George Soros’ Path to Political Power

The progressive side of the political spectrum has precious few billionaires willing to throw their weight behind it, at least in the United States. So, the rise of George Soros and his return to the political game is a super important step for progressive politicians to get back at it against their big spending right wing opposition. George Soros has mostly been out of the spotlight and out of mainstream politics since his run with Al Gore back in 2004 but something sparked him to return and that something was Donald J. Trump. The 2016 Presidential Election was one of the most divisive moments in the United States political world that didn’t involve a war and the repercussions of Soros return and the election of Trump will be studied for years to come.

George Soros was born in Hungary but he was forced to flee the country when it became occupied by Nazis. Soros saw firsthand how an oppressive, populist regime could terrify and embolden all of the worst concepts of a country and so he has spent the majority of his life combating those very traits. Soros immigrated to London where he would work his way through the London School of Economics, studying the philosophies that would later form the groundwork for his philanthropic giving and political endeavors. Soros would eventually graduate from University before setting sail to America. When he arrived in America, Soros would go on to establish the Soros Hedge Fund and thus work his way up to becoming a self made billionaire. Read more about George’s life story at biography.com

After making his fortune Soros would immediately get to work on making an impact politically. He worked alongside progressives and left leaning democrats in order to create a name for himself, culminating with a semi successful funding of Al Gore in 2004. Now George Soros is back in politics and supporting Hillary Clinton and the rest of the progressive politicians that were running in 2016 and will run again in 2018 and 2020. Michael Vachon, the political adviser to George Soros, said that the primary reason for Soros’ return to politics was simple: the rising tide of dangerous populist rhetoric had raised the stakes so much that he felt obliged to return.

George Soros return was met with progressive adulation and more than a little bit of negativity from conservatives. There are precious few billionaires who are willing to sacrifice their riches for the greater good, but Soros is one of them — a rarity for conservatives. Soros would go on to donate over $25 million to progressives up and down the ticket, including $7 million straight to a pro-Clinton committee. Now with the election over, we can expect Soros to double down and continue to ramp up his support. Read this article at Washington Times.

Matthew Autterson’s Successful Career as an Investment Manager

As children, we were taught how to save. Most of us had piggybanks when we were growing up. What your parents probably didn’t teach you is how to invest your money after you save enough; a very important step of your life as an adult. What most people do is hire investment managers to professionally oversee their finances when they redirect saved monies towards profit generation activities.

But what exactly does an investment manager do? Investment management, also referred to as private banking, portfolio management, or money management involves the professional management of securities such as real estate, shares, bonds, and other assets. If you have some cash invested but you’re too tied up with other activities, you can hire an investment manager to oversee these investments to earn maximum benefits.

Some of the top investment management firms in the US include Fidelity Investments Money Management Inc., Goldman Sachs Asset Management LP, Wellington Management Co. LLP, J.P. Morgan Asset Management, and Vanguard Group Inc.; among others.
