CNN (Financial Times) -- George Soros has issued a passionate plea to the German government to lead the eurozone out of recession by boosting growth, creating a joint fiscal authority and guaranteeing common bonds, or itself leave the currency union to save the future of Europe.
"Lead or leave: this is a legitimate decision for Germany to make," the billionaire financier and philanthropist said in an interview with the Financial Times. "Either throw in your fate with the rest of Europe, take the risk of sinking or swimming together, or leave the euro, because if you have left, the problems of the eurozone would get better."
"It is entirely dependent on Germany's attitude," he added. "If they insist on a policy of austerity, of reinforcing the current deflationary stance, and they won't budge from that, then in fact it would even be better for them in the long run [to leave]."
