As one of the thirty richest men in the world, financier-philanthropist George Soros is a person whose words deserve to be listened to when it comes to predictions about the economy. Since 1970 the Soros Fund Management has been one of the world’s most successful hedge funds. Soros’ Open Society Foundation on marketrealist.com has given away some $11 billion dollars in philanthropic grants over the past 23 years. George Soros knows the global market.
Hence it is all the more disturbing that Soros has been drawing parallels between the Asian market’s current situation and the state that the US economy was in just before the 2008 recession. Back in September 2015, George Soros drew attention to the European Union’s problems with Greek debt, likening it to the run-up to 2008. In January of this year, Bloomberg.com reported that George Soros was warning of similar trends visible in Asia, with China devaluing its currency in the face of the falling value of the yuan and having to intervene in market trading to prevent a catastrophe. In a recent article, Bloomberg reports that Soros has repeated his warnings, this time targeting the issue of China’s current debt.

Soros’ warnings about China’ situation follow news that the Chinese government had created $362 billion (2.34 trillion yuan) in new credit during March, far more than the predicted 1.4 trillion yuan. Clearly the Chinese government is eager to spur on economic growth by funding new enterprises rather than dealing with existing debt. But is this really what’s happening? Soros says that, in fact, the new money is just helping bad debt stay afloat and shoring up existing businesses that are already running at a loss. It is precisely this state that is reminiscent of the situation in the United States in the months prior the financial crisis of 2008: loads of bad debt and little hope of legitimate recovery and genuine growth.
Chinese state media haven’t been slow to reject Soros’ warnings. They point to the surge in the price of new homes in China, with such growth spurred on by the new available credit. But this is precisely what makes Soros nervous: the banking system in China has more loans than deposits, forcing banks to loan to each other. With the Chinese financial quarter itself feeling unstable, others have begun to grow insecure. Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s, for example, have both cut China’s credit rating since March. Soros also points to capital outflows from China. As the government’s anti-corruption campaign shows no sign of slowing down, wealthy Chinese individuals have sought to diversify their holdings and to get their money out of the country to some safer haven.
As the Chinese government props up its own economy by increasing state involvement, the global economic forecasters are not wildly confident in the situation. It may not be a bad idea to listen in this case to George Soros’ predictions.

From economic boom to rolling black-outs this is precisely the problem confronting Venezuela today.Extended drought conditions have crippled the country’s hydroelectric systems. While some place the blame on this as the cause of the nation’s power outage woes, the economic growth during the early part of the millennium might be playing just as large a role according to expert Jose Manuel Gozalez.
While current poverty levels in Venezuela are estimated to be near 80% it was not that long ago that the country was in the midst of an economic boom. Fueled by record high oil prices between 1998 and 2013 Venezuela reduced their poverty by 20%, and sported one of the fastest reduction rates in the world. Riding this oil boom the nation’s economy expanded at an amazing speed.
This economic surge predicted by Manuel Gonzalez allowed people to purchase on a level that they never had before. From homes to hair dryers, to washing machines Venezuelans embraced their new found purchasing power, and the nation’s electrical needs exploded.Unfortunately a drought and a crash in oil prices were right around the corner.
Low export prices have limited the amount that the government can do to mitigate the damage. The drought has now reduced water levels in the nation’s largest hydroelectric plant to nearly critical levels. This, coupled with the increased demand from its previous economic success, has left the Venezuelan power grid in a perilous position.

Kyle Bass is one of those hedge fund investors that Bernie Sanders would like to stop. It’s not that Bass is a despicable guy, but his method of making money has been the topic of conversation for several years. Bass was a small-time hedge fund manager back in 2006. His company, Hayman Capital, didn’t have very many assets under management back then, but Bass still had his Wall Street connections from his years of being a Bear Stearns executive. In 2006, Bass predicted that Bear Stearns subprime mortgage bonds were worthless, and he leaked that information to a CNN reporter. Bass also bet that those subprime mortgage bonds that were commonplace on Wall Street at that time were going to implode. Bass was right. He made millions on that bet, and he became an overnight rock star investor.
Hayman Capital has grown over the last seven years. Hayman Capital has billions of assets under management, and Bass is constantly interviewed by investment publications that want to get the inside scoop on the next best investment. In 2015, Bass predicted that the euro was going to depreciate against the dollar, and he made a ton of money on that bet. In 2016, Bass decided that China’s currency, the yuan, is overvalued, and Bass has moved most of Hayman Capital’s to a short position against the yuan. If he’s right, he will make billions on that risky wager. The Chinese government has told Bass and other hedge fund investors not to bet against them because the investors will lose.
But Bass believes China is in trouble. Mr. Bass thinks the Chinese banks are carrying too much debt, and the government cannot keeping spending capital reserves to keep the banks and the Chinese stock market solvent. Chinese capital reserves are dwindling, and Bass believes all economic hell is going to break loose over the next 18 months in China. Bass told a Fox Business reporter the U.S. could fall into a recession because of China in 2016.
Bass has been wrong before. He tried to bet against the Japanese banks and lost. Bass also tried to keep the price of General Motors stock from falling when the airbag and power steering issues were discovered. Bass blames the victims rather than GM for the deadly debacle. Bass also didn’t make friends when he sided with the former president of Argentina when that country defaulted on billions of dollars in bonds. Bass has also been in the news for a deal he made with the wife of the slain marine that Hollywood called the “American Sniper.” Read more on Kyle Bass through UsefulStooges’ brillian expose on his shady past: http://usefulstooges.com/2015/08/24/kyle-bass-the-frantic-investments-of-a-desperate-gambler/

This is a combination of his love for music and his love for the family catapulted his urge to kick-start his charity organization. The main role of this organization is to raise funds to drive the mentioned organization but as well to create awareness and instill the knowledge of the facts behind autism like its symptoms and how to detect it at an earlier stage. It as well gives them the idea of how their contribution is of much help to those who have been culprits. This concert is already capturing a lot of fans around the world.
Important factors about Sanjay Shah
We would seek to get to know the factors about Sanjay that could have given him the urge to come up with such an organization. He is known to be quite an active individual even during his time in the university and, however, much this could be a continuation of his norm. The fact that his youngest son got autism in 2014 could have been an immense pushing force behind the successful project.
Someone could confuse and believe that this is the only organization that Sanjay has ever come up with. It is thus important to point out that he as well came up with an organization called solo capital. This was an international boutique that deals with international professional sports and financial consultation.

When a person thinks about the business world, the first words that come to their minds are usually not integrity or ethical. In fact, the business world and individuals who operate within that sphere are usually thought of as devious, cutthroat, and always looking for a competitive edge. In the world of business, honestly and integrity are not always seen in a positive light. For this reason, anyone who has the determination and the courage to follow the rules and play the game the way that it is supposed to be played is deserving of commendation. It takes a new individual with a strong sense of character to not be pulled into unethical practices. It takes an even stronger individual to have the courage to stand up to police and others who have allowed themselves to become enticed into committing the wrong business practices.
Helane Morrison has proven time and time again that she is that type of person. The integrity that she is integrity that she learned when she studied to become a journalist. It is the same integrity that served her well in her years of government service. Day after day, month after month, year after year, Helane Morrison has clearly proven that she has what it takes to stand up to corruption and protect the institutions and the people that are negatively affected by corruption.
Helane Morrison is neither enticed by power, nor is she afraid to tell truth to power. Over the years, she has bravely stood up to corrupt brokers and those who would misuse national and international financial institutions for their own gain. She is a determined woman who has shattered the glass ceiling. Her influence and power have left a positive mark on financial institutions for more than three decades. And there is no sign that she is slowing down.
For me and many others, the financial collapse that started in late 2007 and early 2008 came as a surprise. It pulled back the curtain on some of the corrupt practices that allowed a small group to get rich while putting the investments and life savings of the masses at risk. Helen Morrison has been a champion in seeing to it that the individuals involved in this financial meltdown and others are brought to justice and held accountable for their actions.
