Learning to be a leader in activism was something I remember being popular at my college back in ’90. Hyper liberal arts colleges are known for that. “Don’t just talk about it, do it” type things.
We weren’t the first but it’s spread even to high schools and below, something similar to the south american “activist” social work that the current Pope was involved in once.
i’d rather learn his investment philosophies rather than his investment portfolio.
I’m a fan of activism, so if Soros is too, I think that’s great Smart investment choice too: slight instabilities in the market are where investment opportunities happen.
Yeah I’ve seen this interview. Sounds like him. He’s amoral – says so himself. If nothing else though David, “know thy enemy”. He’s not my enemy though; he’s a powerful guy who makes powerful investments. His investment philosophies are well known and used by many. Even if there was no Soros anymore, there’s millions that use his same investing strategies. Any kind of contrarian investing likely has its source in Soros as he’s never been shy about his methods: he knows what he’s doing more than most. But I wouldn’t use his advice for amoral reasons. Those moral charts have me as “neutral good”.
I don’t know tbh. I’m not attempting to justify his investment decisions: he treats people’s governments and lives as investment vehicles and it’s evil.
But he’s right that the markets are not and have never been rational, despite what economics says. He’s also said numerous times that countries should make laws against people like him. He knows he’s evil.
But _because_ he’s so influential (a one page article he wrote so scared investors that their collective decision to follow what Soros says crashed the British banks in the early 90s), it’s important to know how someone like that makes their decisions.
