How Tony Blair Used His Connections to Get Rich

Since stepping down as British prime minister in 2007, Tony Blair "has tried to fashion a second act as a globe-trotting do-gooder... But at home, enthusiasm for such endeavors has been tempered by criticism of his equally ambitious business enterprises, through a private consultancy called Tony Blair Associates, whose clients have included controversial monarchs and autocrats," the New York Times reports.

"In many ways, Mr. Blair faces a perception problem. Years into his postpolitical makeover, confusion lingers about what particular hat he wears at any given time... His various roles often intersect with polarizing figures, which has only given the press more fodder."
