World's Richest Woman

World's Richest Woman
This is Gina Rinehart (below). She is currently the world's richest woman.

She is an Australian and she's just been in the news for making these comments:
quote:
There is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire
...
If you're jealous of those with more money, don't just sit there and complain. Do something to make more money yourself -- spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising, and more time working.
...
Become one of those people who work hard, invest and build, and at the same time create employment and opportunities for others.


Gina herself is a billionaire miner. But the thing is, she didn't start of creating all her wealth through simply her own 'hard work'. She inherited her iron ore company 'Hancock Prospecting' from her father. And Hancock Prospecting holds some of the largest land leases for regions of Western Australia that contain the largest iron ore deposits in the world.

So how much has she inherited and how much has been her own labor?

I have a bad taste towards this individual and what she represents because back when Kevin Rudd was trying to introduce a new 40% tax on non-renewable resource depleting companies like mining companies, companies like Gina's created negative propaganda through media advertising targeted at the general public to sway positivity away from the new prime minister:
quote:
Billions of dollars are [were] expected to be raised from the tax, which will be spent on pensions, tax cuts for small businesses and infrastructure projects, particularly in Queensland and Western Australia.

quote:
The collapse of Mr Rudd's proposed RSPT was central to Labor's decision to dump him in favour of Julia Gillard in June 2010, after mining companies bankrolled an anti-Labor advertising campaign.

Kevin Rudd had some revolutionary ideas, especially in relation to economics and environmental issues. It's a shame we never got to see them to fruition. Gina claims that she has her countries best interest in mind - 'The millionaires and billionaires who choose to invest in Australia are actually those who most help the poor and our young' - but it's a farce as far as her actions have shown.
