Robert Kiyosaki shoots a sacred cow

“If financial literacy were a school subject Australia would get a C–.”

That bombshell was dropped recently by Fairfax journalist and high-profile money educator Nicole Pedersen-McKinnon. She adds, “Poor financial literacy often condemns people to a lifetime of debt and insecurity, even if they earn a good income.

She adds, “Poor financial literacy often condemns people to a lifetime of debt and insecurity, even if they earn a good income.

“It’s not a matter of numeracy but a lack of ‘money smarts’. Schools spend so much time on the 3Rs but so little teaching

responsible money management and self-reliance”. 1

This is an area that best-selling ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ author, Robert Kiyosaki has been making waves about for decades.

He says; “As adults, most of us know how to read. We’ve gone through the struggle and frustration of becoming literate.

Thankfully, that is one thing our schools do well. But for most adults there is one type of literacy that is sorely lacking – financial literacy.

“Our schools do well at teaching reading, writing and arithmetic, but they are horrible at preparing people to work with money. Nearly every person who graduates from school is financially illiterate.”

Chances are you don’t know what you don’t know

Perhaps the first step to getting the financial education you need is discovering what it was you didn’t learn at school.

In this video, Robert discusses what you probably didn’t learn at school and what you must learn now to build and grow financial security in any economy.

 

Robert Kiyosaki is visiting Australia soon – along with a couple of his Rich Dad advisors featured in the video – to share his unique expertise on the fundamentals for wealth creation in the 2016 economy. See more at: http://richdadlive.com.au
