From what I've heard (and seen) of this woman in the past week, I can say she's despicable...
She inhered a $1.5bn mining empire from her father and then rode the wave of China buying up Australian minerals.
Yet she feels she must share her business wisdom with the little people?
A drunken baboon would have been successful as her.
edit on 5-9-2012 by ollncasino because: (no reason given)
Not to be a pest, but Gina Reinhart had a net worth of approximately $75 million when her father passed. Her, or the team her father left her, turned
that into approximately $29.17 billion. Far more than inflation would cover.
She may say stupid things, but she may also be brilliant when it comes to her business'.
And, no, a drunken baboon would not have been as successful as her, many have inherited more and lost it.
And a lottery winner turns $2 into $270 million if they win the jackpot!
Sure there MIGHT be other sociopaths who started with $75 mill and turned out poor.... but the point is, nobody WAS SMART ENOUGH TO FORCE AUSTRALIANS
"compete" with $2 a day in a civil society just because they were in the right place and right time when China starts importing everything they can
dig up. I mean really, Gina has these mines and they ask her for minerals -- and she has TWO choices, one which will be brilliant and genius, and the
other choice will leave her merely rich. "OK, I'll sell you those minerals!" Brilliant! "OK, I lower wages because I've got people I can get in
government who see things my way!" Brilliant again!
The only wrong choices she could have made is to grow a conscience it seems.
Why don't we all just get smarter and kidnap rich people? -- we could be brilliant too! Why that's wrong, I hear someone saying; sure, and so is
pushing people to live on $2 a day. But that's LEGAL! I hear another bird chiming in.
And as soon as someone kidnaps the WalMart trust fund babies -- they can have billions of "free speech" and overnight, Glass Stegall will be
repealed -- er, um, no, overnight, kidnapping will be legal!
So if kidnapping were legal, someone is going to be hailed as a genius for kidnapping a LOT of rich jerks. And it's just the jealous people who
don't admire innovation, who will whine and say; "But it's wrong." It's wrong because you didn't think of it first and innovate!
I'm going to patent the iRansom app right now that automates payments and makes at least 33 random hops on anonymous routers. I'm going to be a JOB
>> I mean, some fool might suggest that civil countries CHARGE MORE to import junk from low wage countries -- but then that would hurt our IMPORTS! IT
didn't stop China from having 20-40% tariffs and now they are about to export airplanes.... but we can't argue with all these genius capitalists.
1,000 people have the wealth of 2.5 Billion people on the planet. That means that if they consumed HALF what they do now in yachts, buying elections,
and prostitutes; 2.5 Billion people wouldn't go to be hungry, might get an education, might have hope.
But what a waste for so many people who aren't smart enough to lower wages of other people so that they can go from $75 million to many billions of
dollars! Oh -- but I'm probably just making an assumption that the lower wages go to owner profits. It's probably money coming from angels.
