The New Paradigm for Financial Markets: The Credit Crisis of 2008 and What It Means

George Soros

In the midst of the most serious financial upheaval since the Great Depression, legendary financier George Soros explores the origins of the crisis and its implications for the future. George Soros, whose breadth of experience in financial markets is unrivalled, places the current crisis in the context of decades of study of how individuals and institutions handle the boom and bust cycles that now dominate global economic activity. 'This is a once in a lifetime moment', writes Soros in characterizing the scale of financial distress spreading across Wall Street and other financial centres around the world. In a concise essay that combines practical insight with philosophical depth, Soros makes an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the great credit crisis and its implications for the world.
