Last quote by Ray Dalio

If you were to have a downturn, I really do believe that the wealth conflict, the left, the right and all of that would be intolerable. If you have a downturn, I think it becomes a social and political question.feedback

Sep 12 2017

In terms of my reaction, I would say if he was to leave it would be terrible. It would also represent a challenge for the administration.

I think it would be terrible if Gary left.feedback

For example, a creative thinker who is unreliable might be matched up with someone who's reliable but not creative. Knowing what people are like also allows us to decide what responsibilities to give them and to weigh our decisions based on people's merits. We call it their believability.feedback

Sep 06 2017

It has a list of a few dozen attributes, so whenever somebody thinks something about another person's thinking, it's easy for them to convey their assessment; they simply note the attribute and provide a rating from one to 10. For example, as the meeting [on Trump's impact on the economy] began, a researcher named Jen rated me a three–in other words, badly–for not showing a good balance of open-mindedness and assertiveness.feedback

Sep 06 2017

Note that everyone gets to express their thinking, including their critical thinking, regardless of their position in the company. Jen, who's 24 years old and right out of college, can tell me, the CEO, that I'm approaching things terribly.feedback

Sep 06 2017

This process allows us to make decisions not based on democracy, not based on autocracy, but based on algorithms that take people's believability into consideration. Yup, we really do this.feedback

Sep 06 2017

Different people are always going to have different opinions. And who knows who's right? Some people thought I did well, others, poorly. With each of these views, we can explore the thinking behind the numbers.feedback

Sep 05 2017

I learned to be radically open minded to allow others to point out what I might be missing. While the logical part of people's brains could easily understand that knowing one's weaknesses is a good thing, the emotional part typically hates it.feedback

Sep 05 2017

Being so wrong – and especially so publicly wrong – was incredibly humbling and cost me just about everything.feedback

Sep 05 2017

I ran the numbers and realized that I didn't have nearly enough money to take care of the people and causes that I wanted to help. I learned that even the richest people felt short of money they needed to do the things they wanted.feedback

Aug 29 2017

Prospective risks are now rising and do not appear appropriately priced in. Two confrontational, nationalistic, and militaristic leaders [are] playing chicken with each other, while the world is watching to see which one will be caught bluffing, or if there will be a hellacious war. We can also say that if the above things go badly, it would seem that gold (more than other safe haven assets like the dollar, yen, and treasuries) would benefit.feedback

Aug 22 2017 - Trump Presidency

While I see no important economic risks on the horizon, I am concerned about growing internal and external conflict leading to impaired government efficiency (e.g. inabilities to pass legislation and set policies) and other conflicts.feedback

Aug 21 2017 - Populism

It seems to me that we are now economically and socially divided and burdened in ways that are broadly analogous to 1937. During such times conflicts [both internal and external] increase, populism emerges, democracies are threatened and wars can occur. I can't say how bad this time around will get. I'm watching how conflict is being handled as a guide, and I'm not encouraged.feedback

Aug 21 2017

[D]emocracies are threatened when the principles that divide people are more strongly held than those that bind them and when divided people are more inclined to fight than work to resolve their differences. Conflicts have now intensified to the point that fighting to the death is probably more likely than reconciliation.feedback

Aug 21 2017

In other words, the majority of Americans appear to be strongly and intransigently in disagreement about our leadership and the direction of our country. They appear more inclined to fight for what they believe than to try to figure out how to get beyond their disagreements to work productively based on shared principles.feedback

[I]f you don't have 5%-10% of your assets in gold as a hedge, we'd suggest that you relook at this.feedback

Aug 10 2017

[I]f you don't have 5-10% of your assets in gold as a hedge, we'd suggest that you relook at this.feedback

Aug 10 2017 - North Korea

When it comes to assessing political matters (especially global geopolitics like the North Korea matter), we are very humble. We know that we don't have a unique insight that we'd choose to bet on. We aim to stay liquid, stay diversified, and not be overly exposed to any particular economic outcomes.feedback

Jul 13 2017

This new administration hates weak, unproductive, socialist people and policies, and it admires strong, can-do profit makers.feedback

Jul 07 2017

For the last nine years, central banks drove interest rates to nil and pumped money into the system creating favorable carries and abundant cash … That era is ending. When the music stops, in terms of liquidity, things will be complicated. But as long as the music is playing, you've got to get up and dance. We're still dancing.feedback

I believe that we are connected to our whole ecology, our whole world community, and our whole United States, such that it pays to be in symbiotic relationships with them–so, I'm concerned about his path. I am especially concerned about the consequences of his pursuing so much conflict.feedback

May 12 2017 - LinkedIn

Big picture, the near term looks good and the longer term looks scary. We fear that whatever the magnitude of the downturn that eventually comes, whenever it eventually comes, it will likely produce much greater social and political conflict than currently exists.feedback

Apr 29 2017

You don't have to tell people that their bald spot is growing or their baby is ugly. I'm just talking about the important things.feedback

It is one of those phenomena that comes along in a big way about once a lifetime – like pandemics, depressions, or wars.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - Populism

Mar 07 2017
