Everyone likes to be awed by certain types of people. People like to talk about filthy rich people, and people with whom they disagree. Or, they might like to talk about people who awe them and make them wonder. Then, they like to talk about people that have done much more than others have ever done.
George Soros fits all those categories. Love him or hate him, George Soros is a man who says what he does, and does what he says.
According to Forbes, George Soros is one of the ten richest hedge fund managers in the world. With his own fortune listed at over ten billion dollars, and managing another 25 billion dollars in funds for others, it is plain to see that George Soros is a man who knows exactly what he is doing.
One has to stand in awe at someone who ran and hid from Nazis during World War Two, and then left Hungary and went to England. There, he went to school. No, he didn’t dilly dally around while in school, he earned degrees in economics. Right out of school, Mr. Soros joined an investment firm. Visit projectsyndicate.com to know more about George.
He always held a passion for the rejected people of the world, for those who, like him, have been devastated by tyranny and oppression.
It is this hatred of oppression and care for the oppressed that has fueled Mr. Soros’ ideology for years and years. He was very helpful to Eastern Europeans during the communist regimes that ruled those countries until the collapse of the Soviet Union. After that, he started an organization that helped the former oppressed people adapt to a new way of life under a democratic form of government.
He has always helped the poor, the oppressed. He has single handedly given to more charities and given more money to those charities than any single person, living or dead. Yes, Mr. Soros makes a lot of money, but Mr. Soros is a philanthropist. His desire is to help people and further his causes of democracy politically and economically.
George Soros has stood up to some rather strange dislike by others, and he stands very tall and very straight. He has been accused of being a very powerful political figure. But then again, maybe that claim by others is brought on by the fear they feel when they think about a man of Mr. Soros’ background and action.
