This is the very reason why the CASHFLOW board game was developed. Robert and Kim Kiyosaki believed so much in the power of play to learn, and the demand for that kind of learning, that they decided to make a product that would meet that demand. In fact, they believe so much in the power of play to help people break free from the Rat Race that they’ve made CASHFLOW Classic free to play online. The term is commonly associated with an exhausting, repetitive lifestyle that leaves no time for relaxation or enjoyment. In the Rat Race, you rely on other people to mind your business for you. And, as we can see from the example of those play labs in Bangladesh, those people often do not want you to play or have fun. They want you to work, work, work as hard as you can. It all came full circle when Thunderbird School of Global Management utilized Rich Dad Poor Dad, CASHFLOW Quadrant, and the CASHFLOW games in its curriculum for their entrepreneurship program. The very prestigious university is internationally recognized for its educational programs. Start playing around more and escape the Rat Race! Zichermann talks about how the modern education system is fundamentally opposed to our nature as humans. Asking us to sit down and pay attention does very little for our education, when in reality we learn more by trying, making mistakes, and achieving. Experiencing the chemical benefits of the pleasure we feel when dopamine is released through our achievements helps us remember and learn far more efficiently.

The earliest known occurrence is 1934. In reference to aviation training a rat race was originally a " follow-the-leader" game in which a trainee fighter pilot had to copy all the actions (loops, rolls, spins, Immelmann turns etc.) performed by an experienced pilot. From 1945, the phrase took on the meaning of "competitive struggle. [1]"In his book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert writes about the concept of the Rat Race. In short, it’s the vicious cycle we learn from a young age that the only way to get ahead is to go to a good school, get a good job, and work harder and harder to try and get ahead. Unfortunately, the Rat Race game is a losing one.

The good news is that more and more schools have been using these games as teaching products in their classrooms. However, the best news is that the public likes these products. The board games sell well to private individuals—as well as to community organizations, churches, and youth programs. These are people who want to improve financial education for themselves and their members and look to sources outside traditional schools to learn. There is a growing conviction among many of my friends in academic circles that the university today is no place for a scholar in science. A professor's life nowadays is a rat-race of busyness and activity, managing contracts and projects, guiding teams of assistants, bossing crews of technicians, making numerous trips, sitting on committees for government agencies, and engaging in other distractions necessary to keep the whole frenetic business from collapse.At Rich Dad, we are committed to the power of games to change people’s financial lives. We spent a lot of time and resources to turn CASHFLOW into a digital online game that anyone can play for free. This provides an insight to an important rule about business: “Don’t go where you’re not wanted.” In other words, it is easier to make money and to effect change where you’re wanted. The best way to learn how to get out of the Rat Race is by playing the educational board game, CASHFLOW®

The Rat Race was used as a title for a novel written by Jay Franklin in 1947 for Colliers Magazine and first published in book form in 1950. It is dedicated To those few rats in Washington who do not carry brief-cases. The word collective most of them can't bring themselves to use—except to describe foreign countries or organizations they don't work for—but they are keenly aware of how much more deeply beholden they are to organization than were their elders. They are wry about it, to be sure; they talk of the "treadmill," the "rat race," of the inability to control one's direction. In your quest to escape the rat race, you need to know your why. What’s the most irritating thing about being in the rat race? Is it the low pay? Maybe it’s having a boss? Or you want to leave the toxic corporate environment? When choosing a why you need to make sure it’s burning the fire in you? The biggest life changes happen when you’re raging mad. When you’re at that boiling point and can’t take it anymore. When you begin to feel that way, use that anger and frustration to motivate you to plan your escape from the rat race.The term "rat race" was used in an article about Samuel Goudsmit published in 1953 entitled: A Farewell to String and Sealing Wax~I in which Daniel Lang [2] wrote, GET RICH WITH THE WORLD’S MOST POPULAR INVESTING GAME. CASHFLOW was developed by renowned entrepreneur and motivational speaker Robert Kiyosaki, author of the bestselling personal finance book of all time, Rich Dad Poor Dad. This game is the ultimate realization of Robert Kiyosaki's vision for an interactive tool to teach investing and wealth building. Put your financial skills to the test and learn how to escape the rat race in the comfort of your own home. LEARN MORE AND MORE AS YOU PLAY!
