Fellow P.iers, ye won't need to check out the link below to know from which national Sunday broadsheet the above Fascinating Factoid has oozed, sorry, originated.
Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not anti-wealth. But this extolling of its supposed virtues, as if the related benefits weren't enough (not to mention the implied insult to 15 million Ecuadoreans) is not something that I can identify with and I doubt I'll ever feel the need to.
Apart from the Collison brothers, much of this Top 300 looks like old, inherited or speculative wealth. I think I'll find the Ecuadoreans somewhat more interesting, gracias.

Mods, I've put this in Media since, for me, the issue for discussion is the Sindo's treatment of the story. Disagree and move if required.
