    Rich-phobia?

    We know xenophobia means "visceral hatred toward foreigners" or "irrational horror caused by foreigners". Is there a word or phrase which means "Visceral hatred toward the rich"?

    I can't find one in this huge list:

    There is this, though:
    Fear of Money- Chrometophobia or Chrematophobia.

    I cannot think of one in English but Futterneid in German may be rather close to what you are looking for. Uli may be able to help.

    I never knew you could become phobic about $$$.
    Interesting....
    This is one of those things I don't have to worry about. For sure.
