George Soros Returns to Political Life for his “Open Society”

After many decades of commitment to liberal ideals, George Soros has again entered the political turmoil between those who believe in an open society and those who want it closed to outsiders. In his youth, it was the Nazis who invaded his native Hungary and the Communists who came to power after the war. Now, with a lifetime of wealth at his disposal, he is funding like-minded movements to promote democracy, free speech, and education throughout the world.

According to Forbes, George Soros has a net worth of 25.2 billion dollars. He made his fortune on Wall Street and other financial markets around the world, as the manager of hedge funds that created wealth for their investors. He studied Finance at the London School of Economics after fleeing Hungary and worked his way through school. After graduating, George Soros moved to New York, where he soon made a name for himself on Wall Street. Read his profile at Forbes.

Even as his university years taught him the groundwork of what would later become financial genius, he also found a kindred mindset in the writing of Karl Popper, who described an “Open Society” where people of different backgrounds, beliefs, and ideologies could live together in harmony. For Popper, and later Soros, the book was a blueprint for the sort of world he wanted to live in.

The book gave George Soros a name for his foundation in 1984. The Open Society Foundation dedicated itself to promoting knowledge and education as a means of encouraging the liberal spirit. One of their first tasks was delivering copy machines to universities and civil society groups in his native Hungary so students and citizens could read banned books and other publications.

For a short time in American politics, between the George W. Bush and Donald Trump Presidencies, George Soros stayed on the sidelines of the most heated debates. During those years, he focused mainly on international and other issues, but when Donald Trump started campaigning on a nationalist, America-First agenda, he emerged again as a boogeyman of the right.

During the heated 2016 campaign, he donated over 25 million dollars to the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and other Democratic Party candidates. He also donated extensively to Black Lives Matter and voter registration campaigns to ensure that their causes would not be overlooked during the larger political struggles. After Donald Trump won the election, he continued to donate and speak out against the new president’s policies. Learn more about this article at washingtontimes.com.

Also in 2017, George Soros named a new Chief Investment Officer for his family’s Soros Fund Management. Dawn Fitzpatrick is one of Wall Street’s most successful female investors and is now the seventh CIO at the Soros Fund. The portfolio holds 30 billion dollars in assets.

Marc Sparks Gives Entrepreneurs a Different Way to Look at Business

Marc Sparks has lived a rather full life. He has emerged himself in the process of building and investing in businesses. He is a man of faith, and one of his favorite verses, as listed on his website, is from Luke 12:48. I find this interesting that a business man would share his faith, but Marc is certainly a believer that much will be required of those who have given much.Learn more : http://thebrotalk.com/bro-recommendations/dallas-entrepreneur-marc-sparks-spills-must-visit-list-wineries-dfw/

I think that Marc is an amazing guy that has been given much so I am totally aware of his desire to also give back to others. He has done this giving back through the Highland Park United Methodist Church. He has also done this by giving back to the Samaritan Inn and Habitat for Humanity. I think that it is amazing that Marc has not stopped there. He has also given back to people through his books and blogs.Learn more : https://twitter.com/msparks5010?lang=en

What Marc Sparks had done is essentially give business owners a much needed road map for navigating their businesses in the right way. He has managed to do some interesting things in the business world. Sparks has created a helpful resource in the form of a book called “They Can’t Eat You.” Marc Sparks has called this an unorthodox path to what he knows and believes to be a road to success. The Timber Creek Capital company is where he has built his great success, but that is just a small part of his investments.

Marc Sparks has made a lot of other people successful by helping them pursue their dreams. He has become the person that helps people realize those things that may not even seem like a reality. This is what he has been able to do with his Spark Tank challenge that he started. I certainly believe that he is trying to give people a chance to realize what they need to do. He tells people about venture capitalism. He gives people some advice on how they would be able to make their businesses better while they are competing.

Marc Sparks has certainly helped entrepreneurs rise above the challenges that they face. In some instances he has even invested in businesses that he believes in. This is something that he has done over the years as he has become a serial investor. He has put time and effort in organizations like Mommies in Need and Dogs Matter. These are two organizations that grew from competition in the Spark Tank. He is all about grooming socially conscious entrepreneurs, and I think that this makes the world a better place. Many of these businesses would not get traditional funding, but Marc Sparks is giving these businesses exposure.
