“Significant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.” —The New York Times
Ray Dalio, one of the world’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he’s developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business—and which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.
In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to Fortune magazine. Dalio himself has been named to Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater’s exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as “an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.” It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio—who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood—that he believes are the reason behind his success.
In Principles, Dalio shares what he’s learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book’s hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of “radical truth” and “radical transparency,” include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating “baseball cards” for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, Principles also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they’re seeking to achieve.
Here, from a man who has been called both “the Steve Jobs of investing” and “the philosopher king of the financial universe” (CIO magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you’ll find in the conventional business press.
“Ray Dalio’s book is must reading for anyone who aspires to prevent or manage through the next financial crisis.” - Larry Summers
“A terrific piece of work from one of the world’s top investors who has devoted his life to understanding markets and demonstrated that understanding by navigating the 2008 financial crisis well.” - Hank Paulson
“An outstanding history of financial crises, including the devastating crisis of 2008, with a very valuable framework for understanding why the engine of the financial system occasionally breaks down, and what types of policy actions by central banks and governments are necessary to resolve systemic financial crises. This should serve as a play book for future policy makers, with practical guidance about what to do and what not to do.” - Tim Geithner
“Dalio’s approach, as in his investment management, is to synthesize information, and to convert a sprawling and multi-faceted issue into a clear-cut process of cause and effect. Critically, he simplifies without over-simplifying.” - Financial Times
For the 10th anniversary of the 2008 financial crisis, one of the world’s most successful investors, Ray Dalio, shares his unique template for how debt crises work and principles for dealing with them well. This template allowed his firm, Bridgewater Associates, to anticipate events and navigate them well while others struggled badly.
As he explained in his #1 New York Times Bestseller, Principles: Life & Work, Dalio believes that most everything happens over and over again through time so that by studying their patterns one can understand the cause-effect relationships behind them and develop principles for dealing with them well. In this 3-part research series, he does that for big debt crises and shares his template in the hopes reducing the chances of big debt crises happening and helping them be better managed in the future.
The template comes in three parts provided in three books: 1) The Archetypal Big Debt Cycle (which explains the template), 2) 3 Detailed Cases (which examines in depth the 2008 financial crisis, the 1930’s Great Depression, and the 1920’s inflationary depression of Germany’s Weimar Republic), and 3) Compendium of 48 Cases (which is a compendium of charts and brief descriptions of the worst debt crises of the last 100 years). Whether you’re an investor, a policy maker, or are simply interested, the unconventional perspective of one of the few people who navigated the crises successfully, Principles for Navigating Big Debt Crises will help you understand the economy and markets in revealing new ways.
Principles for Success distills Ray Dalio’s 600-page bestseller, Principles: Life & Work, down to an easy-to-read and entertaining format that’s accessible to readers of all ages. It contains the key elements of the unconventional principles that helped Dalio become one of the world’s most successful people—and that have now been read and shared by millions worldwide—including how to set goals, learn from mistakes, and collaborate with others to produce exceptional results. Whether you’re already a fan of the ideas in Principles or are discovering them for the first time, this illustrated guide will help you achieve success in having the life that you want to have.
A few years ago, renowned investor Ray Dalio began noticing a confluence of political and economic conditions he hadn’t encountered before in his fifty-year career. They included large debts and zero or near-zero interest rates in the world’s three major reserve currencies; significant wealth, political, and values divisions within countries; and emerging conflict between a rising world power (China) and the existing one (US). Seeking to explain the cause-effect relationships behind these conditions, he began a study of analogous historical times and discovered that such combinations of conditions were characteristic of periods of transition, such as the years between 1930 and 1945, in which wealth and power shifted in ways that reshaped the world order. Looking back across five hundred years of history and nine major empires—including the Dutch, the British, and the American—The Changing World Order puts into perspective the cycles and forces that have driven the successes and failures of all the world’s major countries throughout history. Dalio reveals the timeless and universal dynamics that were behind these shifts, while also offering practical principles for policymakers, business leaders, investors, and others operating in this environment.
En 1975, Ray Dalio fundó Bridgewater Associates desde su pequeño apartamento de Nueva York. Cuarenta años después, Bridgewater es la quinta compañía privada más importante de Estados Unidos (Fortune) y ha conseguido ganar más dinero para sus inversores que cualquier otro hedge fund en la historia (Bloomberg). A lo largo de su trayectoria, Dalio ha descubierto un conjunto de principios únicos que considera la base de su éxito y que ahora comparte con todos nosotros.
En este libro repasa su trayectoria, haciendo mayor hincapié en sus errores que en sus aciertos, pues destaca que estos errores han sido su principal fuente de aprendizaje. Un conocimiento que surge de la experiencia y que le permitió, tras acabar arruinado en 1982, ser uno de los únicos gestores capaces de capear con éxito la crisis financiera de 2008. Ray Dalio, que ha sido apodado “el Steve Jobs de la inversión”, te invita a descubrir estos principios y a ponerlos en práctica para conseguir todo lo que te propongas.
Os princípios de vida e trabalho de um dos maiores investidores e empreendedores do mundo
Conhecido como o “Steve Jobs dos investimentos”, Ray Dalio é fundador da Bridgewater Associates, a quinta empresa privada mais importante dos Estados Unidos e a mais eficaz gestora de fundos hedge do mundo. Listado pela Time entre as cem pessoas mais influentes de 2012, Dalio compartilha em Princípios suas técnicas, refinadas em quarenta anos de experiência, para auxiliar qualquer pessoa ou empresa a alcançar seus objetivos.
Para Ray Dalio, vida, gestão, economia e investimentos podem ser sistematizados em regras. Entre as centenas de lições do livro, erguidas em torno de seus alicerces de “verdade radical” e “transparência radical”, Dalio oferece uma abordagem clara e direta para a tomada de decisões e ensinamentos valiosos para a formação de equipes sólidas e eficientes.
“Ray Dalio tem me fornecido ensinamentos inestimáveis que agora estão disponíveis para você em Princípios.”
“Extraordinário. Todas as páginas estão repletas de insights e princípios de excelência — e adoro a forma elegante como Ray Dalio incorporou sua história e sua vida na obra.”
Come ha spiegato nel suo bestseller I principi del successo, Dalio è convinto che quasi tutti gli eventi si ripetano nel tempo e che quindi, studiando le loro ciclicità, si possano comprendere le relazioni di causa-effetto. Partendo da questi legami l’autore descrive quali sono gli elementi da monitorare per individuare
i vari fattori di crisi.
In questo nuovo libro Dalio applica la sua metodologia alle grandi crisi del debito e presenta i suoi
principi, con l’obiettivo di ridurre la probabilità di crisi future e di promuoverne una gestione corretta.
Che siate investitori, decisori politici o semplicemente persone interessate al tema, la prospettiva
anticonformista di uno dei pochi che è riuscito a superare la crisi aiuterà a comprendere meglio l’economia e i mercati finanziari e a vederli sotto una luce diversa.
Seine Beobachtungen aus dem Geschäftsleben hielt Ray Dalio schon als junger Unternehmer in einem Notizbuch fest. Das war die Geburtsstunde seiner gut 200 "Prinzipien", die mit diesem Buch erstmals gebündelt vorliegen und kaum weniger als die Essenz des geradezu unheimlichen Erfolgs von Ray Dalio und seiner Firma darstellen. Kern dieser Prinzipien ist eine stetige Verbesserung durch radikale Transparenz und Wahrhaftigkeit, eine Art "Ideen-Meritokratie ", also eine Atmosphäre, in der sich die besten Ideen durchsetzen.
Die einzigartigen Prinzipien, mithilfe derer jeder den Weg des Erfolgs einschlagen kann, und die mitunter harten Lektionen, die ihn sein einzigartiges System errichten ließen, hat Ray Dalio auf eine bisher noch nie dagewesene, unkonventionelle Weise zusammengetragen.
