Robert – “I don’t need a retirement plan because all of my assets produce income.”

Time Magazine Interviewer – “Are there some people who should play it safe, do the traditional route and just pick up a house, pay the mortgage?”

Robert – “That’s probably the most dangerous thing you can do.”

The middle class, which is disappearing, are the ones who are paying the taxes.

Robert Kiyosaki’s Poor Dad’s attitude was, “I have a PhD, the government will take care of me, save your money….. But as you are saving your money the Federal Reserve is printing trillions of dollars. How stupid can you be? Invest your money for the long term in a well diversified portfolio of mutual funds. Send it straight to Wall Street so that they can pay their brokers 10 million dollar a year bonuses. How stupid does a person have to be? – wake up.

Time Magazine Interviewer – Do they teach that in college level economics classes or not?

Robert – Hell no. Absolutely not. Read Conspiracy of the Rich and understand.

Why don’t we have financial education in our schools? In 1903 John D. Rockefeller took over the financial education system by creating the general education board and since then the rich have controlled what is taught in schools. This is true for the health care system as well. How come the tax laws are different for different people? Because the rich make the rules.

There are 4 things that make 90% of the people poor:

1. Taxes (Different laws for different classes of people)

2. Debt (Education, mortgage, credit card)

3. Inflation (is a tax increase not a value of goods increase)

4. Retirement plans (401(k)s IRAs SEPs etc.) (“I would blow up the system and restart with something totally different.” – Ted Benna, “father” of the 401(k), as told to MarketWatch.com)


1. Your Personal Banking System helps reduce taxes because the dividends are earned tax free and the interest is earned tax-deferred but if accessed correctly can be used tax free also.

2. By owning your own debt, in your own banking system, you earn the interest that is otherwise leaving your circle of wealth. And you are also reusing the recaptured principal dollars as well.

3. The guaranteed growth in a personal banking system helps offset the increasing taxes called inflation.

4. You have access to tax free retirement money instead of tax deferred retirement money. Tax deferred means pay later at an ‘as-yet’ undetermined amount. Later means in the future. Have taxes ever decreased over time?

I structure personalized banking systems for business owners, individuals and not-for-profits. Paying into a 401(k) will help make you poor. Stop it. Start ‘Becoming Your Own Banker’.

 Another interview –

Robert Kiyosaki, author of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” recommends investing in real estate and commodities, but he tells Dan Mangru of Newsmax TV that silver is now his top investment.

“If you’re afraid of inflation, which you should be, I would think silver is the No. 1 investment today.”

Kiyosaki also tells Mangru why he likes real estate, “I like real estate for one reason: debt.”

Investors get no leverage buying stocks, but they do when buying real estate, Kiyosaki points out.

To be sure, “If you’re going to play the game of debt, boy you’ve got to be a lot smarter than the average bear out there,” he says.

“So real estate is a good investment if you have financial training, financial education, and you have somebody guiding you who has some experience with the whole thing.”

Kiyosaki recommends commodities to guard against inflation.

“To protect against inflation, do what the Chinese are doing,” he says. “The Chinese are buying commodities: copper, oil, gold, silver, land.”

For those who are poor, Kiyosaki has this advice: “Change what you think. . . If you’re expecting the economy to come back, I think you’re in a dream land.”

Some people believe in the following myth, he says: “This idea that the U.S. is the greatest country on earth, and Obama is here to save you, and the government is going to take care of you. That’s called socialism.”

“And I think you really better start changing your thinking, because they’re not going to save you. They’re going to save themselves.”

Investors must be self-reliant, Kiyosaki says.

“I got financially educated when I was a kid. I don’t expect anybody to take care of me. I don’t turn any money over to a 401(k). I don’t trust mutual funds. I don’t trust banks. I trust myself.”

The solution is to “get educated and get smart with my money,” he says. “We’ve been trained like Pavlovian dogs to turn our money over to Wall Street.”

Four factors keep the middle class poor, Kiyosaki says:

• Taxes

• Debt

• Inflation

• Your retirement plan

“If you’re going to be financially intelligent,” you have to know how to use all four of those factors “to make you rich,” he says

To become rich, especially in the wake of financial crisis, “you’ll have to stop thinking the way you think and start thinking differently and start doing things differently.”

He says that as long as we have a middle class, we’ll be an advanced nation.

But, “the problem with the middle class is that they’re not moving from middle class to rich. The middle class is now moving from middle class to poor.”
