“Rich Dad Poor Dad” author Robert Kiyosaki has a new book about the importance of financial education. In “Why the Rich Are Getting Richer,” Kiyosaki wrote about why the money game is “rigged” in favor of people who are financially literate.

You used to be able to go to school, get a job, work hard and save your money to retire comfortably, but we don’t live in that world anymore. On today’s show, Kiyosaki explained why learning how debt, taxes and money really work can help bridge that divide.

“For 20 years … I’ve always asked the question ‘what did school teach you about money?’ and if people are honest, they say ‘nothing,’” Kiyosaki said. “The reason the rich are getting richer is because they have a financial education even doctors and lawyers don’t get.”
