George Clason is best known for writing a series of informational pamphlets about being thrifty and how to achieve financial success. He started writing the pamphlets in 1926, using parables that were set in ancient Babylon. Banks and insurance companies began to distribute the parables and the most famous ones were compiled into the book The Richest Man in Babylon.

The Clason Map Company was a map company in the United States that went bankrupt in the Great Depression. It was owned by George Samuel Clason in Denver, Colorado

Clason was married twice, the first time to Ida Ann Venable and the second to Anna Burt.
