Cashing In: Ben Bernanke to Have Dinner with Eight Top Hedge Funders

Former Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke is booked for an intimate dinner next week Wednesday to address eight masters of the universe at Le Bernardin, we hear, including hedge funders David Einhorn, Louis Moore Bacon, Larry Robbins and Mike Novogratz, reports NyPo.

Sources said Bernanke’s expected to make about the same $250,000 fee he commanded at a recent Abu Dhabi speech.

A spy said topics would include “the 2008 banking crisis, the current state of affairs in Washington and monetary policy” at the dinner hosted by trading firm BTIG, which was co-founded by former Goldman Sachs partner Steven Starker.

Bernanke will reportedly get another $300,000 for an upcoming talk in Turkey this year.
