The Richest Man In Babylon


The Books revolves around stories shared by rich and successful individuals from Babylon which was one of the richest cities of it’s time. Many kings tried to attack the city but were unsuccessful. As the Huge walls of Babylon protected it from such attacks. Such was the forward thinking of their kings.

“Our prosperity as a nation depends upon the personal financial prosperity of each of us individuals.”

This motto led the king to have the richest man in Babylon give tips to the citizen so everyone can make enough money and use it to prosper themselves and finally the city.

Thus The Seven Cures Of Lean Purse were Put Forth.

The Richest Man in Babylon


This book is based on Babylonian wisdom. Apparently, they found some tablets with written inscription on it. When deciphered it contained some age old wisdom on saving money, investing and creating wealth. George S. Clason has written a book in it. All nice points to follow – save 10% of your income, invest it with the help of experienced money managers, make money work for you, spend only so much.

Nobody does that, banks and financial institutions are doing that. Towards the end there is a good section on becoming debt free which is quite good – save 10% of your income, spend only 70% of the income and use the balance 20% to repay all the debts you have…
