The Richest Man In Babylon by George S Clason
“The reason why we have never found measure of wealth. We never sought it.”
The most important factor in accumulating extraordinary wealth is the discipline of placing aside 10% of our income. The 7 rules below facilitate this discipline, makes this money work for us and places it in a safe place.
Honesty, is one of my many traits, (not so many), and being really honest, I hated The Richest Man In Babylon when I began listening to it. The book was published in 1926 and its author George S Clason purposefully tried to make the dialogue and narration sound ancient throughout the book. So here I was, a Finance graduate, listening to an old book, that wanted to sound ancient narrated in Audible by someone who was trying really hard to sound like a Medieval jester. A jester who gave up on jokes and started teaching finance to all of us, the bored peasants in the kingdom who wanted a break from Netflix.
