Ray Dalio - How the Economic Machine Works Guide challenges students to digest the tsunami of economic education condensed into this short 30 minute animated video.
This worksheet asks students to dig deep and cement their understanding of topics such as credit/money, assets/liability, interest rates, debt cycles, productivity growth, the debt burden, deleveraging, austerity, debt restructuring, redistribution of wealth, money printing and the role of the central bank & central government in the economy.
Whether you teach an economics course or not, if you can find time to schedule in this stand alone lesson your students will benefit tremendously by understanding how the economic machine works. Although it would be helpful for students to have some background knowledge, it is not necessary, as Ray Dalio breaks down the way the entire economy works brilliantly.
