With Perspectives on Money and Investing That Often Contradict Conventional Wisdom, Robert Has Earned a Reputation for Straight Talk, Irreverence and Courage.
His point of view is that the old advice of "get a good job, save money, get out of debt, invest for the long term, and diversify" is bad (both obsolete and flawed) advice. This challenges the status quo. His assertion that "your house is not an asset" has stirred controversy, but it has been proven to be accurate in our economy's current financial crisis.
In 2006, Robert teamed up with Donald Trump to co-author Why We Want You To Be Rich—Two Men-One Message. It debuted at #1 on The New York Times Best Seller list.
Robert wrote the column, Why the Rich Are Getting Richer, for Yahoo! Finance. And he was featured in TIME Magazine's popular "10 Questions" column. Here, he answered questions ranging from investing with few resources to the impact of education on one's financial success.
Robert's latest book, Conspiracy of the Rich: The 8 New Rules of Money, pioneered online book publishing as a free, online and interactive book with contributions from 1.1 million readers in over 167 countries.
Frequent updates and postings appear on ConspiracyOfTheRich.com. And he recently completed a mini-documentary, Shooting the Sacred Cows of Money. This centers on debunking the destructive myths about money and teaching the five, essential elements of financial education. The film can be viewed for free at www.ShootingTheSacredCows.com.
