What a great way to teach financial concepts. The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason is a classic collection of stories about how to accumulate wealth.
The Richest Man in Babylon was written in the 1920s, but it is still pertinent today. We learn the classic advice of living within our means and how to save money and never miss it.
We are told that if we earn 10 coins to only spend 9 of them and save the tenth to work for us. This is great advice.
However, one should learn to live on only eight of those coins. The first coin should go to our church or other house of worship. The second should go towards savings and the other eight to be used to support our day-to-day living. This is the idea we try to teach on our How to Manage Your Monkey blog.
The Richest Man in Babylon is taught in a very entertaining manner. We suggest that this be a part of everyone’s reading curriculum.
We give The Richest Man in Babylon all five stars. This particular version has a few, but not many, typos. We feel this is a great addition to a financial education.
