Bernanke now makes in an hour what he made in a year

Pot Of Gold

Too pricey even for Goldman Sachs ?

Ben Bernanke used to run America's central bank. Now he's making bank - charging financial gurus across the world millions to share his insight and experience.

The Daily Mail reports that Bernanke used to make $200,000 a year during his eight years as Chairman of the Federal Reserve. He can make that in a single hour now on the international speaking circuit.

He left office in February. By March, he was making up to three stops a week around the world.

Bankers from New York to Houston, Texas, to Singapore and Johannesburg, South Africa, are lining to pay Bernanke hundreds of thousand of dollars for private appearances.

But not everyone thinks his time is so valuable. The New York Times reports that Goldman Sachs and UBS both decided his fees were too high for what he was offering.
