7 financial lessons from the Richest Man in Babylon by G. S. Clason |Animated video
“The Richest Man in Babylon, the success secrets from the ancients” is the most popular publication of George S. Clason. Even if it was written and published in 1926, it is still extremely popular and relevant today:
- it is one of the first divulgation books on Financial Planning and Personal Wealth.
- In this book, we have the first written reference to the concept of “paying yourself first”. This slogan is now a mantra and golden principle in personal finance). I have extensively covered this concept with the review of the book “The automatic millionaire”, by David Bach
- With the Richest Man in Babylon Clason demonstrated being an excellent storyteller: he shared financial principles using philosophical parables set in ancient Babylon: a successful way to engage an audience.
In this animated video – a small experiment for kids – I share my takeaways from the parable called “the 7 Financial Rules of Arkad, the Richest Man in Babylon”.
