World's Richest Woman Earns $2 Million Per Hour


She earns more than $2 million an hour! Seriously!

Gina Rinehart is that perfect mix of Bond villain, Marie Antoinette and Cruella de Vil - the kind of stinking rich and socially ham-fisted character that's so easy to hate.

For the past few weeks, Gina Rinehart has been making waves in the media, grabbing headlines and angering people on all corners of the Earth with her blunt views on bettering the Australian economy. No she's not a politician, nor is she a development wonk, she's just filthy stinking rich and damn good at trolling. 


"Africans want to work. Its workers are willing to work for less than $2 per day," she was quoted as saying today in what the BBC calls a "rare public appearance". "We must be realistic, not just promote class warfare ... Indeed, if we competed at the Olympic games as sluggishly as we compete economically, there would be an outcry," the mutlibillionaire added.  Her rant comes just one week after Rinehart wrote in an industry magazine that "there is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire."  She added there:


"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."

Yeah. Not smoking or drinking spell success???


"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.


Who exactly Ms. Rinehart , and why is she allowed to speak so often with so much coverage. She Became the Richest Woman on Earth by Inheriting It

Rinehart is, depending on which report you read, worth around $30 billion. "Her family iron ore prospecting fortune of $30.1 billion makes her Australia's wealthiest person and the richest woman on the planet," wrote the Los Angeles Times's David Lazarus. More specifically, she's the Executive Chairman of Hancock Prospecting a position she's held since 1992 when her father died. And as The New York Times reported in March of this year, "A Citigroup forecast suggests that Ms. Rinehart could be on track to become the world’s wealthiest person, with a personal net worth of more than $100 billion."  


Gina Rinehart is also a mean mom who doesn't believe in trust funds. The Times wrote: 


Georgina Rinehart ... is being sued by three of her four children for control of a trust fund worth billions of dollars. Ms. Rinehart has characterized her litigious children as slackers who need to find real employment, while they have called their mother’s conduct “deceptive” and “disgraceful.’’

Rinehart obtained a 12 percent stake in Fairfax Media in February reported The Australian, making her the largest shareholder in the company at the time. Fairfax publishes two of Australia's most influential papers, The Sydney Morning Hearald and The Age of Melbourne. "Their journalists fear she wants to turn them into a mouthpiece for the mining industry," reported The Economist in June when Rinehart raised her stake to 18.7 percent. And they explain:


The centre-left Fairfax papers (which support the mining tax) operate under a charter guaranteeing journalists freedom from management control on editorial policy. That has no appeal for Mrs Rinehart, who wants directorships “without unsuitable conditions.” The board has rejected her demands.

"It's not the Australian way to toss people $2, to toss them a gold coin, and then ask them to work for a day," Australian Prime Minister Gillard told reporters in response to Rinehart's "rare public appearance" where she unleashed those $2 wage comments. "We support proper Australian wages and decent working conditions."

Mr Swan, an outspoken critic of Australia's mining tycoons, added that Miss Rinehart clearly regarded Australians as "lazy workers who drink and socialise too much".

"These sorts of comments are an insult to the millions of Australian workers who go to work and slog it out to feed the kids and pay the bills," said Treasurer Wayne Swan to reporters after Rinehart's "hard work, stop drinking" comments. While Health Minister Tanya Plibersek told reporters it was "pretty easy for Gina Rinehart to say that people on the minimum wage should get paid less." 

Since she's not exactly running for public office (yet), picking on her and telling her she's wrong comes risk free. If you're an Austraian politician, of course you're going to look good against someone who says the country should idolize underpaid African miners.
