For bestselling author Robert Kiyosaki, crashes debt and taxes are the secret to how the are getting richer, so is 2018 setup to deliver?
"I hope so," said Kiyosaki the author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and his latest, How the Rich are Getting Richer.
And with the stock market continuing to hit all-time highs, Kiyosaki said the next financial crash is "imminent," simply because "something has to happen."
"Since 2004 we have been in a debt bubble and the problem with debt bubbles is that when they come down, they come down like an avalanche so I don't think it's too long [away.] I'm not trying to be an alarmist because I like crashes, it's like going into Wal-Mart and they are having a 50% off sale, so when everything goes on sale I am back int he market," Kiyosaki said.
Should a financial correction occur, Kiyosaki said he is well covered with his gold holdings which he has been accumulating since 1972, "I have more gold then I can ever spend in my lifetime," he said.
On Friday, stocks rose to record highs with their best start since 2003, the Dow Jones industrial average rose 197 points to an all-time high and the S&P 500 reached a record high, climbing 0.6 percent.
