The Wealth Standard Podcast - Challenging the Economics, Finance, and Wealth Building Status Quo

Nov 29, 2017

Confused by the tax bills introduced by the Senate and the House? Are you wondering who the real winners and losers are? Today’s guest, Tom Wheelwright, unpacks the tax bills and shares the important parts in easily digestible pieces. Tom is the tax advisor for the Rich Dad series, the author of the must-read, Tax-Free Wealth and contributor to the new books, Why the Rich are Getting Richer and More Important than Money.


Tom’s advice is to insist your tax advisor reads the bill, which he calls the Wall Street bill, not the Main Street bill. He shares with us why under this bill people should be jumping into real estate, why Silicon Valley is taking a big hit and how lobbyists truly run the government.
