Unless you have been completely sheltered, the world is changing right in front of our eyes. Every 100 years or so, there is a shakeup on how things are done globally. I had read about this years ago, however I was not aware that these cycles existed since the beginning of civilisation as we know it. To get into all the details would take more than one blog post for sure. Ray Dalio, for those who never heard of him, is Founder, Co-Chief Investment Officer, and Member of the Bridgewater Board · Bridgewater Associates, recently released a book entitled "Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order: Why Nations Succeed and Fail". He also produced a short annimated video on YouTube explaining all the priciples of the book. He went back to see the rise and fall of many empires and concluded that they all went pretty much through the same cycle. This is very well done and wanted to share with the community. Check out the video below:
I also found a recent interview that Tony Robbins did with Ray Dalio which goes into more details about the subject. Great stuff. Take the time to listen to it. You will not regret it .....
Whether you agree or not about Ray's assumptions, this is interesting stuff. It does put what the current state of the world in perspective. I believe it is good practice to look at the past so you can be prepared for the future, or at least anticipate and understand where all of this is heading.
Thank you for you checking it out and keep on smiling. Ciao ciao for now.
