from the urls-we-dig-up dept
Money can’t buy happiness, but if you have enough of it, you can get all kinds of publicity (whether or not you want it). Here are just a few folks that have been named on the various “these people are rich” lists.
- Justin Bieber made $53 million last year, making him the highest paid teenager. Just wait until he starts licensing his hairdo… [url]
- James Patterson was named the world’s highest-paid author by Forbes. A Harvard professor described the experience of hearing Patterson give a talk to MBA students: “It was like listening to a can of Coca-Cola describe how it would like to be marketed.” [url]
- Politifact rates Warren Buffett’s statement that the rich have a lower tax rate than the middle class as “true.” Warren Buffett has been saying this for a while, but maybe even though he’s rich, people will listen to him, but not actually hear what he’s saying. [url]

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.
