CW 453 – Ray Dalio- How The Economic Machine Works with Founder of the Bridgewater Associates Investment Firm
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.

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

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