George Soros was originally born in Hungary and migrated to the USA seek greener pastures. As a young man he had grandiose dreams to make it big. He realized as while still young that money made the world go round and he sought to make as much of it as possible. This attitude is what has worked for him so well. George Soros New York hedge fund manager is arguably one of the most politically powerful individuals on earth. He has extensively used his resources to shape the political landscapes of several countries including the United States. He has managed to topple some dictatorial regimes that have continually oppressed its citizenry. He is currently known to affect American politics in more profound ways than any living person.

Soros influence can be tied to his personal fortune amounting to $13 and another $25 in Investment in assets. His firm Soros Fund Management is one of the most successful hedge funds in Wall Street. In his book The Alchemy of Finance, Soros views himself as a self important personality by even comparing himself to renowned Economist John Maynard keynes. Despite his high regard for himself, Soros is a soft man at heart. He is considered one of the most philanthropic persons in the country. Through his Open Society Foundations, he has provided funding to non-profit and human rights organizations to further his cause for a democratic and socially equal society. The Open Society Foundations are set up in several countries around the world and are not limited to the United States.

Soros has had critical reviews of oppressive regimes and most accurately George bush. He was against Bush’s administration on foreign policy. The 9/11 attacks was a confirmation by Soros of the deteriorating foreign policy and soros called out the president. Soros claimed that Bush was the very definition of all that was evil and he didn’t have the ideals of democracy and human rights at heart. He sensationally claimed that terrorism was at large a consequence of economic sabotage and exploitation of poor countries by wealthier counterparts. Soros aim was to improve the social conditions of people around the world and push governments redistribute wealth. He called on rich countries to provide international assistance to the less developed ones. This was in line with his agenda for the world.
