George Soros is a Leading Philanthropic Investor in The World who Champions Democracy

As the world’s leading philanthropists, today George Soros has donated more than 12 billion dollars to different humanitarian causes. The George Soros Fund has given support to both organizations and private individuals from all corners of the world who champion causes for democratic principles of governing, accountability in government, justice and freedom of expression, and overall transparency. The generous giving does not isolate anyone deprived or someone who is discriminated, but it focuses on helping individuals and people who have been pushed to the outer edges of mainstream involvement in societal activities like LGBTI PEOPLE, sex workers, drug users.

George Soros’ background was full of such mistreatment. He was born in 1930 in Hungary where he spent most of his childhood during the Nazi occupation, but instead of succumbing to the forces of evil, they resisted by fighting back or migrating. He left Budapest for London in 1947 and by doing odd part-time jobs like being a railway porter or a nightclub waiter; he paid for his tuition fee at the London School of Economics. He later moved to the US where he entered the investments and finance industry from where he was able to build a big fortune. Soros became a hedge fund trade, and by 1970 he established his hedge fund known as Soros Management Fund. Visit projectsyndicate.com to know more about George.

The fortune George Soros accumulated made him one of the leading investors in America, and it motivated him to build the Open Society Foundations which is a massive network of humanitarian projects, partners, and foundations operating in over 100 countries. The core belief of the societies is that no society can flourish without respect for individual rights, freedom of expression, and democratic governance. His Philanthropic undertakings started in 1979 when he gave black students from Apartheid South Africa scholarships. Other activities he engaged in included promotion of exchange of ideas openly in the Eastern Bloc communist countries. In the intellectual circles, he elevated critical thinking by establishing the Central European University after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Some of the foundations he supports promote cultural exchanges between the West and Eastern Europe. As of 2012 George Soros, he had given out as much as $7 billion to different charities via the Open Societies Foundations.

What influenced his way of thinking was the study of Karl Popper’s philosophy through the work known as “The Open Society and Its Enemies,” which is a critical exploration of the impacts of totalitarianism. The main thought espoused in the book is that no political ideology masters the truth, and societies can develop only if they operate openly and freely. From a humble origin, Soros worked for a few years and founded the Soros Fund which was later renamed the Quantum Fund. It became the Quantum Fund Endowment with an asset base of $12 million. At 85 years of age by 2015, George Soros was regarded as one of the richest people in the world at position 21. Learn more on Discover the Networks about George Soros.

Purchasing a pre-owned BMW allows you to worry less about the vehicle’s deprecation, which is the eventual loss of its value after a new purchase. Because the car was previously owned, you are reaping the benefits because you aren’t suffering long term loss in value! The bottom line is a pre-owned BMW helps you save money. Because you aren’t purchasing a brand new vehicle straight from the factory, the final price will be considerably lower.
Here at Beverly Hills Auto Group we offer the best values for pre-owned luxury cars such as used BMWs. We are confident that the luxury cars we offer will pass mechanical and safety inspections. Come find your dream car at 61-07 Northern Blvd. Woodside, NY 11377.
