Summary
Big-spending Queensland billionaire Clive Palmer bought a football team, helped create a political party, added robot dinosaurs to a luxury golf resort and is set to recreate the Titanic. But are these just fanciful splurges or something more calculated? The reality is that Palmer uses his immense mining wealth (which some estimates put at over $6 billion) in a proactive (if sometimes eccentric) global way. His personal story is just as colourful and intriguing: Clive spent time as a child in China and writes poetry. He is well-known for attention-grabbing statements that send the media into a spin. Shortly after Clive was named a National Living Treasure, he claimed that the CIA was secretly backing green groups in a bid to kill the Australian coal-mining industry. In true Clive fashion, in May 2012 he announced that he was building a luxury cruise liner - the Titanic II - and his political feuds are legendary
