Keynes was a pretty successful inside dealer.

Yes, I remember reading something about that but didn't he nearly come unstuck at some time - or am I confusing him with Churchill? (Heh! Memory, where did I put it down ...)

Churchill almost went bust. I'm not sure about Keynes. The best Keynes story I know was about his explaining his investment in grain futures to a fellow Fellow of King's.
Fellow: "But Maynard, what if you have to take delivery?"
Keynes: "It will fit in the chapel".

Love it!
