A chance discovery in a ledger at the Bank of England suggests the composer Handel may have been a smart financial operator. I am a bit old now for scoops, but I seem to have run into one the other day, deep behind the scenes at the Bank of England. BBC Radio 3 asked me to take part in the extensive commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the death of the great Anglo-German composer, George Frideric Handel. They wanted to know about Handel's money and how he made it, ending up with a fortune (maybe £3m in today's money) in financial times no less tumultuous than our own day. Interesting, and a programme rather different from my normal output on In Business and Global Business.
