Gary Shilling has an unusual hobby: he’s a beekeeper. And for years, the legendary economist has been sharing his homemade honey with clients and close friends.
Harvesting and selling honey is a notoriously money-losing business. As he explains, apiaries make their money by providing pollination services to the agriculture industry.
Shilling neither offers pollination services nor sells his honey.
Business Insider recently spent a day with Shilling at his New Jersey home…or apiary…where he showed us what bees and honey are all about.
