Ray Dalio: I have mixed feelings of the American Dream.  I’ll tell you what I love about the American Dream.  This is a country of — I think it’s defined mostly as a country of immigrants, of people who have come with all different points of view, and all different perspectives, and that they had to get along.  There had to be an acceptance at least — in many cases an appreciation for — all of those different points of view. It was a land of opportunity.  It should be an opportunity. That is fantastic. A meritocracy, to be all you can be. That is the American Dream and I love that element.  At the same time, I don’t want to stamp it as American.  It is what is uniquely American, I think. But it can be, in various ways, anywhere, and wherever it is, it’s good.  Now we’re in a global world, and it’s very important in that global world that we emphasize, most importantly, good ways of being. Not overdo the Americanism part, relative to the “What is the good way of being?” and then understand, also, other good ways of being. Those dimensions, to me, are — absolutely I love.  And then we also can bring in elements of, let’s not be so emphasizing the American part of it that we also say, “It’s got to have an American stamp on it to be good” that we can’t then also say, “What are all the different other ways of being in the world that we also can learn from?”
