Soros: 'Germany Must Lead or Leave' Euro
Despite his radical proposal of a German exit, Soros would prefer to see Germany embrace a "historic opportunity" to take on the role of a "benevolent hegemon," as the U.S. did by providing $13 billion -- or 5% of its 1948 GDP -- to Europe at the end of World War II through the Marshall Plan.
"Imperial power can bring great benefits, but it must be earned by looking after those who live under its aegis," Soros contends.
