    Hedge Fund Billionaire Buys Florida Mansion for $111 million, Setting State Record (CNBC)
    Hedge fund billionaire Steven Schonfeld and his wife bought a sprawling Palm Beach estate for $111 million, making it the most expensive home ever sold in Florida. Schonfeld, founder of New York-based Schonfeld Strategic Advisors, closed Tuesday on the 6-acre estate known as La Reverie, according to a spokesman. The estate, sold by hair-care mogul Sydell Miller, has more than 70,000 square feet of living space, with 11 bedrooms, 22 bathrooms, a bowling alley, salon, spa, ice cream stand and candy parlor. It had been listed for $200 million.

    With a net worth of 1.3B, this is like someone with net worth $1M buying a house for $85K. Seems reasonable.

    Umm, no, the guy just spent 10% of his net worth on something he doesn't need. This is the folly of being super-wealthy

    "Something he doesn't need?" With that level of wealth, there are no needs - only things you desire.
