Sigrid Rausing On Money, Addiction And Collective Farming

Posted at 7:54AM Friday 16 May 2014

Sigrid Rausing is one of the wealthiest women in Britain. Quite how wealthy, she declines to say. 'I'm not telling you,' she says firmly when you ask – knowing even as you do that she will find the question tiresome, presumptuous and, though she is much too polite to say so, vulgar. Rausing is a philanthropist, a human rights activist, and the owner of the publishing house Granta and its literary magazine of the same name. As the benefactor of one of Britain's largest private charitable trusts she is responsible for the dispensation of some £22 million a year.
