George Soros, called "a superstar among money managers" by The New York Times, shares the investment strategies he uses to read the mind of the market.
"Audible doesn't have full version"
In October 2009, George Soros delivered a series of lectures at the Central European University in Budapest that provided a broad overview of his thoughts on economics and politics. Soros has achieved great and consistent success in the world of finance but has also contributed to the broader world of philosophy and human rights through the work of his Open Society Institute, an international network of foundations.
George Soros made billions of dollars anticipating seismic changes in the financial markets and used that money to try to change the world. He discusses what he believes were the fatal flaws of the Bush administration - his antagonism toward which is well documented - and the wider American view of the world. Soros heads Soros Fund Management and is the founder of a global network of foundations.
In the midst of one of the most serious financial upheavals since the Great Depression, George Soros, the legendary financier and philanthropist, has written a significant update to his New York Times best seller, The New Paradigm for Financial Markets. The revised and updated edition, The Crash of 2008 and What It Means, contains four new chapters, in which he looks at the depth and breadth of the credit crash and proposes an updated set of policies to confront the global financial crisis.
The dire economic situation we find ourselves in is not a result of economic forces alone, but of the policies pursued, and not pursued, by world leaders. In this collection of his recent writings on the global financial situation, George Soros presents his views and analysis of key economic policy choices leading up to, during, and following the financial crisis of 2008-2009.
"Major Snore Fest"
In the midst of one of the most serious financial upheavals since the Great Depression, George Soros writes about the origins of the crisis and proposes a set of policies that should be adopted to confront it. Soros places the current crisis in the context of his decades of study of how individuals and institutions handle the boom and bust cycles that now dominate global economic activity.
Soros makes an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the great credit crisis and its implications for our nation and the world.
"What you take away, you'll have earned."
Long known as "the world's only private citizen with a foreign policy", George Soros combines his razor-sharp sense of economic trends with his passionate advocacy for open societies and decency in world politics to come up with a workable, and severely critical, analysis of the Bush administration's overreaching, militaristic foreign policy.
