For example, his investment in France’s Societe Generale led to charges of insider trading and eventual conviction, notes Eastham, “and he was a minority partner in a group that failed to acquire the Washington Nationals Major League baseball team.”

But these failings stand out in the life of this remarkably successful Hungarian-American financier, philanthropist and thinker, in contrast to his stubborn refusal to fail in virtually every other venture.
