In the first part, the book reports how taxes negatively impact the poor and the middle class, while they make the rich increasingly wealthy.
On the one hand, the most affected classes see taxes as a burden that needs to be paid; on the other hand, the rich see possibilities of gain.
From this perspective, the rich get richer, because, unlike the rest, they are not restricted to working to pay taxes.
Then the author Robert Kiyosaki presents the fact of why saving is not a good option. He reports that the savings interest rate is close to zero. What's more, banks charge you to save your money almost the same as you pay to save it.
Another important factor cited in the book, "Why the Rich Are Getting Richer", is the fact that states are printing more and more money to prevent their economies from collapsing. This causes the currency to devalue, leading to crises.
This stems from the impact projected for the year 1971. During this period, Richard Nixon uncoupled the gold standard dollar to start printing money, and its value decreased by 90%.
Do you know why taxes make the rich richer? Through tax incentives! The government provides lower taxes to large companies.
In this sense, before taking the next step, it is necessary to understand the CASHFLOW quadrant, taken by the author Robert Kiyosaki from his other work, "Financial Independence".
CASHFLOW reveals who pays the most taxes. The quadrants are:
The Owner of large companies (O) and Investor (I) quadrants get more tax incentives because the initiatives that take place there help the government play its role in improving the economy.
If you want to be part of such quadrants, the best option is to prepare your mindset, skills for money, and educate yourself financially.
When you see debt and taxes as a hindrance to getting rich, you are targeting the Self-Employed (S) and Employee (E) quadrants. Because they are committed to paying constantly, these quadrants are the most taxed.
The more difficult it is to make mistakes and admit your mistakes, the more difficult it will be to leave Employee and Self-Employed and pass to Owner and Investor. According to the book "Why the Rich Are Getting Richer", changing the quadrant requires the following types of intelligences:
The rich buy bargains that enrich them. They wait for stock market crises to buy the best at low prices such as real estate, gold, silver and trades at minimal prices. That way, the rich don't invest in the long run, they diversify into a little of everything.
Financial inefficiency is something that immobilizes people, destroys self-esteem, making them frustrated and depressed. Thus, they end up committing corrupt acts in search of more money.
On the other hand, inefficiency can also blind you as your confidence goes beyond the necessary level, to the point of not letting you see the market's crises.
Therefore, it is necessary to be careful with the level of confidence, since, as it becomes smaller than necessary, we feel victims of our own finances. However, when trust becomes ego, we ignore trends.
But what makes people financially inefficient? Sometimes, it may be the lack of adequate information about what financial education consists of.
The author Robert Kiyosaki discusses in his work, "Why the Rich Are Getting Richer", which people may think it is, but it is not financial education, among them:
Legitimate financial education does not have to be complex or confusing. This concept can be very simple, such as playing Real Estate Bank. In addition, it should include the concept of differences between the following three types of income:
Most of the poor and the middle class have only earned income, as they work for the money. Millionaires, on the other hand, usually invest in portfolio income.
Now, the truly wealthy, or called "sophisticated investors" or "money masters", have another type of income: phantom income.
For this type of income, debts are cash flow. Phantom income from debt consists of "renting money" to do more, instead of working for it.
As quoted by author Robert Kiyosaki in his book "Why the Rich Are Getting Richer", some examples of phantom income are:
In order to have a plan B, legitimate financial education is required, which includes study and practice.
The goal of this plan is to increase your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual intelligence, so that you can change quadrants.
Because of this, learning to use debts and taxes is important to move towards a better quadrant.
Thus, you must create an interest in yourself to frequently analyze how your financial obligations are interfering in your life.
You do not need to live life on the average, having a rented house, an economy car, saving money etc.
Legitimate financial education gives you a great advantage in life: having fun, living beyond your means and still getting rich!
In the book "Enrichment Factor", the author Paulo Vieira mentions that the enrichment journey happens through peaks and valleys. Thus, the ideal is to be ready and safe so as not to interrupt your trajectory.
In this perspective, the author of "Think and Grow Rich", Napoleon Hill, says that the first step to becoming rich is to have a strong desire to be rich. Remember, it was precisely for this purpose that Robert Kiyosaki was moved.
Finally, in "Awaken the Giant Within", author Tony Robbins says that if you want to exterminate a particular habit, the best option is to associate that behavior with some type of pain.
