Is Ray Dalio being honest now that he’s made billions more for himself and his investors the last decade?
Fed officials say tapering is near, advancing discussion on rate hike finance.yahoo.com/news/feds-b…
So while Fed governors are supposedly preparing to taper and hike rates, retired billionaire hedge fund manager Ray Dalio says that the Fed can’t taper QE or hike interest rates, without crashing asset prices or causing hedge funds to fail.

Which is ironic considering how back in 2012 it was Ray Dalio who wrote the “beautiful de-leveraging” white paper and recommended nominal GDP targeting and asset price inflation of stocks, bonds and real estate for the Fed and ECB.

Dalio even bragged in his book, Principles, how he got private meetings with Fed Chairman Ben Bernnke and Janet Yellen and also with the former head at the ECB at that time Mario Draghi.
Dalio’s company, Bridgewater was also bailed out in the 2019 Repo Madness fiasco as they were caught on the wrong side of the trade with their risk parity and basis trades as the Fed was raising rates and tapering back then. Now, the leveraged short vol trade, risk parity and basis trades are even more over crowded than before.
