Soros, 100 Supporters Call for Euro Measures, Handelsblatt Says

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Billionaire investor George Soros and 100 supporters, including politicians, managers and economists, called for immediate measures to solve the European debt crisis, Handelsblatt reported, citing a letter to the heads of the 17-nation currency bloc.

The signatories, among them former German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer, former German Finance Minister Hans Eichel, Emma Bonino, an Italian former minister for European Affairs, and Timothy Garton Ash, a professor of European Studies at Oxford University, wrote that national solutions for the debt crisis would inevitably lead to an European collapse, the newspaper said. Current measures are coming too late, are not sufficient and may trigger global tensions on financial markets, Handelsblatt said.
