Financial World was the United States' oldest business magazine before going out of business in 1998. In the magazine's later years of publication, its signature issue was the "Sports Franchise Valuation Issue". In it's last years this feature was prepared by Prof. Andrew Zimbalist who is now a contributor to Forbes Magazine.


Financial World was founded in 1902. It was purchased in 1983 by Carl Lindner, Jr. and later sold to Barry Rupp, Steve Rupp, and Timothy Draper in 1995.[1] In 1998, the magazine stopped printing and closed its business.[2]
