As Robert's book makes clear the major economic changes of the last forty year's have made many of the economic assumptions people used no longer apply. They no longer bring the security and independence we expected. We need to encourgae people to become business owners and investors rather than employees and self employed so they win their freedom and security.
An example: to look for a well paid secure job with a large company is no longer a route to security. An employee you can be fired easily, an employer wants the best of your contribution for as little cost as possible. Why should we give the best of our lives for someone elses benefit.
Another example most people's pension will not keep them to the style to which they deserve, many will rely on the governments pension and that is not much. Does royalty style income change that? Can the average person achieve that? Yes see Robert Kiosaki's latest book The business of the 21st century? The problem is we are educated to see network marketing as a bad thing "pyramid selling" where in fact it can be very ethical and is highly regulated in the UK.
Is it a good idea to invest for a cash flow that will pay your expenses? How can we do it? Most people's answer is they do not know or it is too risky. Is that right?
We are entering an era when we need to learn how to provide for ourselves. We should develop a plan so we can achieve our dreams. We should encourage students to earn enough for their education and not require huge loans. Let's free parents to give their children the education they believe in.
Let's give our children an education theat at least looks at these issues and help at least some more of them find financial freedom.
