George Soros, born in 1930, lived under a nationalist pro-Nazi Hungarian regime. Soros escaped to London, England where he studied finance, then coming to America where he put his education to work gaining tremendous wealth.
In 1984 George Soros set up the Open Society Foundation for the purpose of enhancing education through copy machines in universities, libraries and civil society groups in his homeland for the reprint of documents and publications that had been banned by the regime could again be read and studied. His foundation contributed with advice in the transition to democracy and free markets on Politico. Meanwhile, George Soros continued to build his wealth in America advancing his popularity in the world of finance and the political arena.
Today, George Soros plays a partisan role in America’s political field, working with the Democratic Party for such causes as “Black Lives Matter”, while pushing his ideas through the Open Society Foundations around the world. Soros stands out in a type of liberalism representing the Democratic influence in America and his fight against anti-Semitism forces him to become outspoken in his cause.
In his homeland, Hungary, Soros set aside $500 million “for investments that specifically address the needs of migrants, refugees, and host communities.” Today, in the United States, George Soros continues his efforts with a donation commitment of $25 million to Hillary Clinton’s campaign on Snopes and other candidates in the Democratic Party.
It is noted that George Soros has accumulated a fortune somewhere in the area of $24.9 billion through his financial ventures and investments on Forbes. People who surround Soros note that he appears to be more engaged in politics lately than he has been in years, and his belief in Hillary Clinton winning the Office of President of the United States. His engagement in this election supporting Hillary Clinton dominated the media with his political enthusiasm on discoverthenetworks.org. He is strong in his beliefs and adamant in his dedication, although the outcome of the election did not favor a win for Hillary Clinton.
With the stock market meeting challenges, rising to the occasion, Soros spends much of his time monitoring his investments in the world market. Soros owns such companies as Savient Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. Petrobras, First Solar, Inc., China Mobile Ltd., United Therapeutics Corporation, Energy Solutions and many more. He also owns interests in MasterCard, Inc., NCR Corp., Logitech International S.A. and dozens of other large firms in America.
What’s next on George Soros’ agenda will most likely fall under the umbrella of 2017 financial atmosphere and the fluctuation of the worldwide investment market. He will certainly keep a close watch on the new administration and how this will affect the growth of his investments. There is always some minor turmoil at the beginning of a new administration and hopefully, the market will not experience much diversity.
George Soros announced a partnership with Mastercard CEO Ajay Banga to create a Humanity Venture designed to disburse aid to refugees. This plan is also designed to provide financial tools to assist the refugees in rebuilding their lives internationally.
