Obviously, one of the world’s most extraordinary realities is the percentage of the world’s billionaires who are, more or less, Jewish.

However, extremely little research into this fascinating phenomenon has been published either by academics or by the mainstream media in the U.S. Fortunately, the general understanding that quantifying Jewish wealth is Just Not Done does not extend to Jewish ethnic media, who find the topic, understandably, fascinating.

So most of the lists have instead been compiled by small Jewish media outlets.

For example, while Jews are usually estimated to make up about 0.2% of the world’s population, while this 2018 Jewish Business News article estimates that Jewish billionaires make up about two orders of magnitude higher of a percentage (19%) of the Forbes‘ list of the top 200 richest people in the world.

(By the way, this 19% estimate for the world’s top 200 is comparable to but slightly less than my 2011 estimate that 23% of all Nobel laureates in the three hard science categories — one of the more legit measures of contribution — have been Jewish. So we are talking about a small group with a broad range of impressive talents and accomplishments.)

But the fact that only small Jewish ethnic outlets will publicly county Jewish billionaires means the quality control of such estimates is usually not high. For instance, just by eyeballing the following list, I can identify a number of problems with it.

Of course, any such lists raise questions both of accuracy and of how to categorize billionaires of mixed ancestry.

From Jewish Business News:

Jews Make-Up 19% Of Forbes 200 World’s Richest List

Jews are disproportionately represented on the roster of the richest business people, with 10 Jews among the top 50 (20%), and 38 (19%) Jews among first 200 world’s wealthiest. …

Forbes pinned down 259 newcomers from 227 billion a year ago, among them are a few Jews: Russ Weiner, 48, worth $4.4 billion, the founder and CEO of Rockstar energy drinks; Jerry Reinsdorf, 82, owner of the NBA’s Chicago Bulls and the MLB’s Chicago White Sox. He started his professional life as a tax attorney with the Internal Revenue Service, and Ken Grossman, 63, worth $1 billion, a co-founder of the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Weiner is the son of conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage (born Michael Weiner).

Jewish Women the list including Shari Arison ($4.4 billion), Karen Pritzker ($4.3 billion), Lynn Schusterman ($3.7 billion) and Doris Fisher ($3.2 billion) and Sheryl Sandberg ($1 billion)

Two well knows Jewish figures are among the first 10th of world richest. (1-10):

#5 Mark Zuckerberg, 33, (Facebook) with $71 billion

#10 Larry Ellison, 73, (Oracle) with $58.5 billion.

To be technical, Larry Ellison is half Jewish by nature (born during WWII, he is the biological son of an Italian-American military pilot and a Jewish-American teenager) and all Jewish by nurture (he was raised by his biological mother’s aunt and uncle). My rule of thumb is to divvy up nature and nurture 50-50, so that would make Ellison 3/4ths Jewish. Your mileage may differ, however.

Three Jewish businessmen rank in the second 10th (10-20):

#11 Michael Bloomberg, 76, (Bloomberg LP) with $50 billion

#12 Larry Page, 44, (Google) with $48.8 billion

Page is definitely Jewish on his mother’s side. But his father’s side is unclear.

#13 Sergey Brin, 44, (Google) with $47.5 billion.

Ranked 20-50

#21 Sheldon Adelson, 84, (Casinos) with $38.5 billion

#22 Steve Ballmer, 61, (Microsoft) with $38.4 billion.

Ballmer’s mother was of Jewish ancestry, his father was not.

#36 Joseph Safra, 79, (banking) with $23.5 million [billion]

#39 Michael Dell, 53 (Dell computers) with $22.7 billion

#48 Len Blavatnik, 60 (diversified) with $20.2 billion.

Ranked 50-200

#52 James Simons, 79 (hedge funds) with $20 billion

#64 Leonid Mikhelson, 62 (gas, chemicals) with $18 billion

#69 Gina Rinehart, 64, (mining) with $17.4 billion

A different article in Jewish Business News says that Rinehart is not Jewish.

#73 Carl Icahn, 82 (Investments) with $16.8 billion

#83 Vladimir Potanin, 57, (metals) with $15.9 billion

#88 David & Simon Reuben (investments, real estate) with $15.5 billion

#93 Mikhail Fridman, 53, (oil, banking, telecom) $15.1 billion

#99 Viktor Vekselberg, 60, (metals, energy) $14.4 billion

#102 Steve Cohen, 61, (hedge funds) with $14 billion

#102 Dustin Moskovitz, 33, (Facebook) with $14 billion

#108 Philip Anschutz, 78, (investments) with $13 billion

I believe Anschutz is a Protestant of German ethnicity. It’s common for people, Jews and gentiles alike, to assume that anybody rich and/or smart with a Germanic-sounding name must be Jewish. But, actually, gentile Germans are also a fairly high achieving group.

#108 Alain Wertheimer, 69, (Chanel) with $13 billion

#108 Gerard Wertheimer, 67, (Chanel) with $13 billion

#113 Leonard Lauder, 80, (Estee Lauder) with $12.9 billion

#116 Hasso Plattner, 74, (software) with $12.7 billion

#117 Stephen Schwarzman, 71, (investments) $12.6 billion

#138 David Tepper, 60, (hedge funds) with $11 billion

#140 Roman Abramovich, 51, (steel, investments) with $10.8 billion

#148 Eduardo Saverin, 35, (Facebook) with $10.1 billion

#152 German Khan, 56, (oil, banking, telecom) with $9.8 billion

#152 Ronald Perelman, 75, (leveraged buyouts) with $9.8 billion

#154 Micky Arison, 68, (Carnival Cruises) with $9.7 billion

#158 Mikhail Prokhorov, 52, (investments) $9.6 billion

#167 Harry Triguboff, 82, (real estate) with $9.2 billion

#170 Jan Koum, 42, (WhatsApp) with $9.1 billion

#186 Xavier Niel, 50, (internet, telecom) with $8.1 billion

#190 David Geffen, 75, (movies, record labels) with $8 billion

#190 George Soros, 87, (hedge funds) $8 billion

#202 Nicky Oppenheimer, 72, (diamonds) with $7.7 billion

I suspect the current heir to the old DeBeers fortune is only 1/2 Jewish by this point.

So this list includes some people who don’t appear to be Jewish at all and others who are mixed. On the other hand, this list may have missed several individuals who are either completely Jewish or part Jewish, especially on their mother’s side.

So the general rule of thumb that Jews are over-represented among the world’s richest by more than one and approaching two orders of magnitude appears to be valid.

One might think that this data would discourage Jewish journalists from going on and on about “white privilege” on the prudent principle that those who live in glass mansions shouldn’t throw bricks. But, on the other hand, how often do the gentile masses ever think about Jewish wealth and its implications? That’s just Not a Topic in the Narrative.

    The richest Russian woman in the world is an interesting story, and I think she is not Jewish by birth, despite her name (which is from her first husband).

    She is called Margarita Dreyfus (after her husband), and from a poor, gangster family – when she was a small girl, both her parents (who were criminals) died in a car catastrophe, and she was in an orphanage.

    She married a French oligarch/businessman, who later died – making her inherit CEO position of his company.

    She has 5 children. After she remarried again, she gave birth to twin girls at age 54.

    On the son’s instagram, you can see the 57 year old CEO woman, really has twin infants.

    First, you didn’t allow us to own farms and cattle in Europe and when we shifted to money lending and mercantile businesses , Christ suckers started accusing us of usury.
    Antisemitism nowadays seems to be “rooted less in religion or contempt and more rooted in envy, jealousy and fear” of Jewish affluence, and the hidden power of “Jewish money”. which all are nothing but Conspiracy Theories.
    Jews on an average have a very high IQ (Don’t you so called HBD guys believe in this). That’s why, we are able to succeed in almost all the fields of life.
    Jews have also worked to ensure that People of Color and Working Class don’t get oppressed by Hillbilly turned White Trash Senators.

    Good luck figuring out what people actually own, control and what it is really worth.

    If it is hard to figure out the value of Trump’s assets, it must be ten times harder for some of the names on this list.

    For example, one of VP Biden’s son’s many foreign bosses is Ihor Kolomoisky, a Jewish oligarch from Ukraine, who may be exiled to Israel and owns, I think, Burisma.

    Estimates of his worth seem to be all over the place.

    He shares lawyers with the Jewish president of Ukraine.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ihor_Kolomoyskyi

    If, as seems to be the case, the Russia collusion hoax, the Ukrainegate impeachment inquiry and whatever Nadler comes up with in the senate once Schiff’s thing falls apart are actually an effort to hide Obama era corruption in the Ukraine, then some of these conspiracy theories may not be theories.

    Do you think that calling people “Christ suckers” might have something to do with it? Anyway, the story you recite is the usual tale of woe and oppression. Do you think it likely that people emigrated from the Near East all the way up to central Europe to NOT own farms and cattle? Or did they travel there to get into the lucrative usury business? Middle-man minorities move to places that offer them middle-man opportunities.

    Antisemitism nowadays seems to be “rooted less in religion or contempt and more rooted in envy, jealousy and fear” of Jewish affluence, and the hidden power of “Jewish money”. which all are nothing but Conspiracy Theories.

    So-called “anti-semitism” is a charge that increasingly seems to have less to do with hating Jews than in simply noticing jewish wealth, power, influence, and the consequences those have for gentiles in our own societies.

  15. Sorta OT, but speaking of World’s Richest Jews, Bloomberg is now formally in the race.

    The current political class in the US has shown itself incapable of governing, yet has itself entrenched like a parasite on the levers of power. Having people like Trump and Bloomberg, with real world success and accomplishments, in politics, is good for the country. Hope they can continue to purge the country of political aristocrats like the Bushs, Biden, Pelosi and the Clintons.

    Thanks.

    Larry Page’s paternal grandfather was an autoworker and labor organizer. He is said to have hated religion (or maybe that was Larry’s dad, the comp sci professor). I could imagine the Pages coming out of the gentile socialist labor movement, which is largely forgotten today, but was pretty important in the past.

    Jews are 2 percent of Americans, not 0.2 percent. I think the best metric is what percentage of Americans (and citizens of Americanesque countries) are Jewish, not what percent of Africans, Indians, et al. are Jewish. So that is 1 SD, not 2, still big.

    Rich people in developing countries become so due to nepotism and the like. If the country isn’t basically Jewish, and especially if there are no Jews at all, Jews are not going to be the billionaires there. And yet they will have billionaires even if the country is full of numbskulls because of natural resources, utility companies, and so on.

    In the U.S. every group has a chance, a reasonably equal chance in my opinion, but at least a chance. So the ethnicity has meaning and you can ask Why?

    The 2 percent figure for Jews is a guess, because there is no census question for it. Pew is generally the source, 2.2 percent, which combines self-identified religious-ancestral Jews and self-identified atheist-ancestral Jews. It excludes ancestral Christian Jews who practice Judaism (there are more than you think!) and it excludes ancestral Jews who practice Christianity. (I’m not sure where Christians officially “converted” to Judaism fall in Pew’s scheme.) When you add up all four varieties of Pew Jews, it exceeds 4 percent of the population.

    Yes, Dreyfus is obviously a famous Jewish bourgeois family in France – it was centre of the 19th century Dreyfus Affair.

    A legal case against one representative of this family – Alfred Dreyfus – was the antisemitic cause célèbre of 19th century Europe.

    Margarita Dreyfus received the name from her second marriage (her original name is Bogdanova) – she is just a Cinderella story.

    I misreported a little in my comment.

    She says her parents were killed in a train catastrophe, but in reality she grew up in the orphanage as her parents were imprisoned multiple times for belonging to robbery gangs and hooliganism.

    Finally, after her mother had many imprisonments, her grandfather informed to the police that his daughter stole a clock from their buildings, and she (her mother) was sent to a prison colony, and died a few months after leaving that prison colony.

    Margarita graduated from a school for orphan children, then technical institute and worked as a waitress. In the 1980-s , she married a Swiss driver called Gerspacher, emigrated to Switzerland, and then divorced him, and married the French billionaire in 1992, who died, and she inherited his business: girl from an orphanage is now one of the most powerful businesswomen in the world with almost $10 billion.

    Jewish genius is an ever declining phenomenon in both the artistic and scientific realms. As the former goes, Jews no longer dominate the ranks of literatteurs, conductors, musical performers, composers etc. with anywhere near the statistical disproportion they once did. As the latter goes, your common gamut of Perelman’s, Schwarz’s and Rosenfeld’s are being rapidly displaced by Shu’s, Chen’s and Zhai’s at competitions like the International Mathematics Olympiad. The Jewish breeding patterns which engendered Ashkenazi greatness appear to be dissipating. Politically, in the West, Jews are actively undermining the hand which feeds them. Geopolitically, Jewish influence will flounder under the ascendancy of rising, amoral powers commanding vastly greater populations which are indifferent to the Jewish project. Five hundred years from now, in broader historical relief, Jewish success from 1800 to today will be viewed like Nazi military success at the beginning of WWII, as the transient propulsion of a people punching above their weight, doomed to revert to the mean.

  55. Jews have been over-represented in many fields in past 100-150 years. They are in a great creative historical phase, similar to Greeks from 600-200 BC, Italians from 1300-1600, English 1600-1800, Germans from 1730-1930 (and earlier & later, too, for all groups).

    Always there is a group that somehow sticks out. For instance, within Western culture, it is evident that fascinating corpus of written word can be read, from c. 1750 to 1850 in English, French, German, and not so much in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian or Russian. Why is this so, we don’t know (except for Russian, which was not fully codified until Karamzin and Pushkin). We don’t know why other great historical cultures (Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Arab, Persian,..) don’t have much to offer in that period.

    It seems that there are periods of brilliance for all significant historical cultures- and then, dryness.

    As for Jews, they are even more present in the area of violin virtuosi in past 100 years & now, where they are c. 50-80% of the most acclaimed violinists. Why is it so? I don’t know. Why are they not nearly represented in visual arts (which, by the way, barely exist from the 1930s)?

    I don’t have a problem with any ethnicity being successful in money making; just, something I do have a problem with is Jewish anti-white activism on the part of these rich Jews, the best exemplified by Soros. Why are rich white Gentiles like Gates or Koch not only inactive, but even worse- very active in dismantling historical American nation & European peoples’ nation states?

I absolutely do, however, find something very wrong with the situation we have now in which organizations such as the ADL and the $PLC yield the immense power that they do, basically serving as the arbiters and regulators of acceptable public discourse. And the fact that the Zionist State– a foreign entity— is able to wield the immense influence over U.S. policy and politics that it does not seem kosher to me.

    I think if wealth is an indicator of high IQ, then we just have to look at this as evidence that there is a genetic factor somewhere in all of this.

    Just like admissions into elite colleges shows a similar pattern.

    Even in NYC most of the White kids admitted into the screened science/tech high schools used to be Jewish until they were driven out by political correctness and now probably attending either private schools or a Yeshiva.

    AND in spite of what many say about Israel, it is pretty clear that they are not surviving (thriving) in that part of the world just because of US military support as the US has supported many countries that have not achieved even a small part of Israeli accomplishments.

    I think even this persecution of them over the centuries is probably linked to their IQ as, let’s face it, jealousy of others’ wealth, accomplishments is a strong motive for persecution.

    We see this in the reaction of most of the world to our own accomplishments. Western civilization is actually a far younger civilization than the civilizations in places like China, India, South America and even Africa; yet we have achieved much more than all of them put together and the jealousy is rampart. That’s what all of these attacks of ‘wokeness’ are and even the vast exaggerations of the impact of colonialism on the conditions of these places today. Actually colonialism was probably a benefit to most of these other civilizations as it gave them a standard of living they would never have achieved on their own which, of course, most of them are now busily destroying. Perfect example let’s look at the condition of Africa and South America. India is barely hanging on by a thread economically and I don’t know where China will be in a few years if the US doesn’t begin trading with them again.

    So although many will hate me saying this, we have to admit that there is probably a genetic link to high IQ and greater wealth traveling through the Jewish peoples…

    Jews are 2 percent of Americans, not 0.2 percent. I think the best metric is what percentage of Americans (and citizens of Americanesque countries) are Jewish, not what percent of Africans, Indians, et al. are Jewish. So that is 1 SD, not 2, still big.

    This is poking at what i think is a critical point here.

    Jews–the Ashenazi–seem to be about 2/3 or 3/4 of an SD above generic white Anglo-Germanic gentiles in IQ. (110-112 seems to be the ballpark–skewing heavily verbal and math-numeric with nothing much going on in visio-spatial.) Plus they have some other psychological traits–not all pleasant–that are useful for business success, and their Jewish cultural package, and of course connections and ethnic-nepotism. All this seems to be worth about an order of magnitude boost in business success relative to generic white gentiles.

    Where the other order of magnitude comes from is two things:
    1) the smaller, is that a lot of Jewish sharpies were around for the distribution/looting of the old Soviet Union
    but
    2) much larger, is that Jews were in America, which was the richest nation in the world by the dawn of the 20th century (i.e. before most Jews even showed up), came out of the War with 40% of the world’s GDP, was far and away it’s center of technology and innovation and has a freer or individualist system (compared to say Japan or Germany) more conducive to entrepreneurship and accumulating individual wealth.

    Take a guy like Bloomberg. Obviously a smart, hustling guy who saw a market opportunity and devised a scheme to get rich filling it. However, Bloomy would be nothing, a nobody, but for the fact that Wall Street is the financial center attached to big sprawling, high-IQ, productive, gentile America.

    Tremendous good fortune for Bloomberg, allowing him to make a great fortune. But is Bloomberg actually loyal to the vast millions of white gentile Americans who’ve made his wealth possible? No, he is not.

    Bloomberg’s case–and the others like it–answers the “why do Jews punch two orders of magnitude better?” question.

    America has been very, very, very good to the Jews. But have Jews been very good for America? No.

    No this is about minoritarianism. Jews sneering contempt and attacks on white gentiles’ traditional norms, values, culture and their very existence as peoples and nations.

    While some Jewish Australians are on the rich list, nearly one in five live in poverty

    …..
    Seven-dollar hot lunches and free entertainment.

    That’s the strategy Rachel Tanny is employing at the organisation Connections, Opportunities, Activities (COA) in the Eastern Sydney suburb of Woollahra, which is the third-most advantaged Local Government Area in the country.

    She joined the not-for-profit as chief executive eight months ago, and now oversees a raft of services delivered to Jewish seniors and those with a disability. There’s debt counselling and shopping assistance, phone calls for lonely individuals and Kosher Meals on Wheels. And, of course, the bi-weekly lunches in Woollahra, where clients come for the meal and stay for the dancing.

    “Because there is a sense of affluence in much of the Jewish community, there’s a lot of stigma attached to financial hardship,” says Ms Tanny.

    “There are a large number of people in the community experiencing [hardship], but it’s not well-known because they try their best to hide it.

    “For example, most of our Meals on Wheels recipients don’t want people to know that they’re receiving it and to try to remove that stigma, as an organisation, we provide financial assessments which are all confidential and we reduce our prices accordingly.”

    Indeed, five of the 10 richest Australians are Jewish, according to the Australian Financial Review’s annual list.

    Vic Alhadeff, the chief executive of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, says it’s understandable that high-achievers make headlines, but there’s another statistic that’s often overlooked.

    “Almost 20 per cent of the Jewish community of Australia lives below the poverty line,” he says.

    In what sense is he disloyal? By current Democrat standards he is conservative and most of the other Democrat candidates are far more “disloyal”.

    America has been very, very, very good to the Jews. But have Jews been very good for America? No.

    Bloomberg didn’t obtain his wealth by theft. Bloomberg developed and built a computerized system to provide real-time market data, financial calculations and other financial analytics to Wall Street firms. Remember this is 1981 when not everyone (actually no one) had an internet connection that provided real time market data and few even had PCs. Presumably the value created by the Bloomberg terminals (far) exceeded the (high) cost of their rental or else the Wall St. houses would not have paid for them. So I would say that at least Bloomberg was good for America in that he added to the nation’s overall wealth (and not just his own). Not to mention the 20,000 (largely non-Jewish) people who are employed by Bloomberg. Was Jonas Salk good for America? Hyman Rickover? Edward Teller?

    There is plenty of evidence that Democrats are openly plotting to INCREASE non-white numbers but none that they are plotting to DECREASE the # of white people other than thru natural attrition.

    That natural attrition will look a lot like, oh, a plant that slowly withers due to lack of water, won’t it?

    I’m not counting policies such as those that cause white people to despair and take their OWN lives or OD on fentanyl.

    Why are you not counting such policies?

    While I don’t applaud Adams’ misojudaism, I understand it & to a degree I agree with him. Henry Adams was simply reacting to an alien body threatening the very fabric of his historical identity & culture, something which is perfectly natural & normal (when we put aside all exaggerations, myopia, prejudice, stereotypes about bankers etc.)

    Because most specifically US Jewish socio-cultural activism – not contribution to yet not open disciplines in humanist & social sciences, exact sciences etc.- was, whether one likes it or not, subversive of historical American culture. I don’t think in terms of conspiracy, but it seems to be the case of incompatibility of temper/Weltanschauung. Other European ethnics like Poles, Italians, Hungarians, Greeks, Irish (are they ethnics?)..simply didn’t behave that way.

    In a telling story, such a good man like Paul Gottfried openly confesses that he despised WASPs because of their lack of will to remain dominant & domineering. This remarkable honesty needs some unpacking: Gottfried says he loathed WASPs. Why? Because of their Genteel tradition, perceived weakness & super-high tolerance toward Jewish upstarts. Instead of gratitude & loyalty, Gottfried (who is, ultimately, a good guy)- feels contempt. I can’t find this video just now, but it exists.

    If this is not hostility toward an exceptionally generous host-I don’t know what it is.

    Astor, Rockefeller, them too! Ideas? America’s Anglo-Saxon Founders took care of the political ideas, if you refer to men of letters there’s Mencken and Vonnegut.

    Clear that a lot of billions were made (siphoned off) in the rape of Soviet Union economy. Thank you Larry Summers.

    One of the richest Jewish individuals on the list, Zuckerberg, ripped off the idea for Facebook from the people who had hired him to work for them! How about that for loyalty.

    Lots of thieves on this list and more a reflection of immorality and an ability to “pull a fast one” than creativity and genius.

    And Nobel Prizes in the hard sciences require being in a position with adequate funding to make those seminal discoveries. If you think ethnic networking plays no role in getting access to research dollars you are sadly very mistaken.

    Sorry Steve.

    I acknowledge Jewish talent and hard work. But ethnic networking and an ability to cast ethics aside in pursuit of personal ambition is at much at work here as talent.

    I have the feeling that you are completely misunderstanding what he is saying.

    In the 1st half of the 20th century, American Jewish culture was very assimilationist. All the Hollywood movie moguls, Irving Berlin, Jack Bennie, George Burns, Groucho Marx – they all took pains to project themselves as Americans and not Jews. American Jews were as patriotic as anyone during WWII. American Jewish scientists looked upon WASP scientists as their mentors and role models – there were no Jewish role models to begin with because Jews had been largely absent from science in the shtetl. The call letters of the Yiddish radio station in NY was WEVD in honor of Eugene V. Debs. My late father in law was named Eugene for the same reason. Philip Roth said that in his almost 100% Jewish high school, not one boy wore a kippah – Orthodoxy was for your grandpa.

    American Jews only lost confidence in American civilization when American civilization lost confidence in itself. American now is like a fatherless child.

    BTW – I like the attempt to re-brand anti-Semitism as misojudaism. Much better to rebrand. I like miso soup.

    Hi Fellow Jew Jack,

    There is no denying that Jews like Bloomberg, Salk et al have contributed to America through their achievements.

    I think the point Dad is making is that Jews tend to use the wealth they create in ways that advance Jewish interests at the expense of American Gentile interests. The net effect of Jewish wealth creation is negative for non-Jewish Americans.

    Endless agitation for non-White immigration, $38 billion in aid while Americans hurt, media control pushing anti-White narratives, “White Privilege”, manipulation to send America’s sons to get limbs blown off in mideast sh*tholes to defend Israel — the list goes on and on.

    We Jews would be well served to recognize how good we have it in America, focus on benefits to America instead of to our own group and stop imagining our White Gentile countrymen as potential Cossacks.

    Shalom.

    The immediacy of WWII as a historical event is being kept alive by Boomers. It gets weaker with every subsequent generation. Moreso given the cultural dilution of the West. Pretty soon it will just be one war among many – of little more consequence than the Napoleonic wars. The history of your people is not special, absent the concerted efforts of your tribe to make it so. People grow tired of special pleading after a while.

    Paul Gottfried openly confesses that he despised WASPs because of their lack of will to remain dominant & domineering.

    You are correct in claiming that Gottfried says this; I’ve watched the same interview myself. However, it is a perhaps unfortunate, but nevertheless quite normal reaction, to feel contempt for someone in a position of authority who fails to decisively exercise that authority.

    We will excuse and even sympathize with those who dither and demean themselves with excessive self-criticism if they are at or below our same level, but we won’t tolerate it in someone deemed to be our superior. We’re primates, after all, and when the betas smell weakness, they start plotting an overthrow.

    There’s a very nice line in the book “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” in which Jim Williams, the social arriviste from a decidedly humble background, recounts with a hint of malice the slow financial and hierarchical decline of Savannah’s aristocrats, who are eventually “left with nothing but their lovely manners.”

    “Anyway,” he sniffs, “nobility is better.”

    Gottfried describes, as far as I can remember, a situation where his fellow Jews are, among themselves, expressing open hostility & contempt for WASPs for letting them to the higher echelons of power & academia.

    So, I guess, WASPs should have restricted those Jews, impose quotas & keep them down. Then, Jews like Gottfried’s acquaintances would whine about how they’re oppressed. Gottfried was describing open antagonism (open in intra-Jewish discourse) of those supposedly assimilated Jews to the WASP high culture, manners & everything that went with it as such, not some dispassionate analysis of a weakened class.

    The class, WASPs, was friendly & open; Gottfried’s interlocutors interpreted this as a weakness. This is similar to behavior of a neurotic wife who will “respect” her husband only if he beats her (probably she’ll adore him for that). Gottfried should have had more moral maturity in those days.

    This is just propaganda.
    Sure you can find Jews in Australia who for some reason live on welfare but that’s because they choose to.
    The Australian Jewish Community looks after it’s own :- every Jew in Australia can attend a ( well financed ) Jewish school without fees if the family is broke; and every Jewish oldie can get a free place in a ( well financed ) Jewish retirement home if poor
    All those Jewish billionares need their tax deductions

    I got your first reference right off, had to look up the second one. I think “You’re So Vain” was about one of Ms. Simon’s boyfriends, non-Jewish, I think a WASP. (Who else would walk into a party like he was walking into a yacht?)

    Catholic isn’t a Race.

    No, but there is a correlation between religion and ethnicity among Catholics. It’s one-to-many rather than one-to-one.

    If someone is Catholic, they’re not Jewish, because Baptism excludes them from membership in the Jewish community. (That’s not to say that their picture will be turned to the wall.)

  128. > #116 Hasso Plattner, 74, (software) with $12.7 billion

    I couldn’t find anything on Mr Plattner being Jewish or of Jewish descent.

    https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hasso_Plattner via Google translate:
    »Hasso Plattner grew up in Berlin-Grunewald and Konstanz. His father Horst Plattner (1918-2001) was an ophthalmologist who came from Sibiu in Transylvania (Romania). Plattner studied after graduation in 1963 at the University of Karlsruhe communications engineering. He is married, has two children and lives in Potsdam-Babelsberg.«

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sibiu
    »Sibiu was initially a Daco-Roman city called Cedonia.[5] The town was refounded by the Saxons (German) settlers brought there by the king Géza II of Hungary. …
    After World War I, when Austria-Hungary was dissolved, Sibiu became part of Romania; the majority of its population was still ethnic German (until 1941) and counted a large Romanian community, as well as a smaller Hungarian one. Starting from the 1950s and until after 1990, most of the city’s ethnic Germans emigrated to Germany and Austria. Among the roughly 2,000 who have remained is Klaus Johannis, the current President of Romania. «
