History Book Group: “Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order: Why Nations Succeed and Fail”

Decorah Public Library staff are hosting eight book discussions in July. The groups are open to the public and newcomers are encouraged to attend. Anyone interested should call the library at 382-3717 to learn more or to reserve a book. Zoom links are available on the Library’s website or you can email ktorresdal@decorahlibrary.org to be added to any of the groups’ email distribution lists. Funds for multiple copy sets were generously provided by Friends of Decorah Public Library.

The History Book Group will hold a hybrid meeting Thurs. July 14 at 3:00 p.m. to discuss Ray Dalio’s “Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order: Why Nations Succeed and Fail.” In-person attendees will meet in the lower-level public meeting room at the library and digital attendees will join via Zoom. A few years ago, renowned investor Ray Dalio began noticing a confluence of political and economic conditions he hadn’t encountered before in his fifty-year career. Seeking to explain the cause-effect relationships behind these conditions, he began a study of analogous historical times, such as the years between 1930 and 1945, in which wealth and power shifted in ways that reshaped the world order. Looking back across five hundred years of history and nine major empires, Dalio puts into perspective the cycles and forces that have driven the successes and failures of all the world’s major countries.

For more information, contact Tricia Crary (Friday Book Group), Zach Row-Heyveld (Cookbook and Quick Bites Groups) or Kristin Torresdal (Happy Hour, History, and Speculative Fiction Book Groups) at 563-382-3717.
