  • ON GLOBALIZATION

    In this pathbreaking new 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 anriglobalization activists on the far Ieft bent on destroying the international institutions we have and calls for a different coalition that would work to reform and strengthen those institutions. 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. In a powerful concluding chapter. Soros assesses the United States’ role in the world after September 11. The United States, he cautions, cannot secure its own prosperity and the safety of its people through the raw and unilateral exercise of power: peace and security can be won only through international cooperation. This book is at once a warning, a call to action, and a pointer to a more prosperous and peaceful future.

  • OPEN SOCIETY

    Lauded by the New York Times as “brilliant and persuasive,” and published in more than thirty-five foreign editions, George Soros’s The Crisis of Global Capitalism became an instant classic. Now Soros takes a whole new look at the arguments he made in that book, incorporating the very latest in global economic and political developments. He shows how the recovery following the economic meltdown of 1998 may have been a false dawn, leaving us in a much more precarious position than we realise. He also explores surprising connections between events like the war in Kosovo and the economic wealth of nations. And he offers new insights into the fates of Russia, Asia, Europe and the United States. Demonstrating that our still unquestioning faith in market forces blinds us to crucial economic instabilities, Open Society provides an inspiring vision of how to fix the flaws in the system – suggestions that have already influenced leaders at the IMF, the World Bank, and in many national governments.
