My South African friend Prieur du Plessis sent me an email over the weekend that this was must see financial tv:
George Soros, of Soros Fund Management, has just launched a new book “The New Paradigm for Financial Markets: The Credit Crisis of 2008 and What it Means”, which will arouse considerable interest. Coinciding with the launch, Chrystia Freeland, US managing editor of Financial Times, conducted a three-part video interview with Soros on a variety of highly topical issues.
Part 1 Soros talks about the credit crunch and the recession, and says the Fed was right to rescue Bear Stearns.

After you launch part 1, Look to the right of the video for parts 2 and 3 on FT’s site.
In Part 2 Soros discusses the incipient commodities bubble, and
believes there will be a need for a new Basel accord on banking
supervision. He also discusses China and believes that the US housing
market problems are just building up.
Part 3 Soros talks about the US dollar, US leadership in the world and
his support for Barack Obama, who he feels is the candidate who will
create the most change for America’s future.
