The number one and two richest men in the world are probably recognizable names to most Vdare.com readers, namely the purveyor of second-rate
computer software (as well as champ outsourcer
and H-1B promoter
) Bill Gates
and the investment wizard of Berkshire-Hathaway Warren Buffett
The new number three on the Forbes Billionaires
list is not some oil-pumping sheik, but a Mexican, the telecom magnate Carlos Slim Helu
, with an impressive net worth of $30 billion. He is one of 10 Mexican billionaires
, compared with oil-rich Saudi Arabia`s 11 billionaires
The important point is that Mexico
is a very wealthy country
(as I wrote in "Mexico’s Rich Don`t Like To Pay Taxes — They Think You Should"
). Yet it works tirelessly to dump its unwanted peasants
on the American taxpayer, even though Mexico could well afford to invest
in its people and infrastructure.
But instead of investigating the economic and political system that supports Mexico`s ultra-rich
, our lazy media continues to travel
the well-worn ruts of illegal alien sob stories
about poor Juan
and the millions like him.
