    Book Summary of Principles By Ray DalioAbout | Principles: Life and Work By Ray DalioAs one of the most successful investors and entrepreneurs in the world, Ray Dalio knows how the global financial system works. But, more importantly, he knows how to run a well-functioning business.In Principles: Life and Work, Ray goes below the surface of the successful reputation of his stock brokerage company, Bridgewater, to reveal the universal truths that he relied on to bring his business from the bottom to the top.Throughout this book, Ray shares the principles (many of which are unconventional) that he has developed and refined over the past forty years. And, in the same way that these principles were vital for Bridgewater becoming a leading financial organization, Ray believes they can be harnessed by anyone to experience better results for their business or personal life.Throughout Principles, Ray peels back the curtain on his time with Bridgewater, even walking us through how he started his business from the humble beginnings of a two-bedroom apartment. He explains in detail the trajectory of his multi-decade career and the pitfalls along the way that almost became disastrous. By splitting his book into three sections (“personal life,” “life principles,” and “work principles”), Ray simplifies his personal approach to success, and in this book summary, we’ll be looking at some of his most actionable ideas from the book.Whether you are looking to bring your business to the next level or whether you’re just looking to discover some better ways to connect with yourself and with others, Principles will provide you with profound insight to continuously improve and not be afraid to demand the best from your life.Here’s What You’ll Learn About in This Summary:- The ways that the ‘rational you’ and the ‘emotional you’ fight in your life- The 5-step process for pursuing meaningful goals in life- The best ways to move past your ego so you don’t hold yourself back - Why you need other people to be your best self- How to hire the best person for your business- What it means to go after second or third tier goals instead of first tier ones- And much, much more...

    “Bessen sets out to refute the arguments of . . . techno-pessimists, relying on economic analysis and on a fresh reading of history” (The Wall Street Journal).   Technology is constantly changing our world, leading to more efficient production. But where once technological advancements dramatically increased wages, the median wage has remained stagnant over the past three decades. Many of today’s machines have taken over the work of humans, destroying old jobs while increasing profits for business owners and raising the possibility of ever-widening economic inequality.   Here, economist and software company founder James Bessen discusses why these remarkable advances have, so far, benefited only a select few. He argues the need for unique policies to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to implement rapidly evolving technologies. Currently, this technical knowledge is mostly unstandardized and difficult to acquire, learned through job experience rather than in classrooms, but labor markets rarely provide strong incentives for learning on the job. Basing his analysis on intensive research into economic history as well as today’s labor markets, Bessen explores why the benefits of technology can take decades to emerge. Although the right policies can hasten the process, policy has moved in the wrong direction, protecting politically influential interests to the detriment of emerging technologies and broadly shared prosperity. This is a thoughtful look at what leaders need to do to ensure success not only for the next quarter, but for society in the long term.   “Everyone agrees that education is the key to wage growth. But what kind of education? . . . This enlightening and insightful book . . . shows that economic history can provide some useful and surprising answers.” —Hal Varian, chief economist at Google
