[JB note: My (granted picayune) efforts to get direct information from Professor Reich and his assistant (s?) on his salary were unsuccessful (however an initial cyber search did disclose some data) -- despite my hopes of who could be more objective for additional information on income equality and "open communications" than said Professor Facebook Reich.

In addition to his annual CU-Berkeley salary of $242,613, Professor Reich is also a popular speaker on the nation’s lecture circuit, and he commands a handsome speaking fee of $40,000 for a one-hour talk (including Q and A) plus first class travel for one or two people from California, hotel accommodations for up to two nights, ground transportation, meals and incidentals. That’s the quote I got today from one of Professor Reich’s speaking bureaus for his fee to give a presentation as part of a “university program” — it’s possible that he charges even more for corporate events. ...
