Speaking at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation International Conference on Philanthropy, Soros said the 27-member European Union had been known as a group of peers before the crisis but has since become known as a divided community made up of creditors and borrowers.
Ekathimerini reported the division has left Greeks feeling "cheated" and has sparked anger toward immigrants.
Soros urged an EU-wide solution be found, rather than having each country come up with its own response to the economic downturn.
