DSK Making €200K a Month

You just can't keep a good man down. Dominique Strauss-Kahn may be through with politics, but high-rollers are still willing to pay good money for his advice. His consulting firm is making €200,000 euros a month. Although DSK is the only employee other than his driver, who is paid about €1,800 a month, he took a salary of only €7,500 a month last year. Presumably the remainder of his honoraria is being invested wisely, perhaps in the Cayman Islands or one of the other tax havens he ought to know a great deal about as former head of the IMF.

Two words: Legal expenses.

What a relief! I was so worried that he would become ordinary.... But €200k a month is even more than lawyers could justify.

Being a "bad boy" obviously pays!
