"Conspiracy" of wealth
I quote this as I am overall not a conspiracy theorist or wacko. This said, what you state makes a lot of sense, and when you think about it, why not? The gov't which to a large extent determines our education, not wanting to create a strain on the tax system, creates schools that leave this out to have more employees and less entrepreneurs, B's and I's.
I saw this change my life in 2001 when I left my last full time, round the year job. I read RDPD and many others and became aware much more of where my $$ was going though I knew it was tight before when I worked. Then thanks to personal acquisition of some wealth, etc, I have gone out and bought some r/e investments AFTER before verifying they would POSITIVELY cash flow at a min 10%/year.
Others say I live well below my means and this book supports that as well, though I will add I would like to upgrade a few things here and there, on my own terms!! Thanks
