Wow it is amazing how many people on this board are filled with so much hate towards someone they seem to know nothing about. It is like a "HATE
SOROS" band wagon around here and most of you don't even have an educated position.
Broke the Bank of England???? sure, he is wise and made an excellent for-cast that cashed out huge, if the stirling had rose after he withdrew he
would have lost a lot of potential earnings, but he took the risk and made out good. This is capitalism right?
Supports China??? Here is what i heard him say:
"Today China has not only a more vigorous economy, but actually a better functioning government than the United States".
- George Soros.
Is he lying? Is he misinformed?? NO!!! unless you are completely delusional or totally naive then what he said was right on the mark.
He aslo pointed out:
"China has risen very rapidly by looking out for its own interests ... They have now got to accept responsibility for world order and the
interests of other people as well."
- George Soros
Since the US failed sooooo horribly at that he expects China to do better.
Now i am just pulling a lot of this stuff from Wiki which makes me think that most of you making anit-Soros comments are just cheering along with the
anti-Soros cheerleaders blindly.
He gave up Millions to stop W. Bush's re-election. I guess most of you liked bush and what he did for America??
he believes in a mixed economy, one with a strong central international government to correct for the excesses of self-interest.... is there something
wrong with that???? Oh ya i guess to selfish Emoaricans that a scared of not being respected as the greatest nation on earth this might seem
Another quote from Soros in wiki:
In Soros' view, the markets' moods – a "mood" of the markets being a prevailing bias or optimism/pessimism with which the markets look at
reality – "actually can reinforce themselves so that there are these initially self-reinforcing but eventually unsustainable and self-defeating
boom/bust sequences or bubbles"
wow what an idiot huh
Now I'm sure that someone has already hit the quote button under this post without getting this far just to point this out: 'SOROS HELPED ROUND UP
How old was he when that was happening? 13-14 maybe 15. Do you think maybe he could have been an impressionable teenager still going through
puberty? I commend him for being honest about how he felt at the time. If all these adults that were his senior are doing these things and it seemed
normal to them, how would Soros at that age be able for pick apart the right and wrong of the situation. I personally think it takes a worse person
to hold someone of that age personally responsible for the actions of NAZI's than it does to go through that as an sprouting young lad. I say anyone
that would label him for that would be considered cheap and petty.
I say his views on antisemitism are spot on. Again from Wiki:
There is a resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe. The policies of the Bush administration and the Sharon administration contribute to that. It's
not specifically anti-Semitism, but it does manifest itself in anti-Semitism as well. I'm critical of those policies... If we change that direction,
then anti-Semitism also will diminish. I can't see how one could confront it directly... I'm also very concerned about my own role because the new
anti-Semitism holds that the Jews rule the world... As an unintended consequence of my actions... I also contribute to that image.
as you get older you get wiser:
I do not subscribe to the myths propagated by enemies of Israel and I am not blaming Jews for anti-Semitism. Anti-Semitism predates the birth of
Israel. Neither Israel's policies nor the critics of those policies should be held responsible for anti-Semitism. At the same time, I do believe that
attitudes toward Israel are influenced by Israel's policies, and attitudes toward the Jewish community are influenced by the pro-Israel lobby's
success in suppressing divergent views.
- George Soros
So what is George Soros other than a wise old man that wants to see the world progress into a wiser, more stable society with an economy that is kept
from the self interests of the few.
How many Billions have any of you given to good causes??? 7 Billion??? no not even Bill and Warren, they did more but it sounds more like a tax haven
than a good cause.
