Hard times

My mom found an old book of wisdom and scrapbook cuttings in a local store. She bought it for me. Here’s one entry:

Why hard times come can easily be explained, according to Roger W. Babson, leading American financial authority. Mr Babson a few years ago said, “Every business depression has been caused by monkeying with either the Ten Commandments or the multiplication table.”

The copyright of the book is 1954. His wisdom is timeless.

Another entry talked about the “rising national debt.” The author could never dream of the American national debt today.
