George Soros was born in Hungary in 1930. He later fled to the United Kingdom where he graduated from the London school of economics. He served at an investment bank in London for several years at the entry level. Later on, he left for the United States in 1956 and joined the F.M Mayer firm in New York as an analytical and investment manager. Here, Soros worked for three years before joining Wertheim Company until 1963. From 1964, Soros moved to Arnhold and S. Bleichroeder until 1973 when he founded the Hudge Fund Company. Through Hudge Fund Company, Soros would manage Soros Fund for more than two decades before quitting the daily management of the Quantum Fund in the 1980s. He grew the Soros Fund’s profitability by 30% annually.
George Soros’ political endeavors
After relinquishing the routine operations of his company, Soros became a philanthropist. He donated a huge amount of money to open society foundation. After earning an honorary degree from Oxford University, Soros preferred to be identified as a financial, philanthropic, and philosophical speculator. As a political activist, Soros could lecture and write about the political position of the USA in respect to the world affairs on nytimes.com. He focused on education, human rights, and political freedom awareness.
In 2004, George Soros spent over $27 million in an attempt to take over from George Bush. In the recently concluded USA election on Time, he offered more than $25 million to support the Democrats campaign including Hillary Clinton, the 2016 presidential candidate under the Democratic ticket as indicated by the Democratic fundraising operatives. Soros and other associates promised to give more fund for the campaign as the election date drew closer.
With 25 years of relationship with Hillary Clinton, George Soros rejuvenated his engagement in politics on project-syndicate.org. Also, the fear for Donald Trump, who happened to be Soros business and investment rival fueled more likelihood of Soros’ involvement in politics. Soros describe Trump as a fear monger and compares him with terrorist groups like ISIS. Therefore, Soros describes the 2016 political stakes as being exceptionally high. Soros cites hostility in the Republican camp considering his standpoint in many years. For example, Soros’ fundamental reforms were religious tolerance, immigration reforms, and criminal justice reforms at http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1997/02/the-capitalist-threat/376773/. Soros investment rival, Donald Trump, represents extreme harmful reforms that Democrats and Soros describe as a threat to the coexistence of countries around the world.
Democracy Alliance donor club recently met to deliberate on the transformation agenda that Trump seeks to introduce in the first 100 days as the president of the USA. His reforms are perceived to be a threat to the Obama legacy. As a principal donor in the club, George Soros’ support for Obama and Hillary stands threatened. The fact that Soros attended the proceedings of the donors’ meeting demonstrates his commitment to oppose Trump’s presidency. Today, George Soros is regarded as an influential, progressive, and equitable political activist.
