A $1.25 Million Raise For Google's Schmidt

Looks like Eric Schmidt’s new role as executive chairman of Google comes with a proper salary.

Schmidt, who once earned just $1 a year as CEO is now drawing a base salary of $1.25 million with a potential $6 million annual bonus, according to a securities filing on Tuesday.

A nice raise for Schmidt, who stepped into his new role on April 4–not that he’ll even notice it. He currently owns some 9 million shares of Google, with a market value of about $4.8 billion.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
