Filthy Rich is a male Earth pony and Diamond Tiara's father. He is introduced in the season two episode Family Appreciation Day. He is called Berry Rich in some merchandise. His names are based on the phrases filthy rich and very rich, meaning \"very wealthy\".
In the same episode, Filthy Rich appears at Sweet Apple Acres to politely confirm he will receive the first one hundred jars of zap apple jam from Granny Smith, \"as usual\". As they walk off-screen, Granny asks him how his father is doing. He is later seen giving a presentation about \"Rich's Barnyard Bargains\" to Apple Bloom's class that bores most of the class to sleep except for Twist and Diamond Tiara. He is again seen at the end of the episode sternly pushing a reluctant Diamond Tiara to Sweet Apple Acres to help other fillies sing to the water in the watering cans, part of Granny Smith's special process of making zap apple jam. Despite being a rich business pony and his daughter's mean spirit, Filthy is amicable to Apple Bloom, Granny Smith and everypony else.

\"The lives of the richest people in the world are so different from those of the rest of us, it's almost literally unimaginable. National borders are nothing to them. They might as well not exist. The laws are nothing to them. They might as well not exist.\"
The reforms spelled out in this book would incentivize good behavior in our leaders, stymie corruption, and prevent politicians from using the system (and our taxpayer dollars) to feather their filthy rich nests.
It is only by taking these steps to reform the system that we can rebuild trust in our institutions and preserve American democracy for future generations. There really is no richer inheritance we could leave them.

Jeffrey Epstein, 63, of Palm Beach, Manhattan, and the Virgin Islands is, indeed, filthy rich. One supposition on how he got so, based on unnamed sources in Filthy Rich (Little, Brown, 320 pp., ** out of four stars), is that he crafted tax-avoidance schemes for filthy rich clients.
The list of those not quite rich enough includes people who have appeared on The Forbes 400 in years past, like private-equity giants Bruce Karsh and Howard Marks of Oaktree Capital (now worth $2 billion each); Under Armour founder Kevin Plank ($1.9 billion) and LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman ($1.8 billion), who Forbes recently learned has given away $1.5 billion.
I'm a San Francisco-based Assistant Managing Editor with a focus on the world's richest people. I oversee coverage of the world's billionaires and the richest self made women in the U.S. For more than a decade I was one of two editors in charge of the massive reporting effort that goes into Forbes' annual World's Billionaires list and the annual Forbes 400 list of the richest Americans. My reporting has won several awards: In 2014, I won an Overseas Press Club award for an article I wrote about Saudi Arabian billionaire investor Prince Alwaleed bin Talal; I also won a Gerald Loeb Award with co-author Rafael Marques de Morais for an article we wrote about Isabel dos Santos, the eldest daughter of Angola's former president. Over more than two decades, reporting for Forbes has taken me to 17 countries on four continents, from the streets of Manila to palaces in Saudi Arabia and Mexico's presidential residence.
