Not most of us would associate the professional traits of a Hoarder, moneylender, and tax dodger with William Shakespeare.

Researchers claim William Shakespeare was callous businessman-global-annal

This may be shocking news for all Shakespeare fans but according to a group of academic researchers, Shakespeare had all these traits in him. The researchers argue that the novelist was a callous businessman who made lots of money hoarding grain during a famine.

Researchers at Aberystwyth University in Wales disagree with the findings saying that we can’t fully understand Shakespeare till we study his overlooked business ability.

“Shakespeare the grain-hoarder has been redacted from history so that Shakespeare the creative genius could be born,” the researchers said in their research paper. The paper is expected to be delivered in May at the Hay festival in Wales.
