Bonus FAQs Rather than use your unfair advantage to cheat and deceive the uneducated, use your financial education to teach, enlighten, and set people free. Rather than use your unfair advantage to make only yourself richer, use your unfair financial education to enrich the lives of others. One of our biggest problems is an antiquated education system that hangs on to the past and cannot see the future. It’s an obsolete system that insists on preparing students for a world that is dead and dying. In 2010, millions of people lost their jobs. Millions of people have lost their homes. Millions of people have lost their retirement savings. Millions of people lost because they were financially uneducated and relied on others to secure their financial futures. Rather than allow this crisis to be a bad thing, use it as a motivator for something good. Teach yourself and teach others to think for themselves, rather than wait to be told what to do. We truly are on the edge of a brave new world and a new world economy. This crisis is simply the end of an era. It is also the birth of a new era, a new economy. The good news is that we are entering a new era of humanity, an era of unlimited abundance and opportunity. Advances in technology increase intelligence and reduce the cost of that intelligence. Technology decreases financial risk, reduces prices, brings wages down, and opens up worldwide markets. The good news is: Technology make it easier to be entrepreneurs. The bad news is: Technology makes life harder for employees. That’s why we’re seeing rising unemployment as technology replaces workers, just as the automobile replaced horses. Rather than going back to school only to focus on a higher-paying job, focus on looking for new ways to educate yourself. For the financially educated, it is a borderless world of abundance and opportunity. 266
