How much can academic economists make?

Much, much more (by about 3x) than I ever imagined. Courtest of WaPo are the financial disclosures of the members of the CEA (before the mid-term elections):

Christina Romer: $232K
Cecilia Rouse: $301K
Austan Goolsbee: $465K

Note: Figures are rounded, and only include salaries.
