In a break from the traditional format of the Creating Wealth Show, today features the audio version of Ray Dalio’s educational and informative video How the Economic Machine Works. Dalio discusses a range of topics in-depth to provide a full overview of how the economic machine functions – just a few examples are the inflation/deflation model, de-leveraging and the difference between credit and actual money.

 

 

Key Takeaways

01.24 – The premise for today’s show is to gain an insightful overview of economics, thanks to Ray Dalio.

08.45 – The amount of free, available education options really question why students pay so much for a College degree.

11.27 – Transactions are the lynchpin – they create the three forces which ultimately drive the economy.

14.37 – The main difference between borrowers and lenders is that the former want to buy something they can’t afford, while the latter want to make money into more money.

21.13 – Credit doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing; when the purchases can be used to create income it can be a positive, growth-creating technique. 

22.53 – Ray Dalio takes us through his interpretation of the inflation/deflation cycles. 

26.35 – Debt repayments and changing credit-worthiness are issues which have an effect worldwide. 

32.07 – Because you can’t always guarantee that a borrower won’t default on their loan, so debt-restructuring is sometimes a necessary step. 

38.00 – Printing money can have a positive effect on the economy, but it has to be done very specifically.

Jason Hartman’s topics for discussion today range from the business impact of Colorado’s legalization of marijuana to correctly assessing a company’s revenue to the changing demographics of today’s society.

Later he talks to the author of Life Purpose Boot Camp, Eric Maisel about how we need to change our perception of meaning and anxiety in the creative world. Maisel’s atheist beliefs lead to a spirited exchanging of views, making today’s podcast informative and passionate.

38.10 – The key to reaching this more creative level really lies in the morning creativity practice.
