Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't think you're reading the definition of decreasing marginal utility correctly.  It deals with goods, not money.  Example: "I own a new Jaguar.  I've wanted to all my life.  I could buy another, if I wished to do so, but I already have one.  A second isn't worth the money to me, and I'd rather have a mansion on the coast of France (which will provide a higher level of utility than the second Jaguar)."

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
