Alan Greenspan, the central bankers' poor relation

A survey published last week found Alan Greenspan to be the lowest paid G7 central bank head earning a mere US$ 171,900. Jean-Claude Trichet's salary, by contrast, rings in at the equivalent of US$ 341,404. But this is topped by "little" Netherlands who pay Nout Wellink $371,415. The survey suggests Mervyn King and Antonio Fazio are the best paid G7 central bankers, although France and Germany do not publish figures.
