Our prosperity as a nation depends upon the personal
financial prosperity of each of us as individuals.
This book deals with the personal successes of each
of us. Success means accomplishments as the result
of our own efforts and abilities. Proper preparation
is the key to our success. Our acts can be no wiser
than our thoughts. Our thinking can be no wiser than
our understanding.
This book of cures for lean purses has been termed
a guide to financial understanding. That, indeed, is
its purpose: to offer those who are ambitious for financial
success an insight which will aid them to
acquire money, to keep money, and to make their
surpluses earn more money.
In the pages which follow, we are taken back to
Babylon, the cradle in which was nurtured the basic
principles of finance now recognized and used, the
world over.
To new readers, the author is happy to extend the
wish that its pages may contain for them the same. GET YOUR COPY NOW

Money is the medium by which earthly success
is measured.
Money makes possible the enjoyment of the
best the earth affords.
Money is plentiful for those who understand
the simple laws which govern its acquisition.
Money is governed today by the same laws
which controlled it when prosperous men
thronged the streets of Babylon, six thousand
years ago.

investors about their finances? A whole lot if it’s
George Clason’s delightful set of parables that ex –

graduate or anyone who seems baffled by the world
of finance and a wonderful, refreshing read for even
the most experienced investor.”—Los Angeles Times
