I have always admired the one who works from the bottom to the top. The reason for this is because there was so much that could have stopped them. There was so much in their way. Those who came from nothing had to fight, scrape, climb, and defeat every obstacle that was in their way. George Soros is a great businessman that I look up to.No silver platter was handed to George Soros. Whatever that man has, he has worked for. George Soros, according to Forbes.com and Politico.com, was born in Hungary. However, according to both sites, he would not live there forever. He came to the United Kingdom where he studied finances in the London School of Economics.While attending school Soros had to find a way to pay for his education. George Soros became a waiter and felt no shame in it.
He knew he had to be a working man if he wanted to make it to the top. So he served those who would later look up to him.He went on to always be in the employ of a railroad, where he worked as a porter.The wisdom of this professors did George Soros much good since he would leave London for New York and open up the hedge fund, Quantum Funds. From there he would begin making money on the currency exchange and build his net worth all the way up $25 billion. Soros loved to work with money, but he never really wanted to keep money. He believed the old adage, “Money is like fertilizer, it is meant to be spread so that other things may grow.”Soros has always been an advocate for leftist ideas. This is probably because he has been around the world and does not see things as a nationalist American.
He sees leftism as the world’s saving grace, so he has done all he can to make it a reality.He has financially backed politicians such as John Kerry in 2004, Barrack Obama in 2008, and Hillary Clinton in 2016. It was his hope that by doing so he would create an avalanche of donors for the Democratic Party, or so Politico.com says.Soros believes in the liberal ideas of racial equality, gay and lesbian rights, financial redistribution, higher education, and religious tolerance. He believes that all should be on the same level playing field. According to Politico.com, one of the things Soros is most passionate about is making sure rich people do not have as much control over politics. He has seen what absolute power has done in Communist countries and he knows that in the end, only a select group of people benefit from that.
