Publisher's Summary

An impassioned defense of open society, academic and media freedom, and human rights.

George Soros - universally known for his philanthropy, progressive politics, and investment success - has long been under sustained attack from the far right, nationalists, and anti-Semites in the United States and around the world because of his commitment to open society and liberal democracy.

In this brilliant and spirited audiobook, Soros brings together a vital collection of his writings, some never previously published. They deal with a wide range of important and timely topics: the dangers that the instruments of control produced by artificial intelligence and machine learning pose to open societies; what Soros calls his "political philanthropy"; his founding of the Central European University, the world's foremost defender of academic freedom; his philosophy; his boom/bust theory of financial markets and its policy implications; and what he calls the tragedy of the European Union.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Interesting

This man has helped many societies to develop work and more stable economies, yet I don’t understand why he is so vilified by President Trump and many others. He is quite self-congratulatory, but he also rose from very humble beginnings. That is something to be proud of.
