“The Evolution of Money” Feat. Robert Kiyosaki

Protecting Wealth Amid Economic Uncertainty

Andrew Maguire and Robert Kiyosaki discuss wealth protection in uncertain times in Episode 172 of “Live from the Vault.” Kiyosaki emphasises shifting from fiat currencies to tangible assets like gold and silver, criticising the Federal Reserve for devaluing the dollar and causing inflation.

Silver Demand in India and China

The episode highlights the significant silver demand from India and China, predicting prices could reach $500 per ounce due to currency devaluation and silver’s industrial use.

Impact of Rising Oil Prices

Kiyosaki and Maguire argue that rising oil prices could lead to severe economic consequences, including the potential implosion of the financial system. They highlight that the increasing cost of oil could exacerbate inflation and strain the global economy, making it crucial to hold assets that retain value independent of the dollar’s performance.

Sound Money Movement and Kinesis

A major focus is the sound money movement and Kinesis, which brings precious metals as physical currency and makes it practical for everyday spending.  Kinesis leverages blockchain technology to create a secure and efficient monetary system, eliminating storage fees and offering yields on assets stored in a Kinesis account.
