    " Soros writes about his theory of reflexivity and the credit bubble. I found it arcane at times. He does little to explain his theory or why the credit markets collapsed in an understandable way. "

    " George, I'll just take your word for it. If you invested $10,000USD with George Soros when he started his hedge fund in the late 60's and stayed with him into the late '00's when he closed it, your payout would have been $43,000,000. Suffice to say Soros knows what he is talking about when it comes to investing. Unfortunately, you'll need to be similarly intellectually endowed to grasp his ideas. Soros covers his concept of reflexivity first as an abstract philosophical framework and later as a driver of the current global "Great Recession". In neither instance are the thoughts easy to grasp. Are his insights glimmering brilliance? Readers without advanced degrees in economics, or potentially philosophy, will need to take his Warren Buffet-level money management performance as proof enough. In short, buy the book and leave it where your clients can see it and read something more accessible. "

    " Soros tells what it is to be human. The description and quantification of risk urgently needs to be improved (pg 74). Politics is more concerned with the oursuit of power rather than the pursuit of truth (pg. 44). But HOW, given the spread of intelligence in the population, are we to achieve, "an electorate that insists on certain standards of truth and honesty"? But how can even that solve the problem, in a world where the very, very, rich operate statelessly? "

    " a timely reading. one guy, billionaire, who came out of retirement, want to embrace recession, and make money out of it. "
