Money Lessons from Scrooge


When Charles Dickens wrote “A Christmas Carol” in 1843, he was driven as much by financial desperation as inspiration! The story met with instant success, selling 6,000 copies within a week, and it has never been out of print since.

Dickens wrote the classic tale to pay off crippling debt. Though this story was written more than 150 years ago…People were still making bad decisions about debt. Are we any better off today-Have we learned anything from 150 years of history? Let’s hope so and I look forward to brining you the very best in Cash Flow ideas for the year 2007. This article was sent to me by a reader and the author is Candace Bahr, who is the co-founder of Women’t Institute for Financial Education. I will attempt to get a copy of the entire article-it was clever! Update: Read the article-Learn from the lessons of Scrooge.
