Overview

In a series of lectures at the Central European University in Budapest in October of 2009, George Soros provided a broad overview of his thoughts on economics and politics. The lectures are the culmination of a lifetime of practical and philosophical reflection. In the first and second lecture, Soros discusses his general theory of reflexivity and its application to financial markets, providing insights into the recent financial crisis. The third and fourth lectures examine the concept of open society, which has guided Soros’s global philanthropy, as well as the potential for conflict between capitalism and open society. The closing lecture focuses on the way ahead, closely examining the increasingly important economic and political role that China will play in the future. The Soros Lectures presents these five seminal talks into one volume, which offers a condensed and highly readable summary of Soros’ worldview.

“Soros offers a charming mix of autobiography, analysis of the financial crisis, and explication of his concept of ‘reflexivity’ in economics.”

Financial World
“When George Soros speaks, people listen, which is why this collection of lectures by Soros on his philosophy of life and markets will command attention.”
