    Yep sh1t is coming close to the fan. Runaway spending is a problem. Big surprise.

    What now?
    My speculative scenario is:

    Bernie socialists will win eventually, given the state of our Universities and media. They will confiscate much of the wealth (eat the rich) but they will continue to print in order to finance huge welfare state with open borders i.e. the whole continent. ‘Helicopter money’ policy will be enacted to "stimulate" economy. Inflation will finally manifest, bankrupting everyone. Anger and frustration at Bernie will morph International Socialism in to National version to save at least something.
    Jews get blamed, given their high representation in finance that shouldn’t be hard and because many had fled from Bernie confiscations to Israel. This will go smoothly with increasingly higher Hispanic and Islamic support inside Democratic party. When that’s not enough, Jew sympathizers who couldn’t flee to Israel, will get their wealth get nationalized. They will burn trough that in a year and then it’s cats and dogs on the menu or invade Canada (Naval force was sold to China by Bernie).

    Should have listened to Ron Paul and ban the FED when there was still just a few trillions of debt 😉

    Back ground noise too distracting. I’m older than 25.

  3. JR on November 13, 2019 at 6:15 pm

    it was disrespectful to Ray to have this setup. It seems they want to quiet his message.

  4. alfistibrasiliani on November 13, 2019 at 6:17 pm

    End the FED.

  5. Mark Jamison on November 13, 2019 at 6:18 pm

    Couldn’t you’ve gone to a park bench somewhere without that clown in the background running his mouth . Come on man really.

  6. Kathleen McCormick on November 13, 2019 at 6:18 pm

    Billionaires are exploiters of the system. And now they are scared. Good.

  7. Donald F. Switlick on November 13, 2019 at 6:21 pm

    Money in politics is The Cause;
    everything else is a Symptom.

  8. Binary Sunset Chaser on November 13, 2019 at 6:22 pm

    The annoying background noise gives them “street cred”


  9. Matt Kreiser on November 13, 2019 at 6:22 pm

    Interviewer got beat up a bit after her question from headquarters didn’t come in.

  10. Clinton Lunn on November 13, 2019 at 6:24 pm

    I have much respect for Ray Dalio on many levels, but that joker Billionaire that implied raising his taxes will make him poor has no understanding of what being poor is, or he needs a basic math class. What a joker!

  11. Joe Henry on November 13, 2019 at 6:25 pm

    UBI looks like a good idea to stimulate the economy. I was originally against it, but Andrew Yangs book War on Normal People has some excellent points. Seems like he has the best solutions that I’ve seen anyone propose.

  12. L G on November 13, 2019 at 6:25 pm

    I wish Ray would have made more coherent argument for why today’s market has become insanely over valued.

  13. M G on November 13, 2019 at 6:26 pm

    This system only benefit people near printer and the rest is paying price.

  14. Okan Atalay on November 13, 2019 at 6:27 pm

    Ray Dalio, please study the zakat system in İslam. I think that will solve the inefficiency problem you mentioned.

  15. vernon gale on November 13, 2019 at 6:28 pm

    Evil non journalists corporate media against humans go back to tv u evilest ever propaganda against humanity

  16. Baron von Pfaffenhofen on November 13, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    This is probably one of the most important interview the average Joe or Jane off the street can watch in order to understand our current state of affairs on investment.

  17. Ken Le on November 13, 2019 at 6:34 pm

    Just listening to this guy has turn my Investments around. I would work or free just to learn from this guy.

  18. Kevin K Adj on November 13, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    is this lady fat or shes pregnant?

  19. Yuehao Wu on November 13, 2019 at 6:38 pm

    The background noise is disturbing .. I had to listen haed

  20. Len David Hart on November 13, 2019 at 6:38 pm

    All the background noise?, and this guy is the new E.F.Hutton? kinda weird, but thank you very much for posting/sharing. I still like to listen to him, this time the interviewer was quite, but the guys in the back? i dont get it?

  21. Colin Hendee on November 13, 2019 at 6:38 pm

    Billionaires can empathize with the lower half of the population by paying fucking taxes and suitable wages without jacking up the cost of everything.

  22. Craig Flick on November 13, 2019 at 6:39 pm

    Comic I don’t know his name, young black man "when my grandfather died he didn’t have a dollar to his name, Everyone said what a shame. I thought it was Perfect Timing"
    AND it Ain’t because I am broke
    if you need over 100 mil, you need help
    and all the B.S. foundations and yap yap yap…don’t get to the people. GREED IS GOOD, GREAT…BUT SO IS GIVING….you do what you want.

  23. Lindon Nikprelevic on November 13, 2019 at 6:40 pm

    Anyone on here recommend similar people like ray? Finance big picture explanations & honest? I guess you could throw in sexy in there if you want 😉

  24. Đạt Vũ on November 13, 2019 at 6:40 pm

    So clearly those people behind were listening to someone or something, but not the brightest man in the room

  25. Carl Harverson on November 13, 2019 at 6:42 pm

    Be great if all these big financial brains can find a practical way to reduce the cost of housing, rent and mortgages for the average person. Would really help people and therefore increase spending and company revenues, increase company profits, stock prices and employee salaries and therefore also increase market returns and government tax revenues. If blockchain tech can serve to capitalise the millions of SME’s into pooled investible vehicles….even better.

  26. Edgy on November 13, 2019 at 6:45 pm

    Great mind as always. What I don’t quite get though is: Why does uncle Ray have to yell -esp. towards the end? I 100% join my pre commentators: One could’ve made a better setting for this interview.

  27. Harjap Singh on November 13, 2019 at 6:46 pm

    To sum it up, we have high debt obligations with our national debt and unfunded liabilities. We don’t have the tools available to deal with this adequately, namely raising taxes or lowering interest rates, without spreading negative financial effects through the economy. We will resort to printing money to pay for these obligations and this will result in the weakening of the US currency. Now my continued analysis. In the end, the system will undergo a paradigm shift which will result in the collapse of confidence in the US dollar. There will be a capital flight out of the dollar with holders of US currency seeking to find tangible assets they can exchange for their dollars in the end like a game of musical chairs. Holders of dollars that couldn’t find a home early on will be left holding useless paper in the end. The global financial system will re-organize itself and excess debts will be canceled to make room for balance sheet growth once again. There are too many people that want to contribute in the economy and still so many untapped resources to be used to let lives go to waste just because our economic system is plugged up.

  28. GT 40 on November 13, 2019 at 6:46 pm

    Aside from being rich and famous, you can see from this interview alone that he is a genuinely decent person….
    There were times he has to talk louder and louder, perhaps just to hear himself speak, but showed no signs of being annoyed or bothered.

  29. bammbamm12 on November 13, 2019 at 6:47 pm

    "Let’s work together." Wow. I’m ready to go. Oh, wait……who’s leading the charge?

  30. Alex Berg on November 13, 2019 at 6:49 pm


  31. Eren Demir on November 13, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    CNBC doing a worse job then a random youtuber with this retarded background sound

  32. Alex Stonehouse on November 13, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    FIAT monetary is socialism Ray, and you know it

  33. Mikhel Brown on November 13, 2019 at 6:52 pm

    One the most annoying scenerios is a show host who talks like they are smarter than the guest they are interviewing. 😒

  34. Johnny on November 13, 2019 at 6:55 pm

    Can’t wait for the permabeartards to start popping up in the comments!

  35. rahul nargundkar on November 13, 2019 at 6:59 pm

    CNBC doing it again.. They never want people to hear Ray’s thought’s as he calls out the BS that they keep selling every single day..

  36. Daniel Bowman on November 13, 2019 at 6:59 pm

    Smart engineers steering the system is definition of socialism.
    Wise people let individuals decide what to do with their earnings.
    That was the premise of American dream.

    Abolish the FED, ban fractional reserve fraud and pluralize currency market.
    Separate state and economy/business.

  37. Isaac Wendt on November 13, 2019 at 7:00 pm

    What is everyone doing to counteract this coming situation? Do you own gold, buy assets like houses because of inflation? Bitcoin? Wait for a crash?

  38. Boicho Temelakiev on November 13, 2019 at 7:01 pm

    Someone is talking so loud nearby it’s ruining the interview.

  39. Emre O on November 13, 2019 at 7:02 pm

    Ray Dalio opinions are AMAZING. I would like to have heard more about reversing the extreme measures, such as near zero interest rates, mortgage rates, and other measures including taxes and its effect on various asset bubbles, and removal of the capital from the financial systems. For example bubble housing assets in some countries due to 10 years of zero rates, can it be reversed and cause damage slowly in order to provide more opportunity and affordability, or does it need to crash? or will we engineer our way out over 20 years by virtue of taxation, regulation, and increased subsidized supply, or some other methods, what are those ideas and methods, and what would happen if we just let asset bubbles burst. This is a problem in many countries.

  40. Raul Ramos on November 13, 2019 at 7:04 pm

    Why the hell would you conduct an interview in the same room as a conference? #Idiots

  41. Jane Liu on November 13, 2019 at 7:05 pm

    You can’t make riches poor or poor rich, well said

  42. BitMan 360 on November 13, 2019 at 7:07 pm

    The world has not ‘gone’ mad. It’s always been mad.

  43. ALICE on November 13, 2019 at 7:09 pm

    He is handling large money from China? Why working for the benefit of the Communist China Party? Who wants to take over us and the world.

  44. James on November 13, 2019 at 7:10 pm

    The truly sad part of this interview is the host has no idea what he is speaking about. She believes likemost in all this mainstream media and all is ok and will be fine and fixed by someone and not after her. She is pregnant and has no clue her child’s future will be greatly unlike her life…. it will be a lot harder when this crazy Monterey problems finally come to front. Wake up people!!!

  45. PearlPerlita Venegas on November 13, 2019 at 7:10 pm

    Thank you Ray for speaking out on what’s really going on when others are keeping him or outright lying to the public

  46. Daniel Bowman on November 13, 2019 at 7:11 pm

    So basically Governments flood financial system with money, which stays on books, presumably not to create hyperinflation. Resulting in Financial markets doing acrobatics with those money but producing f@ck all at the end. Only way these money/debt will see the light of real world is bonus money for the few privy enough to be Gov certified members of Financial elite. And the debt goes to Joe the plumber’s grand children.
    And solution is more education? You mean in Keynesian economics or Lesbian dance theory?
    F off.

  48. Daniel Bowman on November 13, 2019 at 7:11 pm

    Any semblance of Capitalism ended with creation of FED.

  49. Curious on November 13, 2019 at 7:11 pm

    Wealth isn’t printing money, it’s factories, farming, and services. It’s not sending your manufacturing overseas, and flooding your country with low wage, and low skill workers. Make Stock Buybacks by corporations illegal again as they were before 1982. Corporations had to invest in their people, Invest in research and development, or declare a dividend and give extra monies to the shareholders. Our country has not fared well since they allowed corporations to buy their own stocks

  50. Mark Jamison on November 13, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    Seems like whenever someone smart and informative try’s to speak anywhere someone try’s to interrupt or talks over him.
