    The topic, though still relevant unfortunately is a bit dated I m only upset that the title actually gets avant treatment Soros spends a lot of time describing the ills of the Bush administration, and what he s done around the world to try to make things better in general He doesn t actually get into the specifics of the bubble he s described, as he goes only into the most cursory detail about its formation I found that disappointing, and wanted chapters like his last, which actually tried tyin [...]

    Soros explains bubbles and consequent busts in a very powerful way as overstating reality Take the housing bubble while it is true that, over the long term , real estate increases in value Mark Twain They aren t making any , it does not increase faster than the combination of population growth inflation When we act as if real estate will be worth next year, no matter how much it sells for this year, we create a bubble which is bound to burst painfully sooner or later The correction is also bou [...]

    Very light reading Always interesting to hear the opinions of one of the world s most influential men However, I would recommend this only as airplane reading for those interested in geopolitics and the topics of post imperial America that folks like Chalmers Johnson, Francis Fukuyama and others discuss at greater and far interesting depth than Soros But hey, he s the billionaire that controls the world so what do I know

    I had heard people complaining about Soros online, so I decided to do some research Published in 2004, this was basically about the Bush administration and Soros hope that the president would not succeed in winning a second term Oh well However, I could not help but note how some of the mistakes that GW did are being attempted by Trump Soros warns, It is the task of the president to provide leadership, and it is only natural for politicians to twist, exploit, or manipulate events to promote thei [...]

    I read this with the intention of learning something Aside from a few chapters, it was largely rhetoric to defeat President Bush in the 2004 elections Soros denies this Thus, this book is dated It was like listening to talk radio The author does provide some ideas that make good sense However, it is all in the execution.

    I d probably give this about 2.5 stars if I could, but, unfortunately, that is not an option The Bubble of American Supremacy Correcting the Misuse of American Power is based on criticisms that I generally agree with George Bush and his cabinet led us into war dishonestly and without proper justification This enmeshed the United States in a quagmire that was impossible to exit without leaving things in worse shape than they were previously However, I don t agree with most of Soros s recommendati [...]

    George Soros presents a driven account of the first three years of the Bush presidency, comparing the excesses of the administration s foreign policy to the boom bust cycle of financial markets Soros argues that reality and the perception of that reality often diverge, while constantly affecting each other When the divergence becomes too extreme, a bubble is created, in this case, the Bubble of American Supremacy Much of the conceptual groundwork is based on his most famous work, The Alchemy of [...]

    I admire Soros passion and candid perspectives on the dangers of Bush s aggressive and unilateral foreign policy doctrine It takes a certain degree of boldness to make such ardent arguments against a current president in the hope of influencing an election outcome However, at times I found the arguments contradictory Soros wants multilateral action but supports US s intervention in Kosovo without UN authorization and wished the US had avoided the UN in Bosnia Soros is certainly constructive in [...]

    I did not rate this book higher for two reasons One, a lot of what Soros writes about is stuff I have read elsewhere It is not that he is a bad writer It simply is a matter that I have seen a lot of the material in other places already The first part of the book is a summary basically of the mistakes and deception of the Bush administration and its neocon cronies Much of this is already known to anyone who is well informed Second, the book has dated a bit Soros wrote in to coincide with the 2004 [...]

    Soro s lays out the failed foreign policy of American Supremacy practiced by the neocons of the Bush Administration and presents a compelling vision for a new foreign policy The insights on how the necons stole our foreign policy can be drab for those who already know the story but Soro s vision should get a good hearing.

    An easy read about Bush doctrine era, terrorism and numerous mistakes of power plays The role of a supreme power to be a guiding hand instead of a bully outlined and put in context of a world that needs empathy and fair treatment for all to jointly succeed.Unintended consequences to catastrophic events

    I love Soros perspective and amazing level of intelligence and comprehension about global trends I read this on a 10 hour flight and couldn t put it down of course, I was taking an entrance exam for Columbia within days, so that could have been a motivating factor.

    By now it s a little out of date, but a brief and good overview of the W Bush first term foreign policy, and the Iraq war His ideas are good but the book is wanting of depth, as to establish legitimacy behind his arguments It s far too one sided.

    Typically Soros, it attempts to break through the propaganda and address the issues as he sees it You have to love a man that has so much money and yet does not show the academic and intellectual laziness for which on in his position is normally susceptible.
