"George Soros became instantly famous on September 22, 1992, when, believing the Pound sterling was overvalued, he speculated heavily against it. The Bank of England was forced to withdraw the currency out of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism, and Soros earned an estimated US$1 billion in the process. He was dubbed "the man who broke the Bank of England."" --Sholem Stein
