Thanks to reader H E for sending me the link from the IPA announcing Mrs Rinehart's award.

BBPD@11:44 am Funny how one is more respected outside one's own country: Gina Rinehart receives award for visionary CEO of the year.
Strange never saw this mentioned in the MSM here - unlike Swan's "joke" Treasurer of the Year award. Where is the balanced, unbiased and publicly funded ABC when you need it?

 I've just had a look at the website and the lovely photo of Mrs Rinehart and I wanted to add my own congratulations and thanks to Gina for her work.

Gina Rinehart is reported to have inherited about $70million when her father the late Lang Hancock passed away.

For so many people, that would have been the end of their working life.   Feet up, invested at a safe 5% per annum, $3.5M income every year - cruise the world, support charities, have a ball.

But not Mrs Rinehart.   She has invested, re-invested, taken risks, employed people and built wonderful businesses.

I am in awe of her resilience and continued faith in doing business in Australia.   Thank God for people like Mrs Rinehart.
