Beschreibung

George Soros has done more for open societies than any other private citizen in the world. In Underwriting Democracy he describes his experiences helping to bring about democratic change in Eastern Europe,experiences that are especially relevant now that our country has begun to intervene (though in an entirely different way than Soros) to create functioning democracies. Throughout the 1980s George Soros worked to identify and fund the growing political movements that caused the downfall of Eastern Europe's Communist governments. He established foundations, first in his native Hungary, and then in eight other countries, and used them to finance everything from the installation of previously forbidden copying machines in public libraries to the creation of experimental schools, clubs, and workshops for the support of dissidents. This unprecedented, and brilliant, financial and logistical support helped to bring down the communist regimes in peaceful revolutions across the continent. These are thrilling stories about facing down,and getting past,the Communist party powers in order to change these nations from the inside out .

Portrait

George Soros, geb. 1930 in Budapest, erlebte als junger Mann die deutsche und sowjetische Besetzung Ungarns. Soros, der ursprünglich Philosophie hatte studieren wollen, schloss seine Ausbildung an der London School of Economics ab und wurde schließlich Arbitrage-Händler, erst in London, dann in New York. 1969 begann er mit dem Management eines internationalen Investmentfonds. Die Anteile des Fonds waren allein bis 1987 im Wert um mehr als das 300-Fache gestiegen.

Pressestimmen

"Amazingly readable. ... Filled with gripping anecdotes. ... Soros used his theories to outsmart the stock market. Now he's trying to tell Washington: Get ahead of events. Only then can you mold them."--USA Today
