When I was a grad student at Princeton, Phil Anderson had a number of students (Zhou Zou, Ted Hsu, Joe Wheatley, ...) who worked on RVB theory. They all eventually left physics for Wall Street. Phil used to joke that they were all making more money than him!
I just learned that Ted Hsu is now a member of parliament in Canada!
I saw this in an article in Physics Today that raises concerns about changes in funding direction for physics in Canada.
There is also an interview with him on the Physics Today site.
