With the end of the ninetieth Oscar award ceremony, the film “the money world” has gained more and more attention. The movie is a true story, in 60s the world’s richest man Paul Gatti stingy, cold-blooded, selfish image of the people. Little is known about the animated “Grandet” is a collection of all art lovers, worthy of the name, he funded the construction of the Paul Gatti museum will open to the public free of charge: “anyone wearing shoes, you can come to watch.”
“I have 14 grandchildren and grandchildren. If I have only a penny this time, I’ll have 14 grandchildren and grandchildren who have been kidnapped. Paul Gatti, facing the public, announced that he would never pay for his grandson’s ransom. The so-called family affection was not worth 17 million dollars in the eyes of the world’s richest man.
In 1973, Paul Gatti learned from his son that his grandson John Paul Getimis was kidnapped by Italy gangsters. The kidnappers asked the Gatti family to pay 17 million dollars in ransom. The unruly son and daughter-in-law can’t afford the ransom, and they can only ask Paul Gatti for help.
“Nothing” – in the face of public questioning, old Getty was firmly reluctant to pay the ransom, and the “century kidnapping” negotiations fell into a deadlock. The impatient kidnappers sent one of Gatti Sans’s ears and a lock of hair, and old Getty was under pressure from the public to pay a ransom of $3 million 400 thousand.
This is the American public concern about the kidnapping storm let old Gatti bear on the “miser” notoriety, in fact, his selfishness and the love of money has long been known to all americans. Old Gatti didn’t install any outside line phone in the mansion of Sutton square, there was only one coin phone. After the guests finished the dinner, they had to coin their own money to borrow the phone. Even so, old Getty often complained that the workers were stealing the phone, so they put a lock on the phone.
He will only pay the restaurant a meal of himself; he claimed to give all his lover a legacy, but will change up to 25 times, the last “handout” for those money lovers feel anger and shame; for he presided over the funeral priest until the end to confiscate his promise of reward old Gatti is living…… the American version of “grandet”.
But unlike the Grandet, his wealth is ten Grandet than the. Though Gatti oil was taken back by Texaco in 1984, the hotel owned by the Gatti family, the manor and many properties around the world still let them enjoy the status of one of the wealthiest families in the US.
In 1914, the first World War broke out, and Gatti, who graduated from University of Oxford, returned home from England. He went to Oklahoma with $500. A year later, he passed a farm land rich in oil resources, open their own oil era. By the time he was 24 years old, Gatti had become a millionaire by the time he was 24 years old.
During the depression, Gatti decisively and resolutely upstream, acquisition of other oil companies; after the end of World War II, he became the first person to sign the Treaty of oil and Middle East countries. Bravely and resolutely, he became a magic weapon in his way of doing business. In 1957, Gatti’s assets had exceeded 1 billion dollars. In that year, he ranked first in the list of American rich list listed by fate.
