According to BusinessWeek

The world’s oldest continuously operating family business ended its impressive run last year. Japanese temple builder Kongo Gumi, in operation under the founders’ descendants since 578, succumbed to excess debt and an unfavorable business climate in 2006.

We’ve all heard the old maxim – clogs to clogs in three generations. The first generations earns it, the second maintains it, the third pisses it away.
