Interview of George Soros by Wall Street Journal

December 20, 2011 | About:
This is a 34-minute interview with George Soros by Wall Street Journal. Soros mentioned Graham & Dodd many times. He discussed what he does with bubbles. Some quotes:

China is the main beneficiary of the collapse of international financial system. Regulations/regulars make the market more instable. Advices to investors:

If I see bubble, the first thing I will do is to buy, and ride the bubble. Once I see the flaw in the bubble, I start to sell. I cannot get the timing right, so I lost a lot of money. In the internet bubble, I shorted too soon.

You cannot expect investors to resist the bubble, you can expect to join the bubble until everyone join the bubble. Then an external force will deflate the bubble.

The regular will always be wrong, and they have to recognize that they will be wrong. They have to recognize market has moods.

George Soros, Godfather Of The Left Gives 0 Million To Liberal Causes

The reader should be reminded that the 'generosity' of Soros' giving to subversive organizations is made possible due to your tax-exempt subsidies granted to him through his tax-free foundations. Is this what Lenin meant by "They'll sell the rope to hang themselves" ?

ChasVoice, IMO you are a troll, a bigot, and you are full of shit. The German government has acknowledged that the missiles were shipped from Germany under its supervision, and that it wasn't the first such shipment.

Please go to some other Forum to shit. IMO your kind is not wanted around here.
