THE RICHEST MAN IN BABYLON

Clason's essays on financial success have been around for a long time, since 1926 in fact. The stories with their truisms expounded and expanded, and their parables pointed up are set in ancient Babylon- and each one deals with money. By using a slightly modified Biblical style of writing Clason manages to create an illusion of great wisdom, dignity and authority through the people who discuss money and the rules of sound investment that have not changed in 5000 years. Business executives have made the stories familiar to a whole generation of Americans, and they will probably continue to do so.
