Capital Gain Is A Ponzi Scheme Says Kiyosaki

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Robert Kiyosaki calls capital gain a Ponzi Scheme


Why?  Because you are looking for a bigger idiot to buy something off you at a greater price than you had paid for in the first place. 

"Capital Gains is like this goose that has laid a golden egg and you eat the goose.  Why would you eat the goose?"




Unlike property traders, investors are in it for the long haul.  Increase your cashflow by adding value to your property, give your tenant a good home and the rent payments will keep coming in.  Take care of the cashflow because that is money you get in your hands today.  If you end up with more capital after x number of years than that is an absolute bonus!

Because cashflow is so important, we are pleased to announce the launch of the APIA Cashflow Group from March 2013 onwards.  All meetings will be focused on how to use what you already have to increase your cash-flow.

Are you a cap gain investor or a cash-flow investor?  Tell us below.
