WHAT GOOD DOES HAVING ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD DO FOR ANYONE THAT NEVER SEES HOW DESPERATE SOME PEOPLE ARE FOR JUST THE EVERY DAY NEEDS.
ALL THESE BILLIONAIRES SHOULD REALIZE THEY WILL NEVER BE JUDGED BY WHAT THEY HAVE BUT WHAT THEY DO WITH IT, I, FOR ONE, HAVE NEVER SEEN AN ARMORED Car WITH ALL THEIR MONEY INSIDE, FOLLOWING A RICH PERSON TO THEIR FINAL RESTING PLACE

Give me a break. Gates gives away hundreds of millions to charity. These people own industries that employ thousands and even more in support industries. Thats what drives economies and reduces poverty.

How many people does Microsoft employ around the world, or Apple, or Mittal.

What is laughable to me is the number of people on this list from countries that denounce Capitalism. Bet their singing a different tune now!

It's obscene that these people live the life of luxury, and there are millions of people dying of starvation. As for the Simons-a filthy, rich Democrat. Will wonders ever cease!!!!!!!!!!

Typical response from someone who lives in Hamilton County! And I bet you go to church on Sunday as well. Keep plugging away and maybe we'll see your name on the list someday. Right!

I don't recall seeing Donald Trump anywhere on the list, or the famous
Hilton family whose daughter Paris thinks she is so important.

Alas,

we have a solution.

Bill Gates can divvy his money up and give it to us Hoosiers

Then we can all drive down to French Lick and spend it.

see article "French Lick casino attendance drops:

Paris thought Wal-Mart was where you bought Wall Stuff. But those Waltons haver more money than any Hilton. Hiltons didn't even make the list.

I have no love of the Simons, but look at the size of their building. They employ people, lots of them.

Wealthy people own corporations, spend money and provide venture capital.

This fact seems to be outide the thoughts of this esteemed board.
