I first became intrigued by Soros by reading his "George Soros On Globalization"
- which I bought because it had a well-designed cover and was short (see
it on Amazon!) His main premise here is that the antiglobalization
protestors make some good points against existing global financial institutions
such as the WTO, IMF, etc. The point I sympathized with the most is simply
that these organizations are not democratic, yet have as much or more
influence than our elected officials. Nevertheless, Soros says, tearing
them down won't help anybody except the anarchists. Let's
reform them instead -
and he goes into clear and succinct detail on how to do that.
