Best known as the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. He is an entrepreneur, educator, and investor who believes the world needs more entrepreneurs.With perspectives on money and investing that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned an international reputation for straight talk, irreverence, and courage and has become a passionate and outspoken advocate for financial education.

It's funny how It has been almost 20 years since that book was published and a lot of what he warned about has come true.

More stress on social security, medicare, pensions down the shitter. Wealth divide even larger.

And people still trap themselves in debt and the rat race.

It's sad.

Arguably the worst online payment processing method. Sides with scamming pajeets and chinks 100% of the time. Everyone that is a seller hates this.

This megalomaniac motherfucker has had more influence on British and American government policy than any one man ever.

What's so amazing about it is that it's all soft power, he doesn't need to pay kickbacks or fund movements like Soros, he does it all through low quality journalism.

Also, albeit somewhat counterproductivley considering his conservative politics: name a bigger influence on pop-culture than the Simpsons?

With the exception of Soros I fail to see what "impact" any of them have had, anything to affect the status quo from where it would have gone otherwise?

Soros has donated millions to organizations charged with specific agendas.

I don't think Zuckerberg has drastically changed human interaction that much, Facebook is more just the flagship of how the internet has changed society rather than the sole reason.

Bloomberg, explain?

Buffet's whole principal is investing in companies that would do fine with or without him

What impact has he had?

He is scamming diots trying to wish their way to an oil free world by running a car company that loses money and using that to buy his solar company that was losing even more money and on the side has a rocket company that is rebuilding 1950 Russian knockoff tech.

@GoogleCat
His impact remains to be seen. Even if Tesla goes belly up, the market he's created for electric cars, for new forms of battery storage could have wide reaching implications for society and many industries.

But as it stands, all he's created is hype, it's yet to be seen if that hype changes anything.

He had one real achievement and that was paypal. Everything he's done since then has been a failure. When Space X inevitably loses it's government subsidization he's done. He's had 4 failed launches that have totaled to more than 2 billion dollars in costs. If he didn't have crazy government money he'd already be done. The Solar City deal won't go through because it's a pet project of his personally that he's not allowed to vote for and the company is also bankrupt. Tesla is going under because they're not capable of producing a return. They only rack up debt. I'm sure he's hoping the government will bail him out, but we all know it's just a matter of time until the 'musk' brand becomes a warning against marking driven futurism hype.

I 100% agree with this post.

Reddit retards fellate Musk because they don't look at the fundamentals of his companies beyond "ooh Teslas are pretty!" For some reason, the same people who think Musk is great also fellate(d) Bernie Sanders, and that says a lot.

To add to your complaints:

Tesla
50/50 good/trash engineering. Literally preventing you from servicing your own fucking vehicle. Doors won't open if the battery dies. Dumbshit abounds, and yet no-one likes to admit it because the 'tards buying $100k cars aren't willing to admit they got roped into a prototype at best. Considering the other significantly better $100k cars out there, not even worth looking at.

Solar City
Until photovoltaics become more efficient, this entire company is one big money pit. I suspect its existence is solely due to government money at this point.

Space-X
kaboom, literally

You guys sound like idiots. Tesla was the first car company to mass produce electric vehicles. They're the reason why you'll be driving an EV 20 years from now. They're also the only car on the market with autopilot, and you can get that at $72k, not $100k

Ebay has had PayPal a lot longer than the PayPal mafia had it and moreover, if Elon has his way it would've been an online banking company, not just online payments. In general PayPal, as is, helped popularize online shopping..

SpaceX is making rockets that can hold twice as much as any rocket on the market for a fraction of the cost. They're pioneering reusable rockets and generally trailblazing in the aerospace industry. They're the catalyst for all of the innovation in that arena.

Still
@likme
Windows, Facebook, Amazon and Google have all had a bigger impact on the general western population than anything Musk has built at this point.

I thought I'd never get too old for Veeky Forums, but at 24 I'm genuinely starting to feel like you people are immature idiots.
