(REFORMING GLOBAL CAPITALISM)
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.
