We had the chance to see Summers in person last year when he came for a speech at HEI...I wonder how much the school paid him for his speech.
According to Financial disclosure forms released by the White House Summers was paid more than $2.7 million last year in speaking fees by several troubled Wall Street firms and other organizations. He also collected roughly $5.2 million in compensation from hedge fund D.E. Shaw and made $586,996 in salary from Harvard University...The article mentioning this in the Washington Post is here.
Does this make him a bad guy? Not yet I guess. But I did notice something weird about him...I've never seen him smile or make a joke here and there...Beware of people that never smile.
