More Ray Dalio quotes :
There is slow growth, but it is positive slow growth. At the same time, ratios of debt-to-incomes go down. That's a beautiful deleveraging.Ray Dalio
Competitiveness is really what it costs you per man-hour to get you what you want. In other words, there's an education level that plays into the mix and so if it's inexpensive to buy an hour of real good education in places like China versus the U.S., that factors in.Ray Dalio
It all comes down to interest rates. As an investor, all you're doing is putting up a lump-sump payment for a future cash flow.Ray Dalio
