn it are they creating a monster?

    if you have family I would think a trust that takes care of basic living (paid off house ) few other things can really allow your kid to find and do what they like without having millions at their disposal.
