Make $13 Billion in 30 Minutes With Ray Dalio’s Simple Economic Explainer Video

Your new sensei.

Ray Dalio, the Bridgewater Associates billionaire, transcendental meditator, and human behavioral tinkerer, has learned some things over his four-odd decades in the hedge-fund business. These things have made him one of the richest men in the world, with a net worth estimated at $13 billion, and a trusted adviser to leaders in government and business.

Now Dalio wants to impart his money-making knowledge to the rest of us, in the form of a 30-minute (actually 31, but who’s counting?) YouTube tutorial. It’s all very simple, you see.

In the quirky, animated video, Dalio explains his theory of a “beautiful deleveraging” — the part in an economy’s life cycle where austerity, central bank money-printing, and debt restructuring all take place in tandem, leading to slow but sustained growth and a gradual, controlled rise in inflation. (It’s the part we’re in now.) It takes him a while to get there, but then again, he’s giving out 40 years of wisdom.

Set aside half an hour to watch Dalio below, and then get to starting your own $140 billion hedge fund using what you’ve learned. Results not exactly guaranteed, but you’ll never know unless you try.
