The world has its fair share of billionaires alright. But as far as those who have a heart as big as their bank accounts, we can only mention a few and thankfully, one of them is none other than George Soros.
Mr. George Soros was born on August 12th, 1930 a Hungarian American who rose to the highest level through smart investing. His story is an inspiring one since he has gone through a lot of hardships to get to where he is at the moment, which is comfortably at the top of the food chain.
He survived the Nazi in Hungary and fled to England back in 1947 where his success journey officially begun when he joined London School of Economics. Throughout the years, his net worth has increased immensely, to the tune of about $25 billion dollars, securing him a spot in the top 30 richest people in the world!
According to an article in Politico magazine, George Soros who had taken a hiatus from the public eye and his humane ways made a comeback in a big way, catching the attention of everyone else in a right way. And the article dubbed, George Soros rises again, made sure that it had included all of the details about how he came back in a big way.
The last time George Soros was heard of was when he donated a whopping $27 million as he tried to defeat the former president George W. Bush back in 2004. But then after almost a twelve-year absence, he was back again, boosting Hillary Clinton’s campaign with a staggering $25 million.
Apart from having such an impressively long and fruitful life as a witty investor, Mr. Soros has also had a say on quite some pertinent issues. And given the fact that he has a lot of experience, people have given him an audience only to benefit from his years of wisdom.
On the threat of capitalism on the Atlantic, Mr. George Soros was quoted in a 1997 issue saying that it’s about time that they let the free market decide what matters and what doesn’t. But that said, he still went ahead and doing so will undermine the fundamental values which open and democratic societies depend on. Visit this site to know more at opensocietyfoundations.org.
He also went ahead and stated that in as much as capitalism is a threat, it wasn’t as bad as totalitarianism which takes away all of the freedoms. George Soros also admits that open market is complicated and it would need so much more than what is being done to turn it into a reality. If the capitalism is to be replaced, then it has to be with a system that is more complicated than it is, meaning that every possible resource ought to be used, including outside assistance.
