George Soros: Solving the EU Refugee Crisis

There currently is an epidemic ongoing in the EU system with the flood of asylum-seekers flooding in from the war-torn Middle East who look to escape from the violence. As it stands, the method with which the EU member states transport and accept these immigrants is highly ineffective and it has led to many coming up with alternative solutions to this problem. One of these individuals is George Soros.

George Soros is an extremely successful investor and business man, with his family owned company “Soros Fund Management” boasting upwards of $29 billion in assets. Though this wasn’t always the case, having been born in Hungary during a tumultuous and violent time, he fled to the UK and put himself through the London School of Economics by working on a railroad and as a waiter. This eventually propelled him into the finance scene and he worked for a merchant bank before finally moving to New York and getting started in Wall Street. Through constant perseverance and smart decisions, he amassed enough to start his own hedge fund in 1969 worth about $12 million. From that point on he has made a point of contributing to the community with his wealth, having given away more than $11 billion in his lifetime.

Based upon George Soros’s worldly experience and lifetime dealing with tough financial decisions, he has come up with an effective method of dealing with the asylum seeking issue within the EU with a number of key points. Basically, what he wants to happen would be a process of making things far more organized and efficient in regards to how refugees are processed and integrated. This is done through setting specific minimum amounts as to the number they would like to accept, in this case one million, and by providing a small yearly stipend of $16,800 for the first two years to get them started. Additionally, he would support far greater funding to the bordering countries who currently house these refugees to better allow for them to provide for this huge influx of people, which he would like to see rise from the current $1 billion to roughly $20 billion. It would strongly tie into the demand for the creation of a specific organization to deal with this refugee crisis, and having some sort of unified system would expedite the process massively. Finally, George Soros would like the EU to provide safer channels for the asylum-seekers to reach the European country of their choice, instead of the dangerous passages they currently are faced with and provide community programs to help them integrate into society through the usage of sponsors and government assistance while they get settled. The complete version of these points can be read in the original article he has published on Marketwatch.

While the current situation in the EU is a messy one, Soros provides a fairly concrete process with which to resolve and improve upon the current system, though it would likely take a number of difficult years to implement.

George Soros Prophesies Doom for Global Economies

George Soros is the chair of Soros Fund Management and the Open Society Foundations. Soros was born in Budapest in 1930, at the age of 17, George fled the Communist-dominated Hungary to England where he studied at the London School of Economics. George has risen the ranks to become one of America’s most influential people. This is due to his commitment to changing the world through his open society foundation which advocates for the idea of an open society which guarantees the rights of citizens and holds the government accountable at all levels. This idea was the brain child of Soros on, who sought to help communist countries depart from communism which is an unfair mode of government. This foundation has been banned in Russia and branded a threat to Russia’s social foundations.

George Soros while addressing an economic conference in the capital of Sri Lanka has warned that the global economies are headed for tough economic times. This comes after China, which is ranked the second largest economy in the world coming under fire in the recent past with the Yuan dropping its value in the global market.

Global markets are in trouble with investors opting out of investing their money in projects that would otherwise prove to be very bad for business. In an attempt to save the dropping value of the Yuan China has opted to change its preferred growth model. This comes after China has come to the realization that the current growth model does not foster economic growth and improvement.

China continues to struggle in making the inevitable switch that would see the country depart from investing and manufacture to consumption and service. This situation is worsened by the fact that the Yuan continues to drop its value in the new year. Global equities have recorded major losses, and the situation of the Yuan’s performance in Asia is getting worse. These are some of the reasons that George Soros quoted to justify his prediction that the global economy is about to hit an all-time low worse than the one experienced during the economic crunch.

2008 will go down in history as one of the worst economic times in America’s History after the great depression. Soros predicts that the looming global crisis spells greater problems than those experienced in the past with the Greece-born European debt contributing to the recession.

Soros is a respected authority in global economies after he successfully won a bet of $1billion after predicting that the UK would be forced to devalue the Euros currency in 1991. This places Soros in a pole position to predict the future of global economies based on the current trend.

China continues to struggle in making the preferred model of growth with the communist party pledging to increase the Yuan’s convertibility by 2020. Previous attempts by China to save the economy have failed terribly, and it remains to be seen if the Soros prediction will take effect.

Helane Morrison’s Struggle With the Corporate World

Though the reputation of the business world has been rather dubious for some time, it’s the first decade and a half of the 21st century that has brought with it a new wave of skepticism surrounding all it does.

After practice law for a private firm, Morrison went on to work the government. Working with the US Securities and Exchange’s San Francisco office, Morrison investigate instances of fraud in trading a securities sectors and exposing them in order to lead the offenders to a proper investigations. She did this in the defense of private individuals and financial communities that were the victims of practices from larger, more reckless corporate bodies that engage in business with little thought to the consequences of their actions. Morrison often acted as representation for the SEC before moving on to head enforcement of its rules. During her eight years with the SEC, Morrison went from District Administrator to Regional Director, stretching her enforcement jurisdiction beyond San Francisco throughout the American northwest.

Putting her time with the government a law firms behind her, Helane Morrison turned to the private sector once again.
