Synopsis

This book includes a new chapter by Soros on the secrets to his success along with a new preface and introduction. It also includes a new foreword by renowned economist Paul Volcker. 'An extraordinary ...inside look into the decision-making process of the most successful money manager of our time. Fantastic' - "The Wall Street Journal". George Soros is unquestionably one of the most powerful and profitable investors in the world today. Dubbed by "Business Week" as 'the Man who Moves Markets', Soros made a fortune competing with the British pound and remains active today in the global financial community.Now, in this special edition of the classic investment book, "The Alchemy of Finance", Soros presents a theoretical and practical account of current financial trends and a new paradigm by which to understand the financial market today. This edition's expanded and revised introduction details Soros' innovative investment practices along with his views of the world and world order. He also describes a new paradigm for the 'theory of reflexivity' which underlies his unique investment strategies.

Filled with expert advice and valuable business lessons, "The Alchemy of Finance" reveals the timeless principles of an investing legend. This special edition will feature a new chapter by Soros on the secrets of his success and a new foreword by the Honorable Paul Volcker, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve. George Soros (New York, NY) is President of Soros Fund Management and Chief Investment Advisor to Quantum Fund N.V., a $12 billion international investment fund.Besides his numerous ventures in finance, Soros is also extremely active in the worlds of education, culture, and economic aid and development through his Open Society Fund and the Soros Foundation.

Format: Taschenbuch
In this book, Soros openly admits that he is completely unable to predict major developments in finance and economics. In addition, he admits that he has never been able to profit consistently in commodities markets. What does that leave us with? Soros is a glorified stock picker, and the Quantum Fund, a glorified mutual fund. Soros does not discuss equity analysis techniques, however; the book is comprised of macroeconomic analysis and prediction which is - by Soros' own admission - of questionable value.
Indeed, it is almost embarassing to read Soros' predictions - that the dollar will depreciate dramatically in the 90s, that Japan will surpass the US as economic leader, that the US economy will succomb to fiscal and trade deficits. Soros' predictions are not just wrong, they are the complete opposite of what actually has occurred.
Soros argues that he cannot predict anything, he can only explain economic developments as they unfold. If his predictions are invalid, however, why are his explanations valid? His predictions and explanations are premised on the same set of erroneous beliefs.
Those seeking practical and accurate financial theory should not read this book. Those seeking chapters like The Quandary of the Social Sciences and Reagan's Imperial Circle are invited to tackle this self-aggrandizing book. Better choices: Intermarket Technical Analysis by Murphy or Macro Trading and Investment Strategies by Burstein.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Matt d am 8. August 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
This deep and profound book has been criticized by many as being opaque and unreadable. While Soros's writing style is rather obscure to say the least, this does not alter the fact that this book contains some of the most original and advanced ideas ever conceived of in the field of finance. Soros's exceptional analytical abilities shine through, despite the turgid prose. I must stress though that this is not a book for beginners - you definitely need a reasonable grasp of markets, global capital flows, and economic theory to fully understand the book.
Soros begins by introducing his theory of reflexivity. This involves situations where people's judgement of fundamentals (e.g. trusts buying and selling of stocks, or banks providing credit) can actually alter the fundamentals. For example, if banks lend lots of money to Mexico, this means Mexico can spend more and increase its GDP for a year or two. This increase in GDP then makes Mexico seem more creditworthy, so influencing banks to lend even more. Clearly if sentiment changes, the cycle can work in reverse, which will cause a self-reinforcing crash, as happened in Asia in 1998.
While his theoretical framework is interesting, the real strength of this book is in Soros's analysis of the financial markets from the 1970s into the mid-80s. It is fascinating to see him analyse the major structural changes of that era (e.g. the savings and loans fiasco, the incredible boom and bust in the dollar, the stockmarket bull run, the 3rd world debt crisis, the collapse of OPEC) as they unfold, and even better to see how he fits this information into his real-time trading.

This book will be studied for years to come for its profound insights on markets and investing. It's a tough read, though. Probably impossible to understand unless you've first read stuff by and about the philosophy of Karl Popper. Read/understand Popper first. Then Soros. Good intruductions to Popper are: Brian Magee's PHILOSOPHY AND THE REAL WORLD, and Popper's autobiography, UNENDED QUEST

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Jose R. Gonzalez am 11. Februar 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
A very detailed and interesting recollection of Soros'finance strategy. But at the end of the book I am left with the feeling that the reason why he asks for so much regulation is because it is easier to forecast and influence the regulator than the market. I would trust him with my money but not with a classroom of economics students.

In The Alchemy of Finance George Soros describes the intellectual framework on which his remarkable investment success is based. Soros explains all aspects of this framework in a clear and understandable manner using examples ranging from the rise and collapse of Real Estate Investment Trusts in the 1970s to the international debt problem of the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Soros also provides a detailed description of how he translates the intellectual underpinnings of his approach into actual investment decisions. In doing so, he offers a rare view into the inner workings of the most successful hedge fund in history during its most successful period.
The final part of the book is perhaps the most fascinating. In it Soros deals with several subjects, including systemic reform and the stock market crash of 1987.
George Soros is a brilliant, knowledgeable and experienced human being. By reading The Alchemy of Finance readers can profit from those three attributes.

Format: Taschenbuch
I rate this book as a two because it is hard to find the insight put forth. If you can follow Mr. Soros's writing, you are a better person than I am. The fact that the book is written like a diary does nothing to make it easier to read. Aside from a few short economic lessons, I found the book to be way over my head, and I do not consider myself an amateur investor. Unless you are looking to trade currency swaps and futures, I would recommend that you avoid this book. George Soros is an ivesting legend, but this is more like a philosophy textbook than anything else
