I do not mind them selling legitimate items to get pledges but do not show stuff on how to get rich. To me they are most likely are scams and PBS should know better.
The pledge break--I was referring to is Kim Kiyosaki rich woman. It smells fishy to me, I am not saying it is a scam.
we used to give over $1000 a year to our PBS station, but three years ago when they started having Kiyosaki sell his snake oil we stopped our donations and wrote to the GM exactly why. I even provided links and reviews that explain why Kiyosaki is a nutbar and should not be associated with pbs. Obviously PBS gets a big kick back from the snake oil...because they still have his crap on.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad was decent but I didn't like his other stuff.
The closest I ever got to Kiyosaki was his podcasts based on RD-PD, but they were sufficient enough to give me a pretty good sense of what he is peddling. If the rest of his shimdigglery is anything like that crap, I definitely agree with the sentiment here.
Oh, I know....to disagree with Kiyosaki means that I must be thinking like 'ol poor dad and therefor, I am self-defeating. I disagree, and I sleep at night just fine with no desire whatsoever to sell "self-help" books promoting certain questionable ethics. Something tells me that this type of person (Kiyosaki and some others that I won't mention) are going to be marked in the near future. It has happened before and if anything is to be learned from this financial mess that we are in, I would imagine it would be that playing with funny money can have serious consequences.
