    Hillary Clinton Rakes in Big Money from Goldman Sachs in One Week

    Former Secretary of State, and presumed 2016 presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton spoke at two separate Goldman Sachs events in the past week (on October 24, and then again on October 29), for a cool $200,000 per speech, her normal fee according to Politico and the New York Times. $400,000ónot a bad payday for the former First Lady.
    Alec Torres of the National Review Online reports that, on the 24th, Clinton spoke for the AIMS Alternate Investment Conference, a closed event held exclusively for Goldman clients. AIMS is an annual conference that explores strategic models and new products available to financial advisers. Pretty exclusive stuff.
    This Tuesday, Clinton spoke to the Builders and Innovators Summit, about entrepreneurship, and how best to help investors expand their own personal business models. According to Politico, which covered the event, Clinton conducted a question-and-answer session with Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein. The investment giant declined to comment on the subject of Clintonís talk, or why she in particular was invited to the events.
    The two speaking engagements follow Clintonís visits to private-equity firms KKR this past July, and the Carlyle Group just last month . At KKRís annual investor meeting in California, Clinton was on hand to answers questions from Harry Kravis, the filmís co-founder, on the subjects of the Middle East, Washington, and politics. At the Carlyle Group, Clinton is said to have made a speech to shareholders that was moderated by the groupís founder David Rubenstein.
    Details about those talks have been kept similarly under wraps, but the $200,000 engagement price means it's been payday with pretty easy hours for Clinton since the summer.
