"Today China has not only a more vigorous economy, but actually a better functioning government than the United States".
- George Soros
"China has risen very rapidly by looking out for its own interests ... They have now got to accept responsibility for world order and the interests of other people as well."
In Soros' view, the markets' moods – a "mood" of the markets being a prevailing bias or optimism/pessimism with which the markets look at reality – "actually can reinforce themselves so that there are these initially self-reinforcing but eventually unsustainable and self-defeating boom/bust sequences or bubbles"

There is a resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe. The policies of the Bush administration and the Sharon administration contribute to that. It's not specifically anti-Semitism, but it does manifest itself in anti-Semitism as well. I'm critical of those policies... If we change that direction, then anti-Semitism also will diminish. I can't see how one could confront it directly... I'm also very concerned about my own role because the new anti-Semitism holds that the Jews rule the world... As an unintended consequence of my actions... I also contribute to that image.

I do not subscribe to the myths propagated by enemies of Israel and I am not blaming Jews for anti-Semitism. Anti-Semitism predates the birth of Israel. Neither Israel's policies nor the critics of those policies should be held responsible for anti-Semitism. At the same time, I do believe that attitudes toward Israel are influenced by Israel's policies, and attitudes toward the Jewish community are influenced by the pro-Israel lobby's success in suppressing divergent views.

Broke the Bank of England???? sure, he is wise and made an excellent for-cast that cashed out huge, if the sterling had rose after he withdrew he would have lost a lot of potential earnings, but he took the risk and made out good. This is capitalism right?

We are already enslaved but I do understand your point. Bretton Woods I was to organize us all with the IMF and World Bank, we were still going to be mostly sovereign states just with more centralization and concentration of wealth and power. This time however, their Bretton Woods II is going to be far worse.
The first one was to push us into debt and their second one is going to be the answer to what they originally created. “Let us help we must restructure the system because the one we first set up destroyed you, so let us fix what we first screwed up”. How stupid are people?! That is like letting your doctor ‘accidentally’ removing your kidney and then him telling you that he will just operate again to fix what he first messed up, you can trust him!
I swear if people cannot wake up even for this maybe I should just go ahead and join their side at least I can have a good life not worrying about being a slave. If people are just that stupid to even try and stop them from enslaving them when they still have the chance to stop it then maybe my efforts should be dedicated to getting on their side and moving my way up with them. If I was to even see just a little anger by the public about this after the news breaks then I will proudly stand by the people, but if they are just that lost maybe my allegiances should be placed elsewhere. :shk:
Soros and friends reorder global finance at new Bretton Woods
While all the focus is now on the three-ring circus in Washington vis-a-vis passing the fiscal 2011 budget the Democrats failed to pass in 2010, up in New Hampshire this weekend at Bretton Woods, the Institute for New Economic Thinking is convening a very important conference, "CRISIS and RENEWAL: International Political Economy at the Crossroads." It's no accident they're meeting on the very same site as the Bretton Woods Conference -- formally United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference -- that met from July 1-22, 1944, during World War II to plan the postwar financial world after the expected defeat of Germany and Japan. That's because the purpose of this weekend's conference is to reorder world finance in the wake of the near-collapse of the global financial system in 2008. Like Bretton Woods, they must expect some new calamity, with winners and losers. The groundwork was laid a year ago at INET's inaugural meeting at which George Soros teed off with his "Anatomy of Crisis - The Living History of Last 30 Years: Economic Theory, Politics and Policy." "I am afraid," he said, "the current discussions miss the main point: namely that the recent financial crisis was not only a market failure but also a regulatory failure. "And what matters now is not so much who regulates, but how. Regulators ought to undertake a course of critical self-examination - Chinese style."

Funny, I didn't see such an outcry and a thread with 20+ flags when the Koch brothers did their retreat, complete with the lobbying for Gov Scott Walker, Rick Scott, etc, all to organize the total destruction of unions in this country. In fact, I remember specifically that many pro-Tea Party ATS posters here were defending the Koch brothers as patriots who were only doing this because they cared for their country. Personally, I'm not a fan at all of big money players like George Soros and the Koch brothers having any influence like this, but this thread is ripe with hypocrisy for bashing on liberal billionaires having meetings and influence while condoning the actions of the Koch bros. The motto on ATS is "Deny Igorance"--try it sometime.
he believes in a mixed economy, one with a strong central international government
Great information! I totally agree, many people lump Soros in with all the NWOers without really knowing what he stands for,

I'm really not sure about Soros. From some interviews I've read I actually found myself agreeing with alot of things he was saying regarding the wars and even Israel.
I guess my main question would be, why is fox news constantly going after him? What is the battle that is going on behind the scenes?

Yes I am for government intervention... what's your problem??? everyone has to be like you??? tell people what to do much???
Your market had a chance. Look outside much??? do you think that the US is running smoothly??? do you realize that the US is the MOST BROKE nation on earth??? how could you suggest that to do it another way is laughable?? If the world decided they had enough of you and shut our doors, you would be dead inside a year and that gun in cabinet isn't going to help you.
Being an American, i would say the only position available to you is on your knees begging the rest of the world to show mercy. So far your doing a piss poor job.
