The Richest Man in Babylon is one of my favorite books of all time. It’s so good, I read it twice in one weekend.
Babylon was one of the wealthiest cities of ancient times, because of the financial principles of its people. They recorded stories and fables with these lessons on clay tablets which were unearthed not too long ago. Those tablets are the foundation for the several stories that make up The Richest Man in Babylon.
One of my favorite principles from the book is the one we’ll be discussing today: seven cures for a lean purse.
