Dominique Strauss-Kahn tops annual list of highest-paid politicians

In 2018 it looked like the politician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (August 5) that Strauss-Kahn is the highest-paid politician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between July 2019 and July 2020, a nearly $60 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The French politician-economist has an estimated net worth of $275 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Strauss-Kahn Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Neuilly-sur-Seine Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderstrauss-Kahn - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Dominique) and a fashion line called “Dominique Strauss-Kahn Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Dominique fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
