One of the most influential businessman and philanthropist George Soros is on a mission to promote democratic communities in many countries worldwide. His sustained interest in globalization, politics, economics, and altruism is fueled by his former childhood memories that involved strategically surviving the Nazi invasion during World War II as well as escaping a communist dominated society in 1947. His early challenging and inspiring experiences supported his desire to attend the London School of Economics during which he obtained the necessary knowledge to advocate for basic human rights. Many years after he completed his college studies, he launched Soros Fund Managers and Open Society Foundations. As the founder of two distinct yet interchangeable entities, Soros strongly believes that his profound success in the financial markets has empowered him to resolve complex controversial issues. Soros’s stance on a variety of economic and investing matters is quickly gaining much attention from different regions across the globe. Although the world encompasses many prominent financiers and benefactors, his acclaimed success is influenced by his impressive desire to develop democratic societies whose administration considers the needs of their citizens. Notably, he has written many best-selling books concerning his widely followed political beliefs such as The Age of Fallibility, The Bubble of American Supremacy, Opening the Soviet System, George Soros on Globalization, The Crash of 2008 and What it Means, and The Tragedy of the European Union. He has also published noteworthy essays expressing his viewpoints including “The Crisis & What to do About it,” Remarks Delivered at the Global Economic Symposium,” How to Stop a Second Great Depression,” “How Germany Can Avoid a Two-Speed Europe,” and “Do Not Ignore the Need for Financial Reform.” His many award-winning and popular resources illustrate his profound commitment to tolerant communities where the ideas and rights of the citizens are respected and honored. Since 1979, Soros has actively participated in many admirable community initiatives in various countries around the world. One of his first charitable acts involved assisting African students with their college expenses at Cape Town University. He continued his educational engagement by founding Central European University, which is a private Hungary-based institution that offers degrees in the humanities, business management, mathematics, law, public policy, and environmental sciences. Perhaps his most renowned philanthropic pursuit was the creation of the Open Society Foundation. With operations in over 100 countries, this leading organization strives to encourage democratic societies that focus on human rights. In addition to overseeing Open Society Foundation, Soros often supports many independent organizations including the International Crisis Group, the Institute for New Economic Thinking, the European Council, and the Global Witness. Alongside his admirable volunteer endeavors, Soros is the chairman of Soros Fund Management.
