Keiner ist in der Finanzwelt so umstritten wie George Soros: US-­amerikanischer Investmentbanker ungarischer Herkunft, Philanthrop, Autor und politisches Enfantterrible. Die einen preisen ihn als demokratischen Motor, der nicht müde wird, für seine Open-­Society-­Idee in aller Welt zu Felde zu ziehen und dafür Spenden in Milliardenhöhe zu sammeln. Die anderen halten ihn für einen skrupellosen Börsenspekulanten, dessen riskante Finanztransaktionen mutmaßlich mehrere Währungen, ja ganze Volkswirtschaften ruiniert haben.

Warren Buffett, Carl Icahn, and George Soros all started with nothing---­and made billion-­dollar fortunes solely by investing. But their investment strategies are so widely divergent, what could they possibly have in common? As Mark Tier demonstrates in this insightful book, the secrets that made Buffet, Icahn, and Soros the world's three richest investors are the same mental habits and strategies they all practice religiously. However, these are mental habits and strategies that fly in the face of Wall Street's conventional mindset. For example: -­Buffett, Icahn, and Soros do not diversify. When they buy, they buy as much as they can. -­They're not focused on the profits they expect to make. Going in, they're not investing for the money at all. -­They don't believe that big profits involve big risks. In fact, they're far more focused on not losing money than making it. -­Wall Street research reports? They never read them. They're not interested in what other people think. Indeed, . . .

In the midst of the most serious financial upheaval since the Great Depression, legendary financier George Soros explores the origins of the crisis and its implications for the future. Soros, whose breadth of experience in financial markets is unrivaled, places the current crisis in the context of decades of study of how individuals and institutions handle the boom and bust cycles that now dominate global economic activity. “This is the worst financial crisis since the 1930s,­” writes Soros in characterizing the scale of financial distress spreading across Wall Street and other financial centers around the world. In a concise essay that combines practical insight with philosophical depth, Soros makes an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the great credit crisis and its implications for our nation and the world.

A powerful, moving, and very personal memoir of "dancing around death" under the Nazi regime, by the father of billionaire financier George Soros. "Life is beautiful,­" begins Tividar Soros in this powerful and very personal memoir. "But luck must be on your side.­" Nevertheless, when faced with the daunting task of protecting his family during the Nazi occupation of Hungary, Soros, the father of billionaire financier George Soros, made his own luck. The Nazis came late to Hungary because, until early 1944, Germany and Hungary were allies. But when they did arrive, their orders were to put "the final solution" into effect with deliberate speed. Soros, a Jewish lawyer in Budapest, secured fake Christian identities for himself, his wife, and his two sons following the invasion of Hungary by the Germans on March 19, 1944. In a narrative reminiscent of the great Primo Levi, Soros recounts his experiences with a beguiling humor, deep humanity, and a wisdom that is humbling. Soros, who . . .

Author:

After reflecting on his support of a losing Democrat for president, George Soros steps back to revisit his views on why George Bush's policies around the world fall short in the arenas most important to Soros: democracy, human rights and open society. As a survivor of the Holocaust and a life-­long proponent of free expression, Soros understands the meaning of freedom. And yet his differences with George Bush, another proponent of freedom, are profound. In this powerful essay Soros spells out his views and how they differ from the president's. He reflects on why the Democrats may have lost the high ground on these values issues and how they might reclaim it. As he has in his recent books, On Globalization and The Bubble of American Supremacy, Soros uses facts, anecdotes, personal experience and philosophy to illuminate a major topic in a way that both enlightens and inspires.

The European Union could soon be a thing of the past. Xenophobia is rampant and commonly reflected in elections across the continent. Great Britain may hold a referendum on whether to abandon the union altogether. Spurred by anti-­EU sentiments due to the euro crisis, national interests conflict with a shared vision for the future of Europe. Is it too late to preserve the union that generated unprecedented peace for more than half a century?­This is no mere academic question with limited importance for America and the rest of the world. In the past decade, the EU has declined from a unified global power to a fractious confederation of states with staggering unemployment resentfully seeking relief from a reluctant Germany. If the EU collapses and the former member states are transformed again from partners into rivals, the US and the world will confront the serious economic and political consequences that follow.­In a series of revealing interviews conducted by Dr. Gregor Peter . . .
