George Soros Takes On The Role Of Civil Rights Activist

Depending on your position on the political spectrum the name George Soros will bring about a series of very different reactions to his name; for financial experts Soros is perhaps the most successful hedge fund manager of all time seeing record-breaking growth across a number of decades, but for others he is seen as the top donor to Democratic and liberal causes in the world. Soros himself has developed his own network of charitable groups, the Open Society Foundations that have recently been identified as a key player in the Ferguson protests of the Summer of 2014. Although he may not have personally set foot on the streets of Ferguson, George Soros has been at the heart of the work completed by a number of groups back through Open Society Foundations funding in Ferguson, Missouri. Visit Project Syndicate to learn more about George.

Ferguson became a flashpoint for local community leaders and activists when African American Michael Brown was shot by a law enforcement officer despite not being involved in a crime. Initially, the shooting of Michael Brown sparked a few localized protests before a number of major civil rights groups seized upon the event and turned it into an international cause celebre. The result of George Soros backed groups, such as the Drug Policy Alliance and the Advancement Project, arriving in Ferguson was a more organized series of protests taking place under the glare of international new media organizations publicizing the efforts of activists to draw attention to institutional racism; in total, it is reported by The Washington Times that around $33 million in funding is provided annually by the George Soros-funded Open Society Foundations to groups assisting in the protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

George Soros has been looking to change the way the world works together since he left his home nation of Hungary as a 17-year-old refugee in 1947. Now in his 80’s, George Soros has continued to look to educate the people of the world about democracy and freedom, a cause Soros believes his own personal success as a hedge fund manager has afforded him. Although he has always been known in financial circles as a genius hedge fund manager the U.S. citizen became a globally recognized name when he took on a major role in the 1992 devaluation of the British currency on a day that became known as “Black Wednesday”; Soros is estimated to have made over $1 billion in a single day through the devaluation of the British Pound and sealed his reputation as the world’s top investment specialist. In 2017, George Soros remains an active trader and supporter of many different liberal causes, which Politico reports include advancing the cause of equal rights for women through his support of U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Soros Fund Management Chief Investment Officer Dawn Fitzpatrick.

Within the last five years, the public’s opinion on this ski resort has made a 180 degree recovery.

In recent news, Andy Wirth, the innovative businessman, agreed to sit down with the host of the KCRW radio station in order to discuss his future plans for the resort even with the effects of the drought looming over the business.

Despite the large ski and resort business that Mr. Wirth runs that relies heavily on the annual rainfall, Mr. Wirth calmly stated that he has no worried thought for the future of his resort.

In fact, Andy Wirth even stated that he expects that his resort will come out on top and bring in more revenue and customers than ever before.

This shocking statement is due to the momentum that Andy Wirth and his ski resort have been gaining over the years. Mr. Wirth has truly accomplished the impossible by improving a 70 year old ski resort that was once thought to be lost and faltering.

With Andy Wirth triumphant accomplishment, it is believed by the community that he can handle any challenge. Despite a ski resort’s reliance on the annual rainfall, Andy Wirth now uses this as an opportunity to think outside the box.

New investments have already been a result of thinking outside the box as he plans to invest in the snow making business.
