Reading the Wealth Report I stumbled across The $3 Billion Payday
...hedge-funder John Paulson, who made somewhere between $3 billion and $4 billion last year. That's right, between $3 billion and $4 billion. In one year. To put that in perspective, Mr. Paulson's salary equals the incomes of 62,500 Americans earning the national median income of $48,000 a year. It also puts him instantly among the top 150 richest Americans, as measured by Forbes. Mr. Paulson made more in one year than The Donald has made in a lifetime.
I have tried to graph hedge fund manager income in the past but it is difficult to compare income of $50,000 with $3 billion on the same graph. Alternatively, I have compared CEO and hedge fund managers.
