Ohio State is receiving criticism for performing exceptionally well during the offseason.

What I’m trying to convey is that, for many of us, once a certain monetary threshold is reached, the value of money becomes almost abstract. In my mind, there’s no practical distinction between a few million dollars and five hundred billion dollars because I’m unlikely to possess either sum, and even if I did, I wouldn’t know how to manage it effectively (although, if someone is willing to give me five hundred billion dollars, I’d be more than willing to give it a shot).

A fascinating example that illustrates this idea is a website from 2021, visually portraying the disparity between median household income, a million dollars, a billion dollars, and the fortunes of the ultra-wealthy. For an average person viewing this chart, amounts exceeding a million dollars might appear exceedingly extravagant.
