The Real Dominique Strauss-Kahn Story: We’re The Little People, He’s Not
Via Professor Bainbridge, comes this observation about one part of the Strauss-Kahn story that isn’t being emphasized:
Just note that the New York Times states that he was staying in a $3,000 a night suite and was taking a first class flight to Paris.
One more detail emerged this morning. According to the London Times, Mr Strauss-Kahn had an arrangment with Air France whereby he could just turn up and be put on the first plane. Tough luck, presumably, if you had paid for the flight with your own money and the IMF man wants your seat.
Since he was hired by the IMF in 2007, Strauss-Kahn has earned just a bit more than $440,000 per year, plus an additional $73,000 allowance, plus benefits.
All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.
