May e-book of the month
The New Paradigm for Financial Markets:
The Credit Crisis of 2008 and What It Means
by George Soros
George Soros, the legendary financier, philanthropist and bestselling author, has written a new book on the current financial crisis that will be available as the NetLibrary eBook of the Month selection for May. Print editions of this thought-provoking new work will not be released until May 19.
In The New Paradigm for Financial Markets: The Credit Crisis of 2008 and What It Means, Soros explores the origins of the current financial crisis and its implications for the future. Soros, whose breadth of experience in financial markets is unrivaled, places the current crisis in the context of decades of study of how individuals and institutions handle the boom and bust cycles that now dominate global economic activity. "This is the worst financial crisis since the 1930s," writes Soros in characterizing the scale of financial distress spreading across Wall Street and other financial centers around the world.
The New Paradigm for Financial Markets will be available with free, unlimited access May 1-31, 2008. Visit the Butler L.W. Nixon Library at http://www.butlercc.edu/nixon_library/ today.
