1019 ratings | 175154 views
Open Society Foundations chairman and founder George Soros shares his latest thinking on economics and politics in a five-part lecture series recorded at Central European University, October 26-30, 2009. The lectures are the culmination of a lifetime of practical and philosophical reflection. 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, examining the increasingly important economic and political role that China will play in the future.

One has a valid right to criticize Soros on his political views as well as his actions regarding the Open Society involvement to shady actions. However, respecting Soros as an investor and trader should be warranted.

"He" "His Theory".... Most all Theory...be it social, scientific, or economic, is just that...Theory! One man is not capable of reaching a Theory relative to World Domination by one Group of Men or, One Devil like him. Even Hungarians detest him and his devices. America knows he has pumped millions discreetly into our societal problems, only to cause more division. Let not the world be fooled by him, The Club of Rome, The Bilderburg Group, International Bankers, former presidents who attain global recognition, Barons, Kings, Queens, billionaires, and the few dominating trillionaires! Who are they to claim We The People are to stupid to govern ourselves!?!!! Resist this "Theory" and all "Ideologies" presented or attempted forced upon Free Civilizations!

GEORGE.W. BIATCH. (11 months ago)
Soros is relatively right on his analysis of markets bubbles, and booms and busts until he alledge that government has a role into fixing the problems. Government is often the initiator and stimulator of credit bubbles. Taking the punching ball away from the government enables the price mechanism to rebalance itself while cleansing out the malinvestments. Which therefore entail a recession. Recessions are a direct correlation of booms caused by the state. They are the necessary cure.

Market cannot be left alone due to "greed". Greed is an imbalance factor to the equation. And the person who proposed that the market to be left alone was acting on the basis of greed. You wouldn't open a supermarket with no workers, and a sign to just pay by themselves on their way out. Even in the current situation where there are cameras, security and workers, there are still people stealing... Can you imagine if there were no control. Just leave it alone and it will find its equilibrium!!! If people are stealing a canned food, what makes you think they are not going to steal millions of dollars (due to deregulation)? Even nature, left alone and untouched, has its own governing rule that it must follow in order to thrive.

I say the only way out is, the rich give most of their wealth back to the people in many ways , the government should take most of their wealth and use it on the people leave them with enough money to live and run their business . No one can have more then enough .

Fascinating lecture! He has a sympathetic/empathetic view of the regulators and people like Alan Greenspan who fundamentally disagree with his theory. Its refreshing to see an economist take a respectful line of "argument"....On a side note the comment section is entirely fascinating too. It's some sort of congregation of emotionally unstable people who just found out what compound interest is and now think their opinion matters.

SOROS N RUSSIA... I expect that soros ... let me spell his Name in reverse for ya ... SOROS, will eventually try some shit in vlads russia or the Ukraine again. Putin will charge his proxies with insurrection, treason, and fraud and interrogate them at which point the trail will lead back to zio soros. The duma will vote to try soros in absentia n convict him. A bounty will be issued in the millions with Russian citizenship n protection for life. The GRU much like mossad will drug and kidnap him somewhere on the globe and extradite him illegally back to moscow. Then we'll discover who .... governments ... wants to go to war over his saggy old ass. I suggest grabbing his kids at the same time to end his evil monetary reign. This would demonstrate to other globalists that nobody is out of reach so think thrice before promoting insurrection. The globalists underestimate how popular this event would be worldwide. Vlad should keep him locked up as a bargaining chip somewhere underground in high security siberia. Suggest hard or any kind of labor for his remaining years

ToIsleOfView (2 years ago)
While he seems to speak honestly of his mistaken market participation he is actually advocating for a small group of insiders to control the markets with regulatory authority and thus leave this group in the position to reap huge profits from their advanced knowledge of mandatory regulation changes. I don't know if Soros is even aware of this side of his elitist personality. His public advocacy for centralized regulation is always assuming a wise and benevolent hand intervening on behalf of the dim witted investors. History shows that people like Soros will always find a way to capture the regulators for his exclusive profit. I am good with fixed regulations that don't change based on which way the wind is blowing. Equal enforcement and harsh penalties for rule breakers is what is needed most.
MusikPiratCH (11 months ago)
TolsleOfView Unfortunately you cannot turn the wheal back! A globalized world will always have global companies. You simply cannot ban them in all countries! In some sectors you can even observe that only a few companies will survive. It might seem that more companies will lead to more jobs. But what will happen if those 50 companies you fantasy about have only losses because of their limited markets? Jobs will be lost companies will close ... If you don't stop the regulation the state will collapse because those unemploiments lead to a revolution. Regulations is a strong political instrument but when applied wrongly it leads to protests and finally to revolution! Soros don't even needs to "capture the regulators"! He will EARN MORE MONEY because his losses were capped! xD That's probably why he advocates for "regulations". Just think about it! :D
Scott (1 year ago)
Idiot
ToIsleOfView (2 years ago)
Good regulation is indeed what you say but some regulation blocks free market competition.  While the multinational corpocracy clamor about free trade they are in effect stealing the practice of free trade for their individual corporate profit. Multinational Corporations should be illegal because they have 10x more money power than real people.  I would regulate american corporations down to individual states with no sharing of book keeping, employees, or profits.  Every Walmart would be limited to be no larger than a single state corporation. 50 different corporations, all in direct competition with each other. No collusion allowed whatsoever.  This eliminates monopoly and allows new start up competition.  It creates more jobs because each state must staff the entire infrastructure for the corporation. And the foremost thing it does is limit money power lobbing for federal special interest.

17:30 he claims that his model is correct even if contradicted by data that does not follow the pattern exactly. this makes his claim unfalsifiable. i do not discard what he is saying. but i am sure he would agree that i should have some amount of uncertainty to his statements. after all is he acting within a descriptive phase of reality? or is he giving a prescribing speech and using his own method to manipulate those who would follow it? the moral of the story is to not be to reflexive and dependent upon his way of viewing the world, less you fall in line to the positive feedback mechanism that allows him to profit off of your inability to play his game by his rules better than he can himself.

Stefan Alexander I wonder WHY he advocates for more governmental control over the markets? Can he EARN MORE money with controled markets? I'm very sceptical about Soros' true motives! He isn't honest at all. Normally most economists declare that free markets work best. Stock exchanges are free markets. However even Soros had times when he at least had losses in his books. (He don't need to realize those losses.) I assume Soros wants to minimize those "book losses" thanks to governmental control. How selfish!

Well Mr. Soros is correct I think in saying financial markets impact the underlying fundamentals. This much is obvious in an age where financial markets are orders of magnitude larger than for lack of a better term real markets and are used as a price signal to infer performance of underlying assets. Synthetic assets are for the most part the core determinant of modern financial markets today. So it is not so much that the established theory is wrong or he is right and vice versa, but that the nature of markets has changed and an updated understanding is required to capture that. I don't think his theory satisfies this need at all. Nevertheless, I find it particularly distasteful that this situation is portrayed as unavoidable and it is not government that creates bubbles but us the citizenry who are at fault. Somehow Mr. Soros lives in a world where expansionary monetary and fiscal policy have absolutely no impact on markets except to reign them in. A remarkable conclusion. The idea that market participants are rational for jumping into a bubble and adding fuel to the fire is completely false let alone laudable. As a market participant you know the consequences, yet you absolve yourself of your responsibility to manage your own risk... so now, we need government to not only disturb markets to satisfy political pressures but also take control of them in their entirety and set our prices so won't be hurt by meddling again. When Mr. Soros goes on to say that trust in the price discovery mechanism is market fundamentalism I couldn't help but cringe this was not immediately protested. His blatant favour of fixed prices and the parading of the government's failure to appropriately regulate issues in the market as evidence of our need to have them completely control markets is unsavory in the extreme. It's the old story where government breaks your leg and then hands you a crutch saying: "see, you need me".
