The rich will always have that perogative although a budget of $24,000 net per month is not exactly depriving ones self is it. Slim is a greedy pig that owns Mexico. Barely a day does not go by where a Mexican Citizen spends money on something he owns, foood, cement, telecommunications, steel, transportation, rent, gifts, electricity, gasoline (he owns many gas stations)tolls, automobiles, what, corn, hotels, and the list goes on. He has a monopoly that has a strangle hold on the country and the people, yet I know from expirience that those who work in one of his many business's get paid starvation wages. At Telcel the wireless monopoly in Mexico he owns for example he would instruct suppliers to fly to Mexico stand in line for several hours to hand in the volumes of paperwork he generates to get paid for the antennas or cable or other equipment a company had shipped to Telcel months earlier. The paperwork is so complicated that one little error and you would have to start the process all over again next week insuring you will never get paid. The payment window was only open from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, staffed by 2 idiots and only open 3 hours so if you did not stand in line by 6:30 AM you do not get paid because the line would go go the end of the block. We finally refused to sell them anything. How nice, you send them product, they do not pay. No wonder the bastard is rich. Personally the Mexicans ougth to do away with this bastard Arab but he has all of the Government in his pocket and that will never happen. I am sure his greedy fingers are also in the drug business but that has yet to be proven. I wuold bet everything I had that he is indeed involved. Having had the great luck to travel to Mexico I am quite familiar with the culture. It is a wonderful cuture and the Mexican people are warm a dlightful well educated human beings but it people like Slim that keeps them down. If you are poor in Mexico you have no chance of survival so they flee just to survive risking life and limb while Slim brags about how austere he is living. What piece of excrement on a piece of toilet paper floating out to sea with the rest of the raw sewage that makes us not so human.

The cost for the poor people to use telcel or anything associated with telcel here in Mexico is over the top. Way more expensive then in the United States. If I used my cell as much as I used it in the United States I would have a $300 a month bill as opposed to $30 a month in the U.S.

If he is a billionare many times over, why can he not give the people a break?
