I was a little surprised to hear that we now have (probably over) 60 billionaires! "There are 22 women on the 2017 Financial Review Rich List and eight female billionaires."

The richest dude in Australia (12.6 bills) is into boxes and recycling. Hardly glamorous but he certainly nailed a need. I found that interesting.

His dad nailed the need about 50 years ago.

Crazy how much the wealth of mining magnates fluctuates because of the value of resources. Mainly due to Chinese demand.

Yeah, he's driving it now but he didn't make it all. They mention his dad in the article. The fact we have 60 billionaires surprised me almost as much the boxes. And of course it didn't take long before the bitter old jealous lefties started with their old "rich get richer and the poor get poorer" diatribe.

Haha aren't they having a field day with that nonsense, like the property developer from the Gold Coast a few weeks ago that told Gen Y to stop buying avocado on toast and coffees and use their money wisely, all the comments on social media criticised him for buying a gym (at 19) with money borrowed from his grandfather, rather than try and take some advice from his message.

I don't know why people like him bother being interviewed by mainstream media when thats the kind of rubbish that they cop.
