Rich Dad Radio, Released on 6/23/21
What do tulip bulbs and cryptocurrencies have in common? Today’s episode proves that amateurs are at the highest risk for losing big when an asset is in a bubble. You need only look at our crazes in modern times like the tech stock bubble of the early 2,000s, the sub-prime crisis in 2008, and even the designer fruit craze in modern-day Japan, where it can cost up to £20,000 for a square watermelon. Jim Rogers, a financial commentator, and successful international investor says, “If you want to be rich you should study history.” Unfortunately, the average investor doesn’t understand the fundamentals of the markets. They just buy because the market is going up…and everyone else is doing it. Host Robert Kiyosaki and guest Jim Rogers discuss how we are doomed to repeat history if we don’t learn from history.
Jim Rogers co-founded the Quantum Fund with George Soros in 1973, helping to steer the fund to a 4200% return before “retiring” at age 37. He is considered to be one of the greatest investors of all time. Rogers has made two record-setting journeys – once by motorcycle and once by car – and is in the Guinness Book of World Records for doing so. In between his frequent travels, he has served as a professor at Columbia University, started his own commodity index and is a frequent media commentator worldwide. Rogers has also authored six books. He currently lives in Singapore with his family. Jim has authored a half dozen books, including: Investment Biker: Around the World with Jim Rogers (NYTimes Bestseller), Adventure Capitalist, Hot Commodities (NYTimes Bestseller), A Bull in China, A Gift to My Children, and most recently, Street Smarts.
