Doing The Math

Shorter Megan McArdle: People should punish bad cops so bad cops won't do bad things.

All our problems are solved.

Just out of curiosity--let's postulate:

10 posts per week on average, which might be generous. This week she's posted 5 times so far and it's Friday; twice on Monday and once each other day.
works 50 weeks a year, which is very generous
that's 500 posts per year.
Let's say she's paid $200,00 per year, which is probably lowballing. It might be less and having no kids helps, but she has told everyone she has plenty of money to pay off her mortgage and save retirement funds and a cash reserve.

That means she's paid, at a very very rough guesstimate, $400.00 per vacuous post.

Nice jerb if you can get it.

Of course, paying the likes of Meeegan works out nicely for the 1%. Our media is chock-full of randian messaging. Wingnut welfare is a tiny investment for them, relative to the payout.

Yes, she's cheap at the price. She should have been given diamonds for that post saying formaldehyde was just another chemical.

That would have been suitable, given diamonds are as worthless as Megan.

Conflict Megan.

Thought by some to be to be a priceless commodity, while known to others to be a worthless pebble. Megan.

Maybe they let Megan calculate her own salary. Computational errors in her favor area a specialty.
