    • Why would anyone respect his management principles? From sources that are publicly available that have analyzed the culture at Bridgewater, turnover of employees, happiness of employees, etc., it is mostly NEGATIVE. If his investing results are less than impressive, and that is the purpose of the business, that is a direct reflection on his leadership and his management principles.

      So, let's be precise here. His management principles are BAD! What he is good at is convincing pension funds and similar entities to invest with him. He's a good salesman. Being a good salesman is hardly impressive. Anyone can learn to bullshit! NOT EVERYONE CAN LEAD A BUSINESS SO THAT IMPRESSIVE RESULTS FOLLOW!

    • I very much respect Ray Dalio (Trades, Portfolio)'s management principle's.  Ray claims to be a simpleton but in my opinion he is very sharp and one of the best managers that have ever existed.  What Bridgewater did well was create an amazing culture.  A great team that worked together to accomplish their goals.  A have done my best to implement everything Ray Dalio (Trades, Portfolio) discusses in his books except his investing advice.  Ray Dalio (Trades, Portfolio)'s genius was to get a team together that convinced people to allow his firm to manager their money.  That is why he is rich.  Personally I have smoked Ray Dalio (Trades, Portfolio)'s returns since I began investing in 1999.  I am up 15.4% average annual return since inception.  I lost nothing when the dot com bubble burst.  I lost nothing when the tech bubble burst.  I lost nothing during the recession of 2008-2009.  I never sold I just put my usual 20% of my pay in every month  into 4 Vanguard funds.  30% small cap value, 30% mid cal value, 30 % large cap value, 10% international value.  This is my retirement money.  That  will always be the allocation and I will never change that or look at it. If you think you know the future you would have bought Bitcoin at .00001 cents per coin which is up about 65 million percent.  Ray has never beat the index in the long term.  But that is not his role his role is to get big instituitions to have him manage their money so he gets the commission.  And no one is better in that respect.
