Robert Kiyosaki predicted the collapse of the dollar and urged to buy bitcoin
The author of the bestseller “Rich Daddy, Poor Daddy” is confident that the U.S. Federal Reserve will begin to reduce interest rates as early as January 2023, which will lead to a decline in the U.S. national currency and the growth of digital assets. “Buying opportunity: if the Fed continues to raise interest rates, the U.S. dollar will strengthen, gold, silver and bitcoin will fall in value. Buy more. When the Fed changes policy and lowers interest rates, as England just did, you will be smiling while others are crying. Be careful,” the businessman wrote.
In another of his posts, he predicted that a change in Fed policy could happen in January 2023. In this case, the U.S. dollar will collapse, Kiyosaki believes.
