Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order: Why Nations Succeed or Fail Hardcover – 1 December 2021
Enhance your purchase
A few years ago, Ray Dalio noticed a confluence of political and economic conditions he hadn’t encountered before. They included huge debts and zero or near-zero interest rates that led to massive printing of money in the world’s three major reserve currencies; big political and social conflicts within countries, especially the US, due to the largest wealth, political and values disparities in more than 100 years; and the rising of a world power (China) to challenge the existing world power (US) and the existing world order. The last time that this confluence occurred was between 1930 and 1945. This realisation sent Dalio on a search for the repeating patterns and cause/effect relationships underlying all major changes in wealth and power over the last 500 years.
In this remarkable and timely addition to his Principles series, Dalio brings readers along for his study of the major empires - including the Dutch, the British and the American - putting into perspective the 'Big Cycle' that has driven the successes and failures of all the world’s major countries throughout history.
Dalio reveals the timeless and universal forces behind these shifts and uses them to look into the future, offering practical principles for positioning oneself for what’s ahead.
Frequently bought together
'An audacious, practical guide to the rise and fall of empires over the last five hundred years of history - with important lessons for the US and China today.' -- Graham Allison, author of Destined for War
'Ray Dalio has a unique talent for making important and complex issues simple. I was riveted by his descriptions of the cause/effect relationships that drove the last five hundred years of history and how they provide practical guidance for dealing with what is happening now. This may well be the most important book of the year if not the decade. A must-read.' -- Arianna Huffington
'When Ray Dalio talks, I listen. His new book is remarkable in its scope - shedding new light on the biggest reasons nations win in the global economic and political arenas, and applying it to China and the US today. After reading this book, you probably won’t see the world the same again.' -- Henry Paulson, former US Secretary of the Treasury
'History is too important to leave to historians. Only Ray Dalio would have the brilliant audacity to attempt such a synthesis of the financial, economic and political history of the world. Agree or disagree, Dalio’s book is essential reading to understand our times.' -- Lawrence Summers, former US Secretary of the Treasury
'How do we learn from history so that we don’t repeat the same mistakes that have led to the downfall of nations? By reading Ray’s book Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order. Ray shows us how history can provide a template to help guide how we might think about what comes next. And for those of us who might shudder at reading 576 pages, he provides an ingenious highlighted path that makes the book a shockingly easy, yet comprehensive, read.' -- Mark Cuban
'Ray does an astounding job of giving us an inspiring and thought-provoking experience by looking at the rises and declines of empires, showing how economics, culture, military prowess, innovation, inequality and other elements interact. He leaves us with an improved perspective for thinking about very vexing issues such as the state of America versus China.' -- Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase

A worthy contribution but over-wordy given the content.
1) Dalio beautifully illustrates how cycles with multiple "determinants" drive political, financial and even psychological change through time
2) He uses multiple empires and overview the key characteristics as to "why the failed" and also why they were succesful
3) He puts it into language that anyone can understand
4) He mentions both positive and negative things about both China and the US based on data not on emotional opinions - a brave thing to do in the 21st century
5) He does not force an opinion and only makes suggestions based on data
Overall, a very useful and helpful book that has helped me re-allocate assets and focus on the future with more hedging in mind. The time to be concerned is when we all think things will be great forever and wealth inequality is high. The other data about polarity and key issues is very interesting as its obvious for us to see on the surface but its quantified here. A scry time to be in the US in some states
If you like to base your decisions on data, this is a must read! The book feels like breath of fresh air!
