What would you do if you were a member of the world’s top 100 richest people? Would you do the things that most people would do such as take a vacation to an exotic location, buy a helicopter to travel around town or blow hundreds of thousands at a casino? While there is nothing wrong with those things, a person with lot of money can do a lot more.
Take George Soros for instance. This billionaire magnate is a member of the top 100 people in the world. His net worth in 2017 was $30 billion-dollars. This huge sum of money is almost unrealistic for the average person. However, for a guy like Soros; it’s what he is used to having. He donated $18 billion of his wealth to his Open Society Foundations back in October of 2017.
Soros graduated from the London School of Economics way back in the 1950s. He eventually went on to become an investment broker. As a matter of fact, George Soros amassed a fortune through his investment ventures and ultimately ended up making billions of dollars by the time he was in his 50’s. Once Soros made more money than he needed to live; he took the bulk of assets and decided to help billions of other people from around the globe.
In 1979 he started his Open Society Foundations which is a non-profit organization that provides support to liberal organizations across the planet. He helps social and political groups within the United States and in other countries. Soros is the type of guy that puts his money where his mouth is. If there is a social or political group that is trying to advance a just cause, Soros will help in the process. As long as an organization is pushing to keep societies free and open; Soros will contribute.
Many conservative people think that Soros is a boogeyman trying to demonize politics and the world. They believe that he is trying to advance the cause of liberalism at the expense of other people. While Soros wants to keep the world’s society free and open; he is not about creating imbalance in the world. Even Soros realizes that capitalism and democracy has its problems. He also works hard to keep the negative issues related to open societies under control.
People must understand that Soros has been making contributions and donations to society for years. He wants to make sure that peoples liberties are not taken away by government or a corrupt political party. Soros’s donations ensure that liberal social and political groups have a chance to thrive now and in the future.
