First of all, not all Jews are rich.  But if you're interested in knowing, there are two main factors.

A...Jews place a high value on education.  I was watching "My Name is Earl" a while ago, and the whiny blonde ex-wife said something like, "I want a real doctor.  A JEWISH doctor."  The same can be said for Jewish lawyers, as that is also a stereotype.  But the underlying value behind those stereotypes is education.  Graduate degrees are required for both medicine and law.  Education is probably the single most important factor.  And of course, many non-Jews have these values too, but it's more common among Jews, as it is a part of the Jewish culture (and other cultures too...I'm only speaking about the Jews now).

B...Jews have been persecuted for a loooong time.  When a group starts getting killed off, mandatorily converted to Christianity, or deported for their religion, the members of that group tend to band together to survive.  Not all groups do that, but the Jews have largely chosen to band together in the face of adversity from other groups.  So Jews have a proclivity to help each other.  Mormons have a similar philosophy on helping fellow Mormons more (that is true, believe it or not, and e.g. Romney won Utah by overwheming margins).

So...combine the two things together and Jews tend to be better at making money, as educated Jews tend to help out other Jews, and mentorship counts along with education.  But many, many other groups make more money overall, and the richest people in the world are not Jewish.  And all of this is JMHO.

The only "jew gold mine" was the one the nazis took out of their teeth and store to this day is swiss banks. Right around the time they made blankets out of the hair of dead polish in the still existing factory/museums in poland.

I attended a bar mitzvah (sp?) once and was fascinated by the traditions.  One thing I found really interesting is how may stocks, cds, and other financial products (not just good old cash) that the kid recieved from relatives, friends, and other members of his synagogue.  My friend explained to me that it is a tradition to help secure the child's financial future, ie college tuition, retirement, etc.  This particular kid recieved nearly $20,000 and we're not talking about a rich family.  It was a solid upper middle class group.  But 20k is a hell of a start for a 13 year old.

Education is right on the money but the precursor to education is the Jewish people's cunning foresight.  Jews know how they will feel and what they will want/need down the road.  The future is always on a Jew's mind and the safest bet on future is education.  Jews know now what many others know after they spend all there money or pass up a chance to excel in school.  Ingrained in the Jewish culture is foresight.

OMFG. SERIOUSLY. Everyone who said anything in this thread not in jest must immediately report for ass-kicking sensitivity training.

Saw dashrashi's LSN site. Since she seems to use profanity, one could say that HYP does not necessarily mean class or refinement.
