Imelda Marcos among Newsweek's greediest people
(abs-cbnNEWS)


Former first lady Imelda Marcos has landed in a list of “greediest people of all time” by Newsweek magazine.

Marcos is said to be among the 11 greediest individuals worldwide.

According to Newsweek, Marcos “saw it as her duty to provide ‘some kind of light, a star’ for the impoverished Filipino people over whom her husband presided.“

“So she took $5 million shopping sprees to New York and Rome, reportedly owned the world’s largest collections of gems and 3,000 pairs of shoes,” noted the magazine.

Marcos was also known for holding extravagant parties for foreign visitors during the reign of her husband, the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

The term “Imeldific” eventually stemmed from her lavish lifestyle as the word means “ostentatiously extravagant.”

Aside from Marcos, another woman made it to Newsweek’s “greediest of all time” list.

China’s Empress Dowager Cixi was also named “one of the greediest” after being the de facto leader of China for almost 50 years.

Newsweek noted that the Chinese empress had 3,000 jewelry boxes. She even used the navy’s money to “build herself a marble banquet boat, aboard which she ate 150-dish dinners with golden chopsticks.”

Meanwhile, rounding up the “greediest list” were Roman general Marcus Licinius Crassus, Genghis Khan, Pope Sixtus IV, industrialist William H. Vanderbilt, American politician William M. “Boss” Tweed, swindler Charles Ponzi, Wall Street arbitrageur Ivan Boesky, former Tyco International CEO Dennis Kozlowski, and Bernard Madoff.—with a report from dzMM

What a shame! What a shame! What a shame! It doesn't matter if you'd be the poorest in the planet, just don't have your name included in this list. What a shame for Imelda.
Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
