Finanziere di successo dagli anni '50, durante il cosiddetto mercoledì nero George Soros è diventato famoso con un'operazione di speculazione finanziaria che ha costretto la Banca d'Inghilterra a svalutare la sterlina facendogli guadagnare una cifra stimata in 1,1 miliardi di dollari. Da quel momento è soprannominato l'uomo che gettò sul lastrico la Banca d'Inghilterra

Soros è Presidente del Soros Fund, dell'Open Society e fondatore e consigliere del Quantum Group. Politicamente è un sostenitore del movimento liberal della sinistra democratica statunitense e un finanziatore di gruppi per i diritti umani con un interesse per la filosofia, a partire da quella del suo insegnante giovanile, Karl Popper.

„The world order needs a major overhaul.“

— George Soros, The Age of Fallibility: Consequences of the War on Terror

„The development of a global economy has not been matched by the development of a global society.“

— George Soros
Context: The development of a global economy has not been matched by the development of a global society. The basic unit for political and social life remains the nation-state. International law and international institutions, insofar as they exist, are not strong enough to prevent war or the large-scale abuse of human rights in individual countries. Ecological threats are not adequately dealt with. Global financial markets are largely beyond the control of national or international authorities.

„Every innocent death helps the terrorists' cause by stirring anger against America and bringing them potential recruits.“

— George Soros
Context: War and occupation create innocent victims. We count the body bags of American soldiers; there have been more than 1000 in Iraq. The rest of the world also looks at the Iraqis who get killed daily. There have been 15 times more. Some were trying to kill our soldiers; far too many were totally innocent, including many women and children. Every innocent death helps the terrorists' cause by stirring anger against America and bringing them potential recruits.

„I wish I could write a book that will be read for as long as our civilization lasts...“

— George Soros
Context: I wish I could write a book that will be read for as long as our civilization lasts... I would value it much more highly than any business success if I could contribute to an understanding of the world in which we live or, better yet, if I could help to preserve the economic and political system that has allowed me to flourish as a participant. As quoted in The Winning Investment Habits of Warren Buffett & George Soros (2006) by Mark Tier, p. 219

„The Bush agenda is nationalistic: it emphasizes the use of force and ignores global problems whose solution requires international cooperation.“

— George Soros
Context: The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States. This is a harsh — indeed, for me, painful — thing to say, but unfortunately I am convinced it is true. The United States continues to set the agenda for the world in spite of its loss of influence since 9/11, and the Bush administration is setting the wrong agenda. The Bush agenda is nationalistic: it emphasizes the use of force and ignores global problems whose solution requires international cooperation. The rest of the world dances to the tune the United States is playing, and if that continues too long we are in danger of destroying our civilization. Changing the attitude and policies of the United States remains my top priority. Prologue, p. xvi

„First, there is no single sustainable model for national success. Second, the American model, which has indeed been successful, is not available to others, because our success depends greatly on our dominant position at the center of the global capitalist system, and we are not willing to yield it.“

— George Soros
Context: The supremacist ideology of the Bush Administration stands in opposition to the principles of an open society, which recognize that people have different views and that nobody is in possession of the ultimate truth. The supremacist ideology postulates that just because we are stronger than others, we know better and have right on our side. The very first sentence of the September 2002 National Security Strategy (the President's annual laying out to Congress of the country's security objectives) reads, "The great struggles of the twentieth century between liberty and totalitarianism ended with a decisive victory for the forces of freedom and a single sustainable model for national success: freedom, democracy, and free enterprise." The assumptions behind this statement are false on two counts. First, there is no single sustainable model for national success. Second, the American model, which has indeed been successful, is not available to others, because our success depends greatly on our dominant position at the center of the global capitalist system, and we are not willing to yield it.
