In 1970, Soros launched a hedge fund, Soros Fund Management, starting his journey to become one of the most successful investors in the United States. Later in 1979 he began his philanthropy by giving scholarships to black South Africans under the segragation and discrimination taking place during this time. He then decided he had enough money to begin The Open Society Foundations, a humanitarian effort supporting democracy and human rights in more than 100 countries while also helping with transitions from communism. Soros expanded his Philanthropy after the cold war, helping start America’s medical marijuana movement and becoming a vocal backer of same-sex marriage. His causes have changed over time but his ideals for an open society never shifted.
Not only does George Soros make good decisions with his money, he is also a best-selling author. His fourteen books share personal approaches on investing and business and offer his perspectives on politics, economics, globalization, philanthropy, and open societies. One of George Soros’ pieces of work, titled The Bubble of American Supremacy, combines economic trends with his passionate advocacy for open societies and decency in world politics.
Continuing to make liberal policies a priority, Soros bands with donors to resist the newly elected president, Donald Trump, and his disastrous agenda. Together, they make claims that Trump’s plans relentlessly attack our communities. Recently, George Soros has made headlines for contributing millions to organizations, like the People’s Climate March, who support resistance against Trump’s efforts. He was also big news for committing more than $25 million dollars to boost Hillary Clinton and other democratic candidates. The eighty-six year old, with a net worth of 25.2 billion U.S dollars, has given no indications of lowering his generosity to the left-wing ideologies anytime soon.
