He still has his wife's company to fall back on with it billion dollars worth of assets.
He did no different to anyone else in the mining industry and folded back to where he came from when the market slowed much like all the other miners.

Rudd was willing to take on mining head on to get a better deal for the tax payer, the mining companies three millions to prevent that from happening and it wasn't him that caved it was those who deposed him in favor of reducing a tax for fear of how mining would rally against them. Rudd's refusal to back down against mining was heading for an all out war.
