Soros on Europe

An interesting transcript of a talk given by George Soros last week on his view of economic theory, bubbles, and the European crisis:

"It took some time for the financial markets to discover that government bonds which had been considered riskless are subject to speculative attack and may actually default; but when they did, risk premiums rose dramatically. This rendered commercial banks whose balance sheets were loaded with those bonds potentially insolvent. And that constituted the two main components of the problem confronting us today: a sovereign debt crisis and a banking crisis which are closely interlinked."

We are, as I have said, one equation short. Keynes
