Джордж Со́рос — американский трейдер, финансист, инвестор, филантроп. Сторонник теории открытого общества и противник «рыночного фундаментализма» . Создатель сети благотворительных организаций, известных как «Фонд Сороса». Член исполнительного комитета International Crisis Group. На 2016 год его состояние оценивается в 24,9 млрд долларов США.

Его деятельность вызывает неоднозначную оценку в разных странах и различных кругах общества. О Соросе часто говорят как о финансовом спекулянте, «человеке, который разорил Банк Англии», от его имени образован термин «соросы» для обозначения крупных спекулянтов, которые запускают валютные кризисы для «наживы и удовольствия» . Его также считают сторонником легализации марихуаны для применения в медицинских целях.

„Финансовые рынки не могут правильно учитывать будущее – они вообще не учитывают будущего, они помогают сформировать его.“

„Когда человек берёт на себя серьёзный риск, ему необходима внутренняя дисциплина.“

„Для успеха необходим досуг. Нужно время, которое безраздельно принадлежит только вам.“

„Я всегда прошу помощников делиться своими трудностями; всегда стараюсь их поддерживать, конечно, если они готовы признать, что у них есть проблемы.“

„I'm only rich because I know when I'm wrong.“

„It is much easier to put existing resources to better use, than to develop resources where they do not exist.“

„Misconceptions play a prominent role in my view of the world.“

„It's not whether you're right or wrong, but how much money you make when you're right and how much you lose when you're wrong.“

„How good are markets in predicting real-world developments? Reading the record, it is striking how many calamities that I anticipated did not in fact materialise.

Financial markets constantly anticipate events, both on the positive and on the negative side, which fail to materialise exactly because they have been anticipated.

It is an old joke that the stock market has predicted seven of the last two recessions. Markets are often wrong.“

„I commissioned two political experts to advise me about what I could do to oppose the re-election of President Bush.“

„The fact that a thesis is flawed does not mean that we should not invest in it as long as other people believe in it and there is a large group of people left to be convinced. The point was made by John Maynard Keynes when he compared the stock market to a beauty contest where the winner is not the most beautiful contestant but the one whom the greatest number of people consider beautiful. Where I have something significant to add is in pointing out that it pays to look for the flaws; if we find them, we are ahead of the game because we can limit our losses when the market also discovers what we already know. It is when we are unaware of what could go wrong that we have to worry.“ The Alchemy of Finance

„At present, the developed countries condescend to the developing ones.“ The Age of Fallibility: Consequences of the War on Terror

„In my view, philanthropy goes against the grain; therefore it generates a lot of hypocrisy and many paradoxes. Here are some examples: Philanthropy is supposed to be devoted to the benefit of others, but philanthropists are primarily concerned with their own benefit; philanthropy is supposed to help people, yet it often makes people dependent and turns them into objects of charity; applicants tell foundations what they want to hear, then proceed to do what the applicant wants to do.“

„Values are closely associated with with the concept of self - a reflexive concept if ever there was one. What we think has a much greater bearing on what we are than on the world around us. What we are cannot possibly correspond to what we think we are, but there is a two-way interplay between the two concepts. As we make our way in the world our sense of self evolves. The relationship between what we think we are and what we are in reality is the key to happiness - in other words, it provides the subjective meaning of life.“ The Alchemy of Finance
