Ray Dalio is the founder of Bridgewater Associates. The company was profiled in Originals, a book I previously read earlier this year. Hedge funds are a bit mysterious to those who are not in the industry. I’ve never heard of Ray Dalio until I’ve read the book.
Here’s a successful investor and one of the richest Americans with estimated net worth over $15 billion dollars. He founded one of the largest hedge fund in the U.S., with over $150 billion dollars in assets under management (AUM). He began investing at the age of 13 and became a modern day self-made billionaire.
He has outlined his principles in a paper that is now on a webpage. Although you may not agree with everything he outlines in his principles, he asks the reader to be open-minded and honest. Afterwards, one can decide for oneself to agree or disagree.
Here is a simple video on how the economic machine works. Please spend thirty minutes to watch this. In the Bridgewater YouTube channel, you can actually watch this in seven other languages and other talks by Ray Dalio.
