Bernanke To Meet With Einhorn, Bacon

Mar 28 2014 | 9:01am ET

Le Bernardin is an expensive place to eat—and even more so if you'd like Ben Bernanke to join you.

The former Federal Reserve is set to dine with eight Wall Street heavyweights in New York on Wednesday. Among the group will be Moore Capital Management's Louis Bacon, Greenlight Capital's David Einhorn, Fortress Investment Group's Michael Novogratz and Glenview Capital Partners' Larry Robbins.

Bernanke will discuss the financial crisis, monetary policy and the state of affairs in Washington, D.C., at the dinner, which was set up by brokerage BTIG, the New York Post reports. And, in addition to a meal which runs in the hundreds of dollars per person, Bernanke is expected to be paid about $250,000 for his insights.

Bernanke was paid just under $200,000 per year to lead the Fed.
