World's richest woman says poor should have less fun, work harder



(Hey bitch, you could @ least afford to go to a fat farm)

Gina Rinehart, the world's richest woman, says people who are jealous of the wealthy should work harder. (Twitter / August 30, 2012)

By David Lazarus (LA Times)

August 30, 2012, 9:31 a.m.

Just in case you were beginning to think rich people were deeply misunderstood and that they feel the pain of those who are less fortunate, here's the world's wealthiest woman, Australian mining tycoon Gina Rinehart, with some helpful advice.

"If you're jealous of those with more money, don't just sit there and complain," she said in a magazine piece. "Do something to make more money yourself -- spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising, and more time working." Yeah, let them eat cake.

Rinehart made her money the old-fashioned way: She inherited it. Her family iron ore prospecting fortune of $30.1 billion makes her Australia's wealthiest person and the richest woman on the planet.

"There is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire," she said by way of encouragement.

"Become one of those people who work hard, invest and build, and at the same time create employment and opportunities for others." Boom. Almost too easy.

Why are people poor? Rinehart blamed what she described as "socialist," anti-business government policies, and urged Australian officials to lower the minimum wage and cut taxes.

"The millionaires and billionaires who choose to invest in Australia are actually those who most help the poor and our young," she said. "This secret needs to be spread widely."

And now it's out there. Thank you, rich people. We're not worthy.

Minimum wage in Australia is more than avarage pole makes. Unemployment is reasonably low. How is it even possible to "be poor" in Australia ?

I'm alaways right, even when Im wrong...

Re: World's richest woman says poor should have less fun, work harder

How is she any different from most of America's rich, and fox news. With the clear expectional of the group patriotic millionaires, a group of wealthy people who want to pay MORE in taxes.

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

This woman is a crazy bitch anyway. I remember hearing in the news recently she was trying to stop her children inheriting any of the money.

The cost of living is actually quite high as well.

I can think of certain people who are guilty of this tbh, except they spend a lot of their time breeding as well. Having 5 kids by the time you're 25 isn't exactly going to help your financial situation.

Re: World's richest woman says poor should have less fun, work harder

She has a point. For every poor person who's a victim of circumstances and bad luck, there are a few who are just deadbeats.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

I meant inheriting it from a trust set up by her father before he died.

Re: World's richest woman says poor should have less fun, work harder

Why must people with an agenda twist things. The woman said:"people who are jealous of the wealthy should work harder" I agree with her.

And as for her earning it by inheriting it - so what? By the account given her father earned the money through savvy business.
Quote:
"As a child, Hancock showed a keen interest in mining and prospecting and discovered asbestos at Wittenoom Gorge at the age of ten. He staked a claim at Wittenoom in 1934 and began mining blue asbestos there in 1938 with the company Australian Blue Asbestos.
People act like being poor makes one noble or virtuous. It doesn't.

Mulder: "So you're agreeing with me?"
Scully "No! You're bat-crap crazy."

Oh!! She wants the money for herself while she is still alive even though she has more money than she could spend in 4 lifetimes?

Won't this just make the rich richer and the poor poorer?

For every entrepeneur making a mint from this there will be a hundred workers underneath them being exploited for even less money.

Not everyone can be rich, there are always people who will suffer to make others rich.
