(Bloomberg) — Ray Dalio took to Twitter on Friday afternoon to reassure his nearly 300,000 followers that his health is well.

“To be clear, I’m not sick,” he wrote, stating that some people had misunderstood the sharing of a past illness he had used in the demonstration of one of the principles featured in his coaching app. “That case happened 6 years ago and that health issue is long gone.”

A day earlier, the billionaire founder of investment management firm Bridgewater Associates, tweeted about a deadly episode of Barrett’s Esophagus “with high grade dysplasia” as he explained a principle in his app and book “Principles in Action.”

The condition, which usually converted to cancer of the esophagus at a rate of about 10 percent a year, was “a profoundly important personal case for me that I’m sharing with you to show you how valuable my principle about triangulating well can be,” Dalio said before adding that he’ll host an ask-me-anything session on LinkedIn on Monday.

“I’ll be answering your questions about work principles and how to create an idea meritocracy built on radical truthfulness and radical transparency,” he said.

Listed as participants in the forum are titans from the business and political world, including former US President Bill Clinton; Christine Lagarde, incoming President of the European Central Bank and former head of the International Monetary Fund; New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden; Bank of England Governor Mark Carney; and CEOs Bob Iger of Walt Disney, David Solomon of Goldman Sachs, Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase, Michael Corbet of Citibank, Tidjane Thiam of Credit Suisse and Dara Khosrowshahi of Uber.

The TSX Composite reached a new all-time high of 16,696.40 yesterday before pulling back in the last hour of trading and failing to set a new closing record. This morning we’ll dig into the anatomy of what propelled Canadian stocks to their intraday peak, with Shopify by far the most influential contributor.


The bumpy rollout of legal recreational cannabis stores suffered another setback yesterday after an Ontario judge ordered a two-week suspension of the licensing process after 11 Ontario lottery winners challenged their recent disqualifications. It boils down to a debate over whether they adhered to the provincial regulator’s timeline for submitting all necessary documentation. Now, the whole process is on hold until Sept. 25. Read all about it here.


If pocketbook issues determine elections, Statistics Canada’s latest national balance sheet and financial flow accounts run the risk of being politicized. And according to today’s numbers, Canadians were carrying a little more than $1.74 of credit market debt for every dollar of disposable income in the second quarter of this year, marking a modest uptick from Q1 when the closely watched ratio sat at 172.83.


More signs of incremental progress as China and the United States gear up for the next round of trade talks: China is exempting certain American agricultural products (including pork and soybeans) from additional tariffs and nudging domestic companies to buy those commodities. Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters late yesterday he would “consider” an interim deal along the lines of what our Bloomberg partners reported.


-WeWork has a home for its initial public offering, confirming today its shares will list on the Nasdaq. It also announced some governance changes, including halving the voting clout of existing shareholders to 10 votes per share from 20 and declaring no member of CEO Adam Neumann’s family will sit on its board. We’ll assess whether it’s enough to assuage concerns that had, reportedly, put the IPO’s future in doubt.

-In other IPO news: Smile Direct Club had miserable debut as a public company as its shares plunged almost 28 per cent yesterday.

-Montreal’s Element AI today announced it raised $200 million in a Series B financing via names like the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, McKinsey and Quebec’s government.

-The London Stock Exchange Group this morning officially rejected the unsolicited US$36.6-billion proposal recently tabled by Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing and said it “sees no merit in further engagement.”
