Barack Obama may have just left the White House but he’s still on everyone’s mind, and people are very curious about just how much he’s worth.
Even more, a new study indicates that the two of them stand to earn $242 million now that they’re out of the White House, mainly through speaking engagements and book sales.
These estimates are based on the post presidential lives of both the Bush and Clinton families. In fact, Bill and Hillary averaged about $210,795 per speech following their exit from the White House, which ended up totaling to $153 million for 729 speaking engagements.
In terms of books, the former president is expected to make at least $30 million in sales from his memoir, while Michelle is expected to make $10 million with her own.
So even though they may not be running the country anymore, it’s very unlikely we’ve heard the last of the Obamas!
