If memory serves he was a notable beacon of incorruptibility that stood out from the rest of the corrupt officials.

Assuming compensation was somewhat similar throughout the bureaucracy at the time, the corollary would be high compensation has a positive correlation with hanky panky.

The thread's assertion would only stand IF other officials were poorly compensated.

Civil servants are highly paid and respected in the Song dynasty, with high-level civil servants in the Song dynasty being treated the best. According to 《宋史•职官志》, Bao Zheng received (blah blah how much) equivalent of 13.6 million RMB today.

The whole sum of salary does not go into his own pocket.

The budget for his office, officials like shi ye, constables, maintenance, household, uniforms, operation cost etc. are dedcuted from that amount.

As for the farm land, he had to hire helpers/ or rent out to be productive; and that is provided the land is fertile else useless.

And not every officials are treated equally. Depending where they are posted. If the county or province is prosperous, then hoseh lor. Else some ulu place, gg liao.

Surprised people never complain why he earn so much and complain about him abusing legalized corruption.
It is better to remain silent and be taken as a fool, than to speak and prove your ignorance beyond doubt.

If our dear leaders pay their own staff and all official expenses out of their own salary like Bao Gong does, then maybe we can compare the two. Otherwise it's apples and oranges.
