Jump To Bill Clinton's Stats
William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton served as the United States 42nd President from his inauguration in 1992 until he was replaced by George W. Bush in 2000. Although not a millionaire when he took the office of POTUS, he has moved up the ranks in the money department with a growing net worth of $155,662,000. He commands generous speaking honorariums northward of $100,000. His wife, Hillary Clinton, provided the grist of their previous income, but it’s Bill now who is raking in millions.
In 1978 at 32-years-old, Clinton was elected Governor of Arkansas, then the youngest governor in the country. Being governor in one of the poorest states in the union only paid him $35,000 dollars a year, but his future earning power would more than make up for these humble financial beginnings.
He graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C. with a Bachelors of Science in Foreign Service, and on graduation won a Rhodes Scholarship to attend University College, Oxford in England. After his fellowship studies ended, he attended Yale's law school, earning a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree and met his future wife Hillary.
Although his wife Hillary was the early bread winner, Bill’s charismatic appeal now brings in millions as the Speaker-in-Chief around the world. He earned $41 million speaking to groups and corporations in the six years after retiring from the presidency, with his standard fee being between $100,000 to $150,000 per engagement. Beside those fees, he collected a pretty penny authoring a book post his service as Commander-in-Chief.
