Ray Dalio founded Bridgewater Investments, the most successful hedge fund in history. But he also made mistakes — and those mistakes helped him learn to balance audacity with humility.

During a visit to Stanford Graduate School of Business, Dalio talked about the value of a system that allows competing points of view to be heard fairly. Such a system can lead to good decisions in both business and public policy.
