Robert Kiyosaki Warns Fed Rate Hikes Will Destroy US Economy — Says Invest in ‘Real Money’ Naming Bitcoin

The famous author of the best-selling book Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki, says the Federal Reserve will destroy the U.S. economy with interest rate hikes. He advises people to invest in “real money,” naming bitcoin as an example.

Robert Kiyosaki on Fed Rate Hikes, U.S. Economy, Bitcoin

The author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki, is back with more warnings about the U.S. economy and advice on where investors should put their money.

Rich Dad Poor Dad is a 1997 book co-authored by Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter. It has been on the New York Times Best Seller List for over six years. More than 32 million copies of the book have been sold in over 51 languages across more than 109 countries.

On Friday, Kiyosaki tweeted that “savers are losers,” elaborating:

Today, U.S. debt in 100s of trillions. REAL INFLATION is 16% not 7%. Fed raising interest rates will destroy U.S. economy. Savers will be biggest losers. Invest in REAL MONEY. Gold, silver & bitcoin.

A number of economists, such as those at brokerage firm Nomura Securities, are predicting a 100 bps increase in the Fed’s benchmark short-term rate next week. Investment strategist Ed Yardeni told CNBC Friday that he believes the Fed is “going to come around and conclude that maybe just get it over with, maybe 100 basis points instead of 75 basis points. And then maybe one more hike after that.”

Some people, such as Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Ark Invest CEO Cathie Wood, have warned that a major Fed rate hike risks deflation in the U.S. economy.

Kiyosaki has repeatedly warned that the biggest crash in world history is coming. In April, he said all markets are crashing. He has recommended gold, silver, and bitcoin before. However, recently he said gold is expensive, calling silver the best investment value today.

Last week, he urged his mailing list subscribers to get into cryptocurrency now, ahead of the biggest crash in world history.

The famous author has been advising investors to buy bitcoin for quite some time, stating for several months that he is waiting for the price of the crypto to bottom out before getting in. After revealing that he was waiting for BTC to test $1,100, he said in July that he was in a cash position ready to buy the cryptocurrency. At the time of writing, bitcoin is trading at $20,103, down 6% over the past seven days and 14% over the last 30 days.
