NPR stories about George Soros
The current financial turmoil is "the most serious crisis of our lifetime," and its roots stretch back decades, George Soros says. The financier blames what he calls a "super-bubble" fueled by strange financial instruments and massive American debt held overseas.
Philanthropist and investor George Soros is the chairman of Soros Fund Management and the Open Society Institute. His new book is The Age of Fallibility: Consequences of The War on Terror. Soros, whose worth has been estimated at over $7 billion, has directed his philanthropic efforts toward defeating George W. Bush in 2004, overthrowing communism in Eastern Europe, helping black students attend university in apartheid South Africa and repealing drug prohibition laws internationally.
