George Soros: The sound of one billionaire lashing

by Volker Weber

Some billionaires, like Warren Buffett, are known for their investment philosophy.

Some billionaires, like Bill Gates, are feared for their market dominance.

And some billionaires, like George Soros, can sound more like revolutionaries than pinstriped denizens of Wall Street.

At the University of Pennsylvania yesterday to promote his new book, George Soros on Globalization, Soros lashed out at the Bush administration's foreign policy. The President has fallen into a trap set by terrorists who wanted this country to go to war and sow the seeds for further acts of terrorism, he said.

"If we assess the foreign policy accomplishments of the Bush administration since Sept. 11, the scorecard is quite dismal," Soros said.
