How Economies And Markets Work

Being a global macro investor for all these years has required me to gain a practical understanding how economies and markets work. If you’re interested in some of my economic principles, I recommend watching this 30 minute video.

Economics 101 -- "How the Economic Machine Works." 

Created by Ray Dalio this simple but not simplistic and easy to follow 30 minute, animated video answers the question, "How does the economy really work?" Based on Dalio's practical template for understanding the economy, which he developed over the course of his career, the video breaks down economic concepts like credit, deficits and interest rates, allowing viewers to learn the basic driving forces behind the economy, how economic policies work and why economic cycles occur.
