Alan Greenspan just can’t stop working. The 81-year-old former head of the Federal Reserve has signed a consulting contract  with PIMCO, the Newport Beach, Calif.-based bond behemoth, according to The New York Times. .

The contract calls for Greenspan to have closed-door meetings with executives at the firm quarterly. He will also hold conference calls and videoconferences, the Times quoted “an associate with knowledge of the deal” as saying.

Greenspan’s work doesn’t stop there. He has said he will enter consultancy contracts with other firms as well—although none that compete directly with PIMCO—and commands up to $150,000 for speaking engagements. For his upcoming book, which will be published in September, he received an $8.5 million advance.
