2011.12六级阅读:女性比男性的优势

Women may be doing better than men in the broader economy, but they're still under-represented at the very top.

从更广泛的经济层面来看,女性的表现可能比男性出色。但相比男性,登上富人阶层最顶层的女性仍然不多。

As we've written before, the number of women on the Forbes list of richest Americans has fallen by half since 1986. And of the 1,000 people on Britain's Rich List, only 105 are women. It seems more likely that cet6w.comll become President before a woman tops any of the world's rich lists (the former being far more important than the latter).

正如我们之前写过的,登上福布斯最富有的美国人排行榜的女性数量自1986年以来下降了一半。登上英国富豪榜的1000人中,只有105个是女性。似乎女性成为美国总统比女性登顶世界任何一个富豪榜的可能性要大(当然前者的重要性远比后者来得大)。

Yet now comes news that the richest cet6w.comthe world may one day soon be a woman. More specifically, an Australian woman.

但现在传来消息说,一个女人可能很快会成为全球最富有的人。更具体地说,是一个澳大利亚女人。

According to a report from Citigroup cited in the Australian press, mining heiress Georgina 'Gina' Rinehart is 'on course to overtake' Carlos Slim as the richest cet6w.comthe world if commodity prices keep rising.

据澳大利亚媒体援引花旗集团(Citigroup)cet6w.com果大宗商品价格继续上涨,采矿业女继承人乔治娜•吉娜•莱因哈特(Georgina "Gina" Rinehart)可能取代卡洛斯•斯利姆(Carlos Slim)成为世界上最富有的人。

The report, which mainly looks at 400 of the world's top mining projects, says that Ms. Rinehart's three coal and iron ore projects are among the 10 most promising mining projects in the world, and could catapult her to the top of the rich heap.

在全球顶级采矿项目中,这份报告主要研究了其中400个项目。报告说莱因哈特的三个煤炭和铁矿石项目位居全球前10cet6w.com矿项目之列。凭借这三个项目莱因哈特可能成为全球首富。


An Australian business website said that if Ms. Rinehart's private company -- Hancock Prospecting - were publicly traded, she could have a current net worth of $30 billion, putting her in the top 10 globally. Based on the mine outputs and commodity prices, her annual profits could reach $10 billion a year and her net worth could approach $100 billion, according to the analysis.

澳大利亚的一个财经网站说,如果莱因哈特的私人公司Hancock Prospecting公开上市的话,她目前的资产净值可能达到300亿美元,可以跻身全球十大富豪之列。据分析,基于矿山产出以及大宗商品价格,cet6w.com到100亿美元,她的资产净值可能达到1,000亿美元。

Ms. Rinehart would make for an interesting world leader in wealth. Her dad, who founded the company, was an eccentric, swashbuckling prospector. Ms. Rinehart won control of the mining empire after a bitter family feud with her stepmother, a Filipina nurse.

莱因哈特可能成为财富世界的一个有趣领袖。她的父亲创建了Hancock Prospecting。其父是一个脾气古怪、恃强凌弱的探矿者。在和继母(一位菲律宾护士)长期激烈的家庭斗争之后,莱因哈特赢得了这个采矿帝国的控制权。

Ms. Rinehart is famously reclusive cet6w.comly given a few interviews in her life. That may change, of course, if she takes the title from Mr. Slim.

莱因哈特出了名的深居简出,此生只接受过少数采访。当然,如果她取代斯利姆成为全球首富,这种情况可能改变。

Do you think cet6w.comll ever be the richest cet6w.comthe world? Why aren't there more women on the rich lists?

你认为女性有朝一日会成为全球首富吗?为什么没有更多的妇女登上富豪榜?
