Ray Dalio Predicts Another Recession in 18 Months

Hedge fund manager Ray Dalio predicts another recession in 18 months. Dalio has been an amazing hedge fund manager during the recent years. Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater returned 9.5% in 2008, 4% in 2009, 45% in 2010. This year Bridgewater has already returned more than 10% in the first half of the year. Here is Dalio’s predictions according to a profile in New Yorker:

BRIDGEWATER ASSOCIATES

Dalio believes that some heavily indebted countries, including the United States, will eventually opt for printing money as a way to deal with their debts, which will lead to a collapse in their currency and in their bond markets. “There hasn’t been a case in history where they haven’t eventually printed money and devalued their currency,” he said. Other developed countries, particularly those tied to the euro and thus to the European Central Bank, don’t have the option of printing money and are destined to undergo “classic depressions,” Dalio said. The recent deal to avoid an immediate debt default by Greece didn’t alter his pessimistic view. “People concentrate on the particular thing of the moment, and they forget the larger underlying forces,” he said. “That’s what got us into the debt crisis. It’s just today, today.”

Dalio’s assessment sounded alarmingly plausible. But when one plays the global financial markets a thorough economic analysis is only the first stage of the game. At least as important is getting the timing right. I asked Dalio when all this would start to come together. “I think late 2012 or early 2013 is going to be another very difficult period,” he said.
