Publisher's Summary

From legendary investor Ray Dalio, author of the international best seller Principles, who has spent half a century studying global economies and markets, Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order examines history’s most turbulent economic and political periods to reveal why the times ahead will likely be radically different from those we’ve experienced in our lifetimes - but similar to those that have happened many times before.

A few years ago, Ray Dalio noticed a confluence of political and economic conditions he hadn’t encountered before. They included huge debts and zero or near-zero interest rates that led to massive printing of money in the world’s three major reserve currencies, big political and social conflicts within countries, especially the US, due to the largest wealth, political and values disparities in more than 100 years and the rising of a world power (China) to challenge the existing world power (US) and the existing world order. The last time that this confluence occurred was between 1930 and 1945. This realisation sent Dalio on a search for the repeating patterns and cause/effect relationships underlying all major changes in wealth and power over the last 500 years.

In this remarkable and timely addition to his Principles series, Dalio brings listeners along for his study of the major empires - including the Dutch, the British and the American - putting into perspective the 'Big Cycle' that has driven the successes and failures of all the world’s major countries throughout history.

Dalio reveals the timeless and universal forces behind these shifts and uses them to look into the future, offering practical principles for positioning oneself for what’s ahead. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Informative but not without bias

Very pedantic start, almost lost me with the opening 2x chapter lecture on what he intends to tell us. Once underway, much better with some good informative macro economic lessons… however, his pro-China bias is very evident where he consistently points out and praises China’s strengths, but neglects to mention it’s weaknesses (especially in demographics and geology - ie listen to P. Zeihan’s work). His praise of Xi Jinping as ‘a strong leader’ and the ‘required authoritarian leader’ at this juncture in China’s history is especially distasteful.

Note* change of narrator

I was utterly engrossed in this book and Ray’s unique story-telling until they switched over narrators after chapter 1. Disappointing, really required Ray’s tone to deliver the message. Save yourself the trouble and just read the book.

A must of any money watcher

Throughly enjoyed hearing the history of major economise and how there dimise has taken place. My only negative to Ray's thinking into how China will become the dominant player is there lack of intuition into new technologies alot of Chinese technology has been developed by copying existing technologies from America so the lack of development by China will not make them a major player in military technology that belongs to America which is at least 15 years in front. Ecomically yes China will be the driver but Military technology is the key.

Great content, but not ideal for audio

The content and story were good, but refers alot to graphs in the attached PDF which defeats the purpose of an audio book.

Incredibly succinct description of a incredibly complicated subject

Here-in lies the perfect overview of what I’ve always wanted to obtain as an amateur investor; research based analysis of all things economics including many measures I thought were not accessible to me
