About
Bridgewater explains the video best:

"How does the economy really work?

This simple but not simplistic video by Ray Dalio, Founder of Bridgewater Associates, shows the basic driving forces behind the economy, and explains why economic cycles occur by breaking down concepts such as credit, interest rates, leveraging and deleveraging."


Acting as a boutique agency, Jonathan Jarvis and Heather Hartnett hired Thornberg & Forester to bring Ray's vision to life. Jonathan and Heather worked very closely with Ray to define the structure and story of the film. While at Thornberg & Forester, I oversaw the team responsible for the animation and design of this film.
