CCG Global Dialogue | Wang Huiyao in Dialogue with Ray Dalio

January 06 , 2023






2022 has been marked by uncertainty and constant upheaval. Rising inflation has become a global phenomenon following a series of compounding issues such as food and energy crises, supply chain bottlenecks, massive debt created in the wake of the pandemic, etc. The world’s two largest economies have been locked in geopolitical tensions while Europe is heading into the second year in the Russia-Ukraine war. Ray Dalio, the famed global macro investor, in his latest best-seller Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order, offers a unique perspective that combines cycles of business and economics, as well as national and global politics.

This program features the author, the legendary financier, Bridgewater’s founder Ray Dalio and his insight into historical patterns of how markets and politics interact, his experience in building Bridgewater into one of the world’s leading hedge funds, his outlook on China’s post-covid growth, and his advice for investors and decision-makers on dealing with the economic and geopolitical headwinds ahead. This one-on-one session will be presided by Dr. WANG Huiyao, founder and president of Center for China and Globalization, who has hosted more than 40 episodes of CCG Global Dialogue series, including more recent ones featuring Larry Summers, Hank Paulson, Richard Haass, Niall Ferguson, Graham Allison, and Thomas Friedman.

The session will cover topics including:

· The Big Cycle vis-à-vis competing narratives of great power evolution (Paul Kennedy, Graham Allison, Niall Ferguson, etc.)

· The problem of debts and interest rates in challenging times

· Globalization and inequality: national and global solutions

· A global macro investor’s view on China’s past, present, and future

· Breaking the Big Cycle: what it takes?

Ray Dalio is the founder, chair and co-chief investment officer of Bridgewater Associates, a global leader in institutional portfolio management and the largest hedge fund in the world. In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Over forty years later, Bridgewater has grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to Fortune magazine, and Dalio himself has been named to Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater’s exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as “an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.” It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio—who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood—that he believes are the reason behind his success.
