Living in a Nazi occupied Hungary, the young George Soros have experienced the cruelty of the Second World War. He witnessed the torture and execution of his own people, and if not for his family taking him for hiding, he might have been one of the casualties of the war. After the Second World War, George Soros decided to move to London and study at one of the best universities in the city – at the London School of Economics. He took up a course related to business and economics, and he had to work several jobs for him to be able to go to school. He had to endure several years of hard work, but all of it paid off after he graduated. George Soros decided to immigrate to the United States to experience the American Dream, but it was never easy for him. He thought of so many ways on how to earn money, but being an employee is not enough. He decided to try trading at the stock market, and studied how it works.
At first, he had a successful trade, and because of the skills and knowledge that he acquired, he soon mastered how it works and he is earning more money. He built his business empire through trading, and accumulated a huge amount of wealth that he never thought he would earn. In 1970, George Soros created his hedge fund, earning more profit, and he was soon recognized as one of the richest people in the United States and one of the most successful traders in history.The money that he accumulated over the years of trading and business were used to support groups and organizations which advocates for a liberal society. He established the Open Society Foundation to identify these groups, and he sends them money to support their causes.
One of the most recent events that George Soros supported would be the Ferguson Protests and the candidacy of Hillary Clinton for the 2016 United States Presidential Election. It was reported that he have donated more than $33 million to support several groups and organizations who advocates for a more liberal society, and the incident in Ferguson involves those who are part of the Open Society Foundation. They mobilized different groups across the United States to go to the city of Ferguson and protest about the violent killings of black people by the police. On the other hand, it was reported that George Soros donated $25 million to the Democrat Party, in support of his friend Hillary Clinton. He even attended the rallies in support of the democrat candidate, but it did not turn up well for both of them. George Soros, however, promised that he will keep supporting liberal groups and organizations under the Open Society Foundation.
