New York resident Anton Purisima may not be the richest man in the world right now, but that will change soon if he has his way.
According to Lowering the Bar, Purisima filed a lawsuit in April seeking more money than has ever been produced in the history of the world. He’s seeking $2 undecillion dollars in the lawsuit, which written out is – get ready for it -- $2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
What could possibly have happened to Purisima that warrants a payout this big? The obvious answer is nothing, which is about how much he should expect to be rewarded here. But he claims he deserves it for civil rights violations, personal injury, discrimination on national origin, retaliation, harassment, fraud, attempted murder, intentional affliction of emotional distress, and conspiracy to defraud.
Purisima brought the lawsuit against a whopping ten different – and seemingly unconnected – entities.
The list goes like this: Au Bon Pain Store, Carepoint Health, Hoboken University Medical Center, Kmart Store 7749, St. Luke's Emergency Dept., New York City Transit Authority, City of New York, NYC MTA, LaGuardia Airport Administration, Amy Caggiula.
So, just how much is $2 undecillion dollars? Again, it’s more money than the entire world has ever produced. The entire world’s GDP last year was $71.83 trillion. We would have to pay Purisima $71.83 trillion for the next 27 sextillion years to pay him off. So yea, have fun trying to wrap your head around how much money that is.
