Ex Goldman Sachs Exec Greg Smith Gets $1.5 Million Book Deal

Sorry to start your Friday out like this, but we’ve got to tell you: The rich do, in fact, get richer. Greg Smith, the former Goldman Sachs executive who quit with a hilarious New York Times Op-Ed, is getting $1.5 million to write a memoir.

On Wednesday we heard that the deal was going to be about $1 million (which is absurd enough), but The New York Post reports that Hachette Book Group has agreed to pay a $1.5 advance to Smith.

Oh, and get this: that payday is about triple his old annual salary at Goldman Sachs.

USA! USA! USA!
