Kick Ass Style for Kick Ass People
What does $5.8 Billion dollars do you might wonder. Soros invest in many things throughout the years. He proudly supports the democratic party here in the United States. He is a $2 million dollar backer of Hillary Clinton’s super PACs. He funds many very progressive programs throughout the world, including drug legalization, immigration policy reform and end-of-life care programs. (From Forbes)
A few decades ago, Soros stepped down from the day-to-day workings of Soros Fund Management. Being one of the wealthiest men in the world, he was able to focus on the causes that intrigued him rather than the mundane daily work of the company.
Another financial investment that he pours himself and his money into is the Open Society. The Open Society has reached over borders and cultural boundaries to bring scholarships to apartheid Africa, “illegal” Xerox copiers to Communism in the East Bloc, and education fees and opportunities to many in many varying ways. (Open Society Foundations)
George Soros has given back to the causes that are close to his heart. Soros survived the Nazi occupation of Hungary, became a railway porter, a waiter and later an extremely successful hedge fund manager. His roots in the survival of the Nazi’s were what led him to Open Society and helping the downtrodden of across the world.
Many times Soros refers to himself as a philanthropist. In regards to the Open Society Foundations, Soros was a substantial philanthropist, donating very large sums to the organization. His political activisim has increased in his later years. He stays very vested in political affairs, education, political freedom, human rights, among many other topics. His money goes where his interests are. Soros is a prime example of what you can do with $5.8 Billion!
