    Snookinomics

    Snooki was recently paid more than a Nobel Laureate to speak at Rutgers University. At the surface this seems absurd, but as the article explains, maybe she was worth it.

    Market forces are crazy if a reality tv personality is worth 32k...then again maybe I should go into Reality TV.

      I think it's more of a sad commentary on the values of our nation.

        Do I have to watch cable TV to know who this person is?

        I've lately been hearing the Snooky name, but only in one-liner jokes.

        I don't think very many Nobel winners even give talks for pay.

          welcome to society today. Getting rich is not nearly as hard as actually helping the world

            The article argued that she was worth it because of all of the publicity it brought. I don't think the saying "all publicity is good publicity" holds true for universities, but I could be wrong.
