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 love $$$, only if I earned and earn them by
fair play. :)

In my book there is nothing wrong with money but other values count just the same.
