"When you accumulate such a vast fortune, in today's terms between a few hundred billion dollars and a few trillion dollars, there ceases to be avenues where money can be deployed to earn more money. You are at a mass as such that can only increase as much as the global economy will allow it. At this point you can own all assets that will perform well enough to still gain and no more. At this point growth slows and nearly stops but pretty much entirely supports the global economy. Also, at this point, a rational person probably has no more materially to want."

One truly hopes...I forget who said it, but I think one of the funniest lines I ever heard was, "After ten million, it's all just paperwork anyway."

Thanks for the prop, exilion!
