None of the wealthy in those countries paid their tax Gina. You have spent enough taking your own children to court to bail out the lot of them!

Gina's main current wishlist includes flying in overseas worker and paying them a quarter of the basic wage , and owning a newspaper and some TV stations , so she can play with Rupert Murdoch....she is firmly in the Liberal party camp, because she is very close friends from her university days with Tony Abbott, Michael Kroger and a whole host of top level liberal party members....(lol)

Gosh - Foo really has the dirts with the Liberal Party - get a grip on life - this woman that you are so disparaging about is in the position she is in - like the richest woman in the world - because she has worked hard all her life and earnt it. Obviously you are one of those who aspire to the tall poppy syndrome - got nothing better to do with your time than to show just how ignorant and jealous you are - Venom gets you nowhere - try positive thinking.

That's not quite true Winnis. The statements about the Libs are , indeed fact....and presented as such, totally without any venom at all......Gina Reinhardt inherited her wealth , and has done a very good job at both keeping it and increasing it, and no one can take that away from her.....but, wealth alone does not give one the right to influence or dictate the lives of others , does it ?....she also has a longstanding relation of friendship with the top hierachy of the Liberal party , who went to great lengths just a few years back to deny the proposal of a mining super tax on resources that belong to all Australians......you got jealousy mixed up with disgust , I think........I'm positive of it.

How do these resources belong to all Australians? So if I found gold in my yard and invested in machinery and labour to get it out, should I then have to share what I get with everyone else? Typical Labor idiot

That GRhino has the hide to warn anyone of anything to do with the state of national or global economics is an extreme overestimation of her limited intelligence and an extreme underestimation of the benefits of her unearned inheritance and life-long tax shelters.

The Mining sector is only 10% of Australian GDP so not the end of the world as we know it.
Mainly it would affect people like Rinehart who get the get the money and keep it for themselves anyway

Gina Reinhart is filthy rich because her father was Lang Hancock who made a fortune when he discovered the world's largest iron deposit.

Your almost right Mypen. You would have to keep it secret until you "staked your claim"....then ride your donkey to nearset saloon , and organise a "grubstake" until you started pullin up those big ole damn Nuggets !.....yeeeeha !!!....(lol).....mining leases in many forms , cover everything from your local gravel and sand quarry, to coal mines and gas mines. What's under the dirt on top belongs to Australia, and you can mine it and pay a royalty.....Lang secured the leases,then done the deals with big companies , to do the mining. Neither Lang nor Gina have ever run their own mine.....which is why the "Roy Hill" project is Gina's holy grail..and good luck to her ,I'm sure over time she will succeed...but she's already engaged Rio Tinto(I think) to mine part of the lease to keep profits coming in......Its also important to note that Gough Whitlam intended to develop mines to run extensive , totally Australian owned, run and "operated by Australians" , before Malcolm Fraser and John Howard sabotaged the deal , to pander to the wants of multi-national mining conglomerates , as the Liberal party still do today.......Australia lost big time.......a major multi-billion dollar Liberal party scam of mammoth proportions, which makes the current smear campaign against the government look like lunch money for a kid going to kindergarten.....if only the real truth was known !

That's it, Gina is not exactly a rags-to-riches story, she may have handled her inherited wealth wisely but she never created that wealth.

Well, you would expect someone with all her advantages to be somewhat more refined, that is true.

No, after all, we are all different, her lack of class is one thing, her arrogance toward working Australians is another - she uses her own fortunate (financial) circumstances as a bench mark by which to judge others and that is not right.
