It's a Great Job -- If You Can Get It

It's good to be the king!
A Moroccan magazine has taken the unprecedented step of publishing details of King Mohammed VI's salary.

The French-language magazine Tel Quel says the monarch earns less than a typical company director in the developed world, under $45,000 a month. The annual expenses of the royal court are said to be around $250m.

King Mohammed is noted for his attempts to modernize the country and his work to alleviate poverty in his nation have earned him the title of "guardian of the poor."
