Soros Event Will Bring Fresh Ideas to the Failed Global Economy

March 29, 2011


The economy is the basis of our existence – George Soros, 2010

I want to make it clear that I do not want to abolish capitalism. In spite of its shortcomings, it is better than the alternatives. Instead, I want to prevent the global capitalist system from destroying itself – – George Soros, 1998

INET is pleased to announce that it will hold its annual conference April 8-11, 2011 at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, the scene of the great conference that established a renewed global economic architecture as World War II drew to a close.

I am absolutely thrilled about this event and wish I was attending. Why am I thrilled? Because I am a longtime admirer of George Soros who is among other things, a philanthropist and humanitarian who has promoted human rights and social progress and independent media: Center for American Progress, Media Matters, and MoveOn.org.

This conference reflects INET’s dedication to inspiring and provoking new economic thinking. More than 200 academic, business and government policy thought leaders from around the world will be attending. Speakers include the former United Kingdom Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Mark Carney, Paul Volcker; George Soros, Adair Turner, Joseph Stiglitz, and Harold James.

What is INET? Institute for New Economic Thinking founded by George Soros.
