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.

Outstanding global view

Highly enlightening, history-driven model of the rise and fall of empires. Has given me a clear and comprehensive perspective on global dynamics between countries, across history and into the future. Highly recommended.

A New Appreciation for Macro Politics & Economics

Dalio never lets me down when synthesizing truly complex ideas and converging topics and turning them into something digestible. This book opened my eyes to what is really driving the loggerhead situation between the US and china and how it coincides with history that could bring us to a highly dangerous situation.

The book talks about long time frames, keeps the analysis relevant and shows how certain elements of the past typically determine the next phase of the future. Its similar to political cycle theory which has helped me trade stocks and assets knowing how to position myself and protect my family.

As someone who was very "anti-China" I also have a knew found understanding of how they position themselves as an emerging world power, the context behind it and likewise the strategy involved - typically over a very long period of time. Super interesting book and an absolute asset for people looking to explore these issues in more depth!

He tried to avoid saying Bitcoin

Thought provoking, data driven and relevant. The author shied away from Bitcoin as a potential solution.

Excellent coverage of historical aspect of empires

Really enjoyed the historical aspect of how empires grow and decline.
Was hoping to hear how Ray prepares his portfolio to cope with this change.

One of the most important books of 2021

If you only have time for one more book this year, I'd highly recommend this one:"Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order,
Why Nations Succeed or Fail." by Ray Dalio. In his characteristicly unswerving "seek truth through facts" manner, Dalio examines two thousand years of political and economic history and draws his conclusions. It is also full of very interesting graphs and tables. Not suitable for bedtime lecture though.

Disappointing

This is a complete wast of time. If you like to know how bad is this book, start with the last chapter. The so called “future predictions”. Total nonsense. Extremely disappointing.

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.

Critical listening

Critical listening for understanding the big cycles of history, and guidance on what to do about it. Simplified brilliantly!

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.

Enticing

Flawless data. Fair and sound reasoning. No point pushed, just ideas (based on data) thrown around. Very happy I listened to this.
