Raise Tax Revenues by Cutting Taxes?

I fell upon a great article about how lowering taxes can actually raise tax revenue. I was shocked it came from the Chicago Sun Times, because very few people I have talked to from that city have even considered criticizing what is going on in Washington right now.

Give this article a read. Hopefully the politicians in Washington will realize that maybe the ticket out of this mess is to make it more lucrative for us to make money?

10 Questions for the Rich Dad

When I first saw a Rich Dad, Poor Dad book a few years back, I thought they were just another set of investment books written to prey on the uneducated or "get rich quick" dreamers. However, after picking one up and reading it, I realized this was not so.

Robert Kiyosaki has since written many books. Most talk about how we have to get off our butts and work to get rich. Find cash flowing businesses, and your life will be great. Real Estate is a favorite investment of his, as are oil wells. OK, so what does all of this have to do with this blog?

Mr. Kiyosaki has a new book out called "The Conspiracy of the Rich," and if you hurry you can read it online for free at This book addresses many topics, but the one that is most relevant here is how the government's actions, whether through the educational system, tax policies or money printing, are keeping people poor.

I don't want to go into all the details. Read the book online for those, or view this short video.
