  1. I’ve often times wondered – why don’t billionaire hedge fund managers who are obviously so intelligent and successful, run the country or the Fed or the Treasury? Ever wondered about that? Wouldn’t almost all the economic problems be at least tackled well?

  2. Ray Dalio, like other very smart hedge fund managers, will tell you the truth only to a point. If they told you the extent and full truth of our brewing financial crisis, everyone would run for the hills, thus facilitating and causing the epic crash that is coming.

  3. I think quite a lot saw those patterns. The question is timing. Some people got into the trade too early. And got stopped out. Is timing sufficiently clear in the reading or different people will come away with different interpretations?

  4. He's calling it a DEBT CRISIS — it's wasn't a debt crisis. It was a BAD DEBT crisis as a result of FRAUD. There are good debts and bad debts. If "debt" itself were the cause – we'd have financial crisis every year. You had debts up to and preceeding 2008 — mortgage debts that were bad debts — and this debt hit the stratosphere thru SECURITIZATION which is a function of volume in the bond market. It was the tying of BAD DEBT to the BOND MARKET (think volume/ securitization) that precipitated the collapse. Of course, securitization wasn't possible without the fraud from the ratings agencies (S&P, Fitch, Moody'). So, blame Moody's, blame Fitch, and blame S&P. And for you Kool-Aid drinkers out there — know that your precious Warren Buffett owns Moody's. Ray won't tell you this because he loves the honour of men, and loves money, more than he loves the truth !!! Very little he says that is either memorable or enlightening. It's cool and acceptable to blame the Fed, blame low interest rates, blame debt, but not so cool to blame FRAUD. Had the big 3 RA's not committee fraud, YOU HAD NO FINANCIAL CRISIS — nobody will tell you that (and nobody can argue against me on that either) — that's political suicide — but, RAY WON'T TELL YOU THAT. HE CAN'T. IT AFFECTS HIS STANDING IN THE WORLD. So, Ray's stupid little debt book should be retitled, "All causes of the FC that I can tell you without accusing any industry of fraud or losing my precious popularity". It's his little suck-up treatise. Not interested !!

  5. Yeah the economy is so great my fully employed friends cant afford houses and 7 million americans are 3 months late on there car payments. What was the stat on americans who stopped paying their student loans about a year ago? 1 million a year? My uber driver was in her 30s, currently in school again with over 100k in student loan debt.

  6. I take exception "these times are good he says" NO they are good for 1% NOT for 99% hence the populism. This is the bubble guys like this live in…. employment is low but the wages are S**t quality of life is terrible for most. This is a very dangerous period IMHO.
    I would argue these times are the riskiest we have ever seen in any post-war period with the biggest wealth gap ever in modern history ( that's increased mostly under the QE period ).
    Who benefited from QE? easy to see why we have populism.

    We were all robbed by the political class and elites through banking mechanisms and finance of which Ray became a billionaire clipping the ticket of all that money moving between Wall Street.
    Did he create any value?
    Was he predatory to the value being created?
    Perhaps some guilt manifesting itself now as he sees the carnage of the past 20-30 years.
