How The Economic System Works

Ray Dalio is the founder of the world’s largest hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates and he put this short presentation together that I think everyone can benefit from.

The video below is a simple and easy to follow, but not simplistic, 30-minute-long explanation of how the economic machine works, how we can create more prosperity and how an economy reacts when debt is piled onto a nation and money is printed in record amounts, like we’ve seen happen in the last few years.

Based on Dalio’s practical template for understanding the economy, which he developed over the course of his career, the video breaks down economic concepts like credit, deficits and interest rates, allowing viewers to learn the basic driving forces behind the economy, how economic policies work and why economic cycles occur.

The economy affects everyone and yet how this system works is not taught in schools. Most people, if you ask them, don’t actually know how the system works or how to explain it to you.

You have to wonder why people (children especially) are not being educated about something so fundamental and important to their lives.

If you know anyone who’s remotely interested in how the system works, share this video with them.
