If Top Tax Rate Was Returned To 90%

John Paulson would "only" take home $490 million last year. A single year.

The 25 highest-paid hedge fund managers took home a combined $22.07 billion in 2010, according to a industry magazine's survey released Friday.

And, believe it or not, that's actually down nearly 13% from the prior year, when they earned $25.33 billion, AR Magazine said.

AR said pack leader was John Paulson, who earned a record $4.9 billion. That means he was making around $155 per second last year.
