Financial Turmoil in Europe and the United States: Essays Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Financial Turmoil in Europe and the United States shows George Soros responding in real time to a rippling earthquake of financial instability. In this collection of essays written since the aftermath of the Crash of 2008, he addresses the urgent need for the U.S. to restructure its banking and financial system. He anticipates the globalization of the crisis and, in particular, its perilous second phase in Europe; and finally he calls for concerted international action.

While charting the journey from the American mortgage crisis to riots in Athens, Soros often reveals an alternate course to that chosen by the U.S. and European governments. Soros was among the first to appreciate the scale of the disruption, and that “these are not normal times.” His analysis is cogent, informed by years as a fund manager and supporter of European integration. His concern for the eurozone’s future is palpable, as the markets test Europe’s banks and political processes to the brink of destruction, to a degree never before seen—or foreseen—since the creation of the European Community.

 

Synopsis:

The legendary financier reflects on key problems in the deepening global economic crisis since publication of his international bestseller The New Paradigm for Financial Markets: The Crash of 2008

Synopsis:

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.

Soros explores domestic and international policy choices like how to manage the (then) potential implosion of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac, deploying measures to stem global contagion from the sub-prime crisis, alternative options on bailing out lesser developed countries and why this was vital, the structural problems of European economic management, and more.

Financial Turmoil in Europe and the United States elegantly distills the choices at hand, and takes the reader on a journey of real time economic policy work and experimentation.
