The author of the personal finance book ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ Robert Kiyosaki, believes that the ongoing Federal Reserve policies to contain inflation are acting as a catalyst for an economic crash.
“Gold & silver prices plunge as Fed continues raising interest rates. Silver is out of stock, so I am buying physical gold coins. Raising interest rates will kill the economy. Stock, bonds, and real estate will crash. Fed will pivot. Buy Gold, Silver & Bitcoin before FED pivot. Take care,” he said.
Adapting to a possible economic crash
Interestingly, Kiyosaki pointed out that if the economy crashes, most people will have to go the extra mile and adapt. He equated the scenario to his experience with the Vietnam war. According to Kiyosaki:
“I did not have to go to Vietnam. I was draft exempt because I was in the oil industry. Yet I volunteered for the US Marines and flew helicopter gunships. Great decision because I had to grow up. In this coming crash many people will grow up and many will be wiped out. Take care.”
It is worth mentioning that Kiyosaki has for long accused the Federal Reserve of engineering an economic crash through its means of handling inflation. Notably, the author maintains that the institution is responsible for the soaring inflation.
Bitcoin potential to protect wealth
In this line, Kiyosaki stated that investors could store their wealth in Bitcoin, noting that the flagship cryptocurrency can protect wealth. As reported by Finbold, Kiyosaki suggested that in an economic crash, Bitcoin will, however, not protect income. He, therefore, suggested finding side hustles.
Overall, amid the soaring inflation, Kiyosaki has maintained that traditional finance products are at risk of crashing. For instance, he suggested that the dollar would likely crash in early 2023 but advocated for silver.
