Richard Florida Is Two Cents Shy of 170K Per Year

The good Doctor Florida earns $169,999.98. About what I estimated before the figures were released. You can read all about it right here: (link).

Keep in mind that he earns additional monies on top of that from his books, his speaking fees, his column in the Globe and Mail, and other revenue streams I can only imagine. I'd estimate about $250K per year, if not much more. And it's not like he's grinding his fingers to the bone doing much actual teaching for that $170K.

I hope he's worth it, U of T. I certainly don't think so.
