George Soros on globalization by George Soros ( Book )
17 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 1,572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Even before September 11, 2001, it was clear that not everyone was happy with globalization: violent protests have become a regular feature of international summit meetings, and many young people have expressed their strong opposition to policies that they see as enriching the rich at the expense of workers, the environment, and traditional culture." "In this book, Soros not only identifies the problems but also puts forward practical proposals to make the system work better. In a thoughtful analysis of our existing international financial and trade institutions, Soros shows that while they aid wealth creation they fall short in providing other public goods. Soros deplores an unwitting coalition between market fundamentalists on the far Right and antiglobalization activists on the far Left bent on destroying the international institutions we have and calls for a different coalition that would work to reform and strengthen those intitutions. The missing element, the centerpiece of the new architecture, is the use of Special Drawing Rights for the provision of development assistance and public goods on a global scale."--Jacket

The winning investment habits of Warren Buffett and George Soros by Mark Tier ( Book )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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, Buffett says he only reads analyst reports when he needs a laugh. In The Winning Investment Habits of Warren Buffett & George Soros you can discover how the mental habits that guided your last investment decision stack up against those of Buffett, Icahn, and Soros. Then learn exactly how you can apply the wealth-building secrets of the world's richest investors to transform your own investment results
