Subject: 	Patrick Stewart on the Stratford Broker

Patrick Stewart, according to a story on NPR, from the written article, 
claims that if William Shakespeare were alive today, he might be in real 
estate.

Shakespeare made some money as a writer over the course of his career. But 
longtime Shakespearean actor Patrick Stewart notes that his real wealth 
seems to have come from owning shares in The Globe Theater, as well as a 
substantial amount of property.

"He was a capitalist, no doubt about that," Stewart says.

(Stewart also shows a basic misunderstanding of enclosure.)
