George Soros shared his thinking on economics and politics in a five-part lecture series recorded at Central European University in 2009. The lectures were the culmination of a lifetime of practical and philosophical reflection.
In the following lecture, which is of particular interest to investors, Soros discussed his general theory of reflexivity and its application to financial markets, providing insights into the financial crisis of 2008. Other lectures examined the concept of open society, which had guided Soros’s global philanthropy, as well as the potential for conflict between capitalism and open society. The closing lecture focused on the way ahead, examining the important economic and political role that China would play in the future.
