How The Economy Works

In this 30 minute animated piece, Ray Dalio, founder of Bridgewater Associates, explains the fundamentals of economics in a way anyone can understand. It’s a distillation of Ray’s understanding of the global economy, the concepts he’s developed, and the research his firm has conducted — which helped them sidestep the financial crisis and invest successfully for over 30 years.

At it’s essence, the economy works like a machine.

This project was an exciting opportunity to take a rich body of research and work with Ray to distill it down into a 30 minute overview that has something for everyone: from your average person who doesn’t know anything about finance to the sophisticated professional policy maker. I hope that this simple design and storytelling combined with Ray’s economic thinking helps you can understand why we have credit, economic cycles, and financial crises.
