Cash Flow and Rich Dad

Flexo over at Consumerism Commentary is beating up on poor Robert Kiyosaki 🙂 As regular readers of this blog know I am not a raving fan of Rich Dad and Suzie Orman. They are marketing machines but, if they have helped you, then that’s cool!

We all hear “the message” when we are ready to win the personal finance game and I commend Robert for stressing cash flow and clarifying what is an asset versus liabilities. Many people have benefited from some of his material but with a lot of self proclaimed guru’s they become legends in their own minds and I think Flexo did a great job pointing that out!

I have had fun before with Rich Dad in this post Father Knows Best-Just ask Him.

    The issue with Kiyosaki is that when he strays from purely financial topics, he becomes a raving nut. I may not agree with him on his financial topics, but I see where he is coming from – however I just can’t stomach him proclaiming that poor people are lazy and wicked.

    Kira-I completely agree. The guy has lost his credibility. So much for the marketing machine. Steve
