George Soros is a legend in the world of finance. His Quantum Fund has been the best performing investment fund in history and his foundations have helped re-shape the post-Cold War world. In this thoroughly revised version of his international bestseller, George Soros reconsiders his analysis in the light of recent economic events. We need to improve our international arrangements to match our increasing economic interdependence. Soros proposes that the open societies of the world should form an alliance for the dual purpose of fostering the development of open society within individual countries, and to lay the groundwork for a global open society by strengthening international institutions and rules of behaviour. Whilst the hardback edition emphasised the financial side of the system, the paperback adds more weight to its political aspects. Offering brilliant solutions based on years of Soros's own experience as a financier and philanthropist, THE CRISIS OF GLOBAL CAPITALISM is essential reading for anyone involved with the new economy - that is, all of us.
