A seriously cool telegram went up in the Kiplinger hallway today. In case you can’t read the old-timey typing, it says:

"Some people have trouble imagining Washington without air conditioning. I have trouble imagining it without the Kiplinger Washington Letter. While I couldn’t join you and Presidents Ford and Carter this evening, I didn’t want to let the opportunity pass without adding my congratulations to those you will be receiving from all around the country. The ultimate insider’s guide passes retirement age, still going strong."

Signed: Richard Nixon. (Whoa.)

All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise not from the defects of the Constitution, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.

John Adams, 1787.

In honor of Independence Day, we’re tumbling some of our favorite financial advice from the Founding Fathers. Read more quotes here. 

But I know nothing more important to inculcate into the minds of young people than the wisdom, the honor, and the blessed comfort of living within their income, to calculate in good time how much less pain will cost them the plainest stile of living which keeps them out of debt, than after a few years of splendor above their income, to have their property taken away for debt when they have a family growing up to maintain and provide for.

Thomas Jefferson, 1808.

A Primer on the Service Economy

Times are changing, that’s for sure. Kind of made us wonder what will be the big jobs of tomorrow.

FLASHBACK FRIDAY: A description of the Kiplinger office, circa 1947. We have since moved on to far classier, if somewhat controversial, digs. (The AP is one of our building-mates.)
