No matter where you’re trying to go—more education, better career, different city—one of the most important factors in getting there is money. Money can buy you a whole lot more than nice clothes or a new home. Money promises pleasure and power and security and glory.
That’s the story of Tyre, the ancient commercial capital of the Mediterranean world. They had great wealth and everything money could buy.
But there’s a bitter irony to the story, one that today’s commercial capital of the world—our very own city—needs to hear.
