How Ex-Presidents and Prime Ministers Make their Money

After a few years of leading the world and receiving free rent, some ex-presidents and prime ministers go on to other, more lucrative careers. Harry Truman only had his $112 a month army pension when he left office, so he rolled up his sleeves and went to work writing his memoirs. He was still in such poor financial straits that he became the first recipient of a presidential pension. Other world leaders did much better. mental_floss takes a look at what some of them do for money now that they are out of office. Link

As much as we think our presidents are corrupt..other countries let their leaders get away with tons of illegal crap..there's a bunch of b/millionaire leaders around the world.

I know that a lot of ex-presidents, vice-presidents, and PM's all do conferences where they end up being noted guest speakers. That's how they make money these days. That and book deals.
