With economic malaise in Europe, lagging growth in the BRICS, gradual recovery in the US and Abenomics in Japan, there is a great deal that remains uncertain about the short-term and long-term future of the world economy. Ray Dalio, founder of Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund, anticipated both the 2008 financial crisis and the European debt crisis and has been at the forefront of developing risk parity financial models that can thrive in spite of this uncertainty. His company has also published numerous research papers since 2008 assessing the efficacy of different national responses to the global financial crisis. His advice is widely followed by policy makers, leading Time magazine to describe him as “one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World." In this lecture, Mr. Dalio shares his thoughts on the Japanese and world economies.
