Amazing how some people sleep at night.

Economist Paul Krugman — who frequently uses his New York Times column to preach that rich people and Republicans are oppressing the poor with their capitalist policies — has been hired by City University of New York, which will pay him $225,000 to work on the ironically-named income inequality initiative.
His contract with CUNY was first reported by Gawker. He will be paid $225,000 for two semesters of work each year, or about $25,000 per month.
He is not required to teach during his first year of employment. Instead, the darling liberal pundit will be handsomely compensated for making media appearances and garnering publicity for CUNY’s Luxembourg Income Study Center.
