Kiplinger's Personal Finance - Founded Because "times Will Always Be Changing"

Founded Because "times Will Always Be Changing"

W.M. Kiplinger, founder of the Kiplinger family of publications, said he founded the magazine because "The times will always be changing. Much of life and work consists of looking for the changes in advance and figuring out what to do about them." Upon initial production, the magazine was known simply as Kiplinger Magazine, changing its name to Changing Times in 1949 and acquiring its present name in 1991.

Much like Forbes magazine, ownership of the Kiplinger's franchise has been kept in the family. The current editor-in-chief is Knight Kiplinger, who succeeded his father, Austin H. Kiplinger.

Famous quotes containing the words changing, founded and/or times:

    The human condition is such that pain and effort are not just symptoms which can be removed without changing life itself; they are the modes in which life itself, together with the necessity to which it is bound, makes itself felt. For mortals, the “easy life of the gods” would be a lifeless life.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

    The spiritual kinship between Lincoln and Whitman was founded upon their Americanism, their essential Westernism. Whitman had grown up without much formal education; Lincoln had scarcely any education. One had become the notable poet of the day; one the orator of the Gettsyburg Address. It was inevitable that Whitman as a poet should turn with a feeling of kinship to Lincoln, and even without any association or contact feel that Lincoln was his.
    Edgar Lee Masters (1869–1950)

    Fear prophets ... and those prepared to die for the truth, for as a rule they make many others die with them, often before them, at times instead of them.
    Umberto Eco (b. 1932)
