In late January 2009, Robert Kiyosaki launched Conspiracy of the Rich - a free online book which was written in serial basis to help people understand how the current recession came about and learn how to survive through the coming rough years. An unprecedented publishing event for Kiyosaki and The Rich Dad Company, CONSPIRACY OF THE RICH is an interactive, 'Wiki-style' project in which Kiyosaki has invited feedback, commentary and questions from readers across the globe. The response so far has been totally fantastic. Millions of readers have flocked to the website (www.conspiracyoftherich.com) to read what Robert has to say about the recession and the readers have posted thousands of comments. Some of those reader comments will be included in the book. And, because Robert has been posting chapters in real-time on a regular basis, he's able to address what's been happening to the economy on a timely and topical basis. His 8 New Rules of Money provides readers real insights on how they can get through these tough times.
A 4th-generation Japanese American, Kiyosaki was educated in New York before joining the U.S. Marines and serving in Vietnam as a helicopter gunship pilot. In 1977 he founded a company producing Nylon and Velcro 'surfer' wallets which became a multi-million dollar business.
