Ray Dalio

Legendary Investor Ray Dalio Breaks Down Everything You Need to Know About the Current World Economy

History’s patterns repeat, but many things (like truly severe pandemics) may only happen once in a lifetime. So if you only think about what you’ve personally experienced, you will be unprepared for the future. As a dedicated student of history, Ray Dalio is on a mission to help us weather a coming economic storm that may be even worse than what happened in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. In this episode of Conversations with Tom, Ray Dalio and Tom Bilyeu discuss the current severe recession and the debt crisis that preceded it. And while Ray does advocate planning for the worst-case scenario, he also offers a powerful reminder that you don’t have to do this alone.
