“The United States is now the most powerful empire by not much, it is in relative decline, Chinese power is rapidly rising, and no other powers come close,” billionaire investor Ray Dalio wrote Thursday in the latest installment of his series on the changing world order.

In the the 10,000-word essay that explores the rises and declines of the Dutch, British and American empires and their reserve currencies, the founder of Bridgewater Associates says that empires -- just like humans -- have a typical life cycle that ultimately come to an end.

“No two are exactly the same but most are similar,” Dalio wrote, noting that the U.S. and China are approaching a point of comparability when “the risks of wars of one type or another are greater than when the leading powers are earlier in the cycle.”

While Dalio’s latest chapter focuses on the past instead of predicting the future, he says both the U.S. and China are leading the way in a new period of “of great inventiveness due to advanced information/data management and artificial intelligence supplementing human intelligence.”

“Because the world is richer and more skilled than ever before, there is a tremendous capacity to make the world better for more people than ever if people can work together to make the whole pie as big as possible and to divide it well,” Dalio wrote.
