George Soros is a Hungarian Born New York Businessman. He is ranked among the top five wealthiest people on the globe. Soros is of Jewish descent, but he spent part of his childhood in Hungary before escaping to the UK when he was a teenager. He had to leave the country because of the Holocaust.

George Soros made his fortune after he graduated from the London School of Economics. He is famous because he ‘broke’ the bank in the now infamous Black Wednesday short sale of 1993. In one single day, Soros was able to make a deal worth $1 billion by changing the Sterling Pound for US dollars. After the sale, he moved to the US, but he continued investing in the stock market. One of the things that Soros believes in is that the society will be at ease when everyone realizes that it is impossible to be perfect in the human condition and that there is no shame in being wrong. He, however, believes in doing his best to rectify what he thinks is going wrong in society.
One of the latest social activism protests that he has supported was the protests in Fergusson. The whole issue started as a Facebook Hashtag. The contentious issue was the apparent senseless killing of black people by the policemen. People started chanting the black lives matter song, and soon it was an entire movement. Busloads of protestors were ferried to Fergusson, and for three days, they made sure that their message was heard by the local and the international media and George Soros’s lacrosse camp.
George Soros is also well invested in the politics of the country. For instance, when he disagreed with the Iraq war which was started by President Bush in 2001, he supported John Kerry to run against him. After Kerry’s Loss, George Dialed back a little on politics, but he was back to support Barrack Obama. In the just-concluded presidential election, Soros openly supported Clinton and contributed millions to her campaign. He was even supposed to attend the Democratic Convention where Clinton was named the flag bearer. He, however, pulled out the last minute because he had to oversee his investments in Europe and learn more about George Soros.
