George Soros is ranked among the top five richest men in the world. He has a net worth of more than 25 billion dollars. His current success is commendable, especially considering his humble start. George was born in Hungary in 1930, during a time when the Nazis had occupied the country. When Soros was a teenager, he was forced to flee the country, because he is of Jewish descent, and move to England. He took up a series of odd jobs such as being a busboy to pay his way through the London School of Economics. When he graduated from the school, he worked in some companies before he started his first hedge fund with a capital of $12million and read full article.
Even though he later made it big, especially in the black Wednesday short sale of $10 billion sterling pounds, making a billion pounds in profit, the persecution he had faced in Hungary stayed with him. It inspired him to participate in activities which are meant for the improvement of the society. After the black Wednesday short sale, he moved to the US and started operating his businesses from there. He began the George Soros Foundation, the organization that has been planning and executing all the open society support programs that the Soros Foundation has helped and learn more about George Soros.
George has always had a passion for helping the downtrodden in the society. He spoke up for the black South African students who had been denied the opportunity to access higher education during the apartheid regime. He has also been a supporter of the liberals and most of the policies that they propose. For instance, when Bush invaded Afghanistan, he was disappointed by the ruthless killing and displacement of innocent civilians. He decided to fund John Kerry in his attempt to get Bush from the White House in 2004. Even though Kerry was unsuccessful, the open society foundations which he had been supporting, went on lobbying for the ideals they saw in the liberal candidate and George Soros’s lacrosse camp.
In 2007, he supported Clinton in the primaries. The support was because he has always been impressed by the type of politics that Hillary plays. She, however, lost to Obama in the primaries and he supported Obama into the White House and what George Soros knows. In the just-concluded presidential election, he had made it known earlier on that he would be supporting Clinton. George still does not feel that Trump is the right person to be in the white house, because of his temper, the things that he stands for and his beliefs. He has been funding PACs and other groups to stay relevant and perform checks and balances on the Trump administration. Soros is determined to make a lot of difference in the world and more information click here.
