The Global Economy Is Tethering On The Edge Of Disaster According To Billionaire George Soros

There’s a lot of trouble in paradise. Brazil is floating in debt. The Brazilian government is a mess, and the economy is contracting by a whopping 3.5 percent. The once great emerging market isn’t emerging anymore. It is sinking, and the King of Latin America is not alone, according to George Soros. Soros reiterated his 2011 prediction to a forum in Sri Lanka recently. That prediction is, the world is headed for another 2008 type downturn, and it may be worse than he expects, according to Bloomberg.com. 




George Soros is a man that wears a lot of different hats. He is the chairman of the Soros Fund Management, a humanitarian that has built foundations all over the world, and a philosopher who earned his degree from the London School of Economics in the 1950s. Soros came to the United States in 1956, and he learned the ins and outs of hedge fund investing. In 1992, Soros decided to short-sell the pound sterling on opensocietyfoundations.org. He bet the British government would have to devalue the pound against other currencies, and he won that bet. He earned the title “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England” from that bet and a cool $1.2 billion. From then on, it was game on for Soros. Today, Soros is rumored to be worth more than $23 billion.




The George Soros prediction has been talked about in economic circles for years, but the reality of his prediction came to light in 2015. China’s massive economic engine started to sputter more than ever due to the lack of orders that kept their giant manufacturing system oiled. The Chinese yuan lost more than 30 percent of its value on the foreign currency exchange, and the Chinese stock exchange almost went belly up. It would have if not for the billions of capital reserve dollars the Chinese pumped into it to keep it on life support.




So Soros began to turn up the heat on his prediction that the world was in for another economic beating, and he used the dysfunctional European Union as another reason why an economic doomsday is fast approaching. When the European Union’s debt and inability to control its members is added to the Chinese meltdown that continues to eat away at emerging markets like South Africa, Brazil and other Asian countries the Soros handwriting is easier to read for non-economic majors.




Mr. Soros believes 2016 is the year that the world is going to realize that the global market is sinking in its own overvalued excrement. The signs are obvious according to Soros. They are so obvious that Soros is betting against the Chinese. His hedge fund is shorting the Chinese yuan, and investors like Soros are patiently waiting for the other worn out Chinese economic slipper to drop. 



Kate Hudson Opens Up to Elle about Fabletics

Kate Hudson is a champion of those women that have longed for fitness clothing that they can work out in and look good. The commercials are funny, and Kate Hudson has shown that she truly understands the needs of women that are looking for some great workout clothing. This clothing line has become what she is good at, and Hudson opens up in Elle magazine about all that she loves in the Fabletics brand she created.

Hudson has worked long and hard, and she has seen some really great improvements in the way that she does business. As she transitioned from actress to businesswoman it was clear to see that she has a mind frame to become a dominant player in the industry. She did not have any interest in sitting on the sidelines. To the contrary, she was much more interested in building the type of clothing empire where she played an active role in the clothing line. That is why she won the Entrepreneur of the Year Award in London in 2015. That is why she is one of the clothing models on the website. She didn’t want to just be a name that was attached to Fabletics. She wanted to embody the brand as she helped mold and shape this clothing company.

In Elle magazine Hudson speaks on her eating habits and her workout routine. She talks about how she grew up with working out as part of her upbringing. On the west coast in California this was just a regular habit because there are so many beaches and so many opportunities to hop into a bikini. Women want to look good in swimwear when they are out in the beach, but they also want to look good while they are getting in shape to get that beach body. That is where Hudson and her co-founders saw the golden opportunity to move into a market that had been untapped.

The brand has emerged as something that brings the concept of gym wear in a whole new form. People are actually impressed with this Fabletics line. There is also a FL2 line that Kate Hudson is connected to for men’s workout gear. Her brother Oliver is helping her with this brand. Kate has even placed some her own picks on the website. This has allowed her to really get involved in the website and promote the Fabletics brand.

White Shark Media Complaints – The One Thing Every Digital Marketing Agency Must Get Right

 

White Shark Media is a digital marketing agency that was founded in 2011. Over the last 5 years they have quickly grown into one of the top agencies in the digital marketing industry.

While things are smooth sailing now, it wasn’t always that way. In the beginning, White Shark Media received quite a few reviews as customers were unhappy with certain aspects of the service.

One complaint they heard over and over again is how ineffective their communication with clients was.

This really hit home as it showed them just how much work they needed to do. Instead of being offended by complaints, White Shark Media chose to use those complaints as a way to move the company forward.

If you run a digital marketing agency of any kind, communication with clients is the one thing you absolutely must get right. If communication isn’t up to par, clients will slowly but surely start to take their business elsewhere.

At White Shark Media clients would constantly complain about not being able to easily get in touch with their contact person. This of course was frustrating and needed to be fixed immediately.

To deal with this issue White Shark Media implemented two new things:

1) Monthly Status Calls

To make it easier for clients to review their monthly results, White Shark Media now offers monthly status calls via GoToMeeting.

This will happen every month or when the client requests it.

Using the “share a screen” feature in GoToMeeting, the SEM strategist is able to share the screen with the client so they can go over the reports together.

This makes it easy for the client to see how well their campaign is performing. It also makes it easy for them to ask any questions they may have.

This one simple change has proven to be highly effective and has been praised by clients.

1) Direct Extensions

The second change made was to install new phone systems with direct extensions. Now, instead of having to go through a receptionist, clients can call their strategist directly.

As soon as a new client signs up they are immediately sent an email with all needed contact information. This one simple move has allowed for seamless communication between the client and the strategist.

Now that White Shark Media has their communication issues under control, the company has continued to grow year after year, gets good reviews and are now considered one of the top digital marketing agencies in the world.

SANJAY SHAH AND HIS LEADERSHIP IN SOLO CAPITAL

Solo capital is a UK based financial investment company. This company specializes in proprietary trading, consulting and sports investment. The company was incorporated in the year 2011 and is also known as Solo Capital UK. Since its incorporation, the company has made a big improvement and is now considered a big finance investment business. In the year ending 2015, Solo Capital was estimated to worth 16 million Euros. Its assets amounted 67 million Euros and the cash flow recorded by the company that year was 30 million Euros. The company works as Solo Capital Partners. The partnering is what has given the company the observable success. The other important factors in Solo Capital Investment Company are the strong leadership. The leader of this partnership, Sanjay Shah has been in the financial investment industry for a considerable amount of time thus having all the skills needed for a successful endeavor.
Solo Capital Partners is controlled by Solo Group a holding which is headed by Shah. He is the CEO and at the same time, the owner of AESA company which is in full ownership of Solo Group Holdings. Shah is also the owner of the British Virgin Islands and The Cayman Islands which are all investment finance companies. He took over Old Park in 2014. This is another financial institution which only operates in invitation-only stock broking focusing on natural resources. Shah had a net worth of $280 by the beginning of 2016 whereby he resorted to retire from leading the companies.
Global Citizen magazine interviewed Shah and found out that financial investment was not his intended career. He had opted to be a doctor and went to college to study medicine. The financial investment industry had been so far from his mind then. After finishing medicine, Shah found out that he could be a doctor. He then took his attentions out of medicine and sought employment in financial institutions. He worked in this industry as an employee in many banks until 2009. This was the year when the economic crisis was experienced worldwide. This economic crisis affected the companies that he was working for which saw him made redundant. He, therefore, found unnecessary to look for another job and went on to manage his company. Solo Capital UK was then born and from that time, it started building its fortune to what is seen at the moment.
Shah is also the founder of Autism Rocks. This is an organization that runs concerts with the core intention of raising funds and awareness on autism. Shah had been giving out donations in India to help children but has not thought of running something like a domain to create awareness on autism. It was his son’s diagnosis that brought the idea to his head.

The statue, which is being referred to as the Lone Sailor Statue, will be erected near Pearl Harbor.

The vast majority of the funds for the statue are being donated from the U.S. Money Reserve.

The statue was created by Stanley Biefield, who is noted as the official designer and sculptor. It will stand about 7 feet tall and weigh over 1,000 pounds. The base of the statue will also include some steel from the USS Arizona.

Is Charles Koch Feeling the Bern?

One half of the well-known Koch brothers caused a stir in the political world recently. A published Washington Post article reveals some of Charles Koch’s viewpoints are not so different from Democratic Presidential nominee Bernie Sanders.

Much to the surprise of Bernie Sanders supporters and many others, Charles Koch has gone on to say he shares the sentiment the Presidential hopeful has concerning wealth inequality. The article quoted Koch, indicating the chief executive of Koch Industries, also believes that today’s economy primarily serves to help those already high on the financial food chain. Koch goes on to say that the financial system’s checks and balances only serves to keep a two tiers of living in place, essentially the haves and the have-nots.
There is a stir on Charles Koch’s sentiments on Bernie Sander’s political stance on inequality. But Koch goes on to discuss that there is still quite a bit that he disagrees with concerning Sander’s and his presidential campaign. Koch makes it clear that he will not be contributing funds to the nominee’s campaign. Still, the notion that someone like Charles Koch can agree with Sanders on the idea of economic inequality is still something to take notice.
Charles Koch was born in Witchita Kansas in 1935, a place he still resides. A descendent of Dutch immigrants, Koch attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he received two Masters Degrees in Science. In the early 1960’s Koch worked on the board of Rock Island Oil and Refining Company, later becoming president and renaming the company with his familial last name. To this day Koch Industries has grown exponentially, nearly generating 100 billion dollars in revenue.
While normally the stereotypical boogeyman of many a political stand point, it would seem rare for a big business figure to agree with a grass roots campaign like the Bernie Sanders movement. But such is the case as the influential Charles Koch has agreed with the philosophy Sanders has on income inequality. While Koch disagrees on several other aspects of Sanders standpoints both men share the belief that current economic system is rigged to favor the privileged over others less fortunate.

George Soros: In Philanthropy and Financial Marketing

Forbes billionaire George Soros, the founder and the chairman of Open Society is popular for his ideas on philanthropy. The open society which he chairs consists of a network of partners, foundations and projects in over 100 nations. He is in supports of a system where the society is open. In other words, he believes in government accountability, respect for people’s rights and the absence of a monopoly in the society or economy. Apparently, his beliefs and ideologies differentiate Open Society Foundations from any private philanthropic foundations and efforts. George Soros started his philanthropy by providing scholarships in 1979. He provided the help during apartheid and specifically to black South Africans. Later, in the 1980s, he aided in undermining communism in the Eastern Bloc. George Soros achieved this by the offering support for the presence of cultural exchanges in the West. Evidently, he was determined to make changes in the society. Besides, he was the person behind the creation of Central European University For the promotion of Critical Thinking. Notably, he had the philanthropy acts and foundations extended to Asia, Africa and the US. Foundations had lawyers who represented unlawfully held individuals. Additionally, the foundations also provided funds and fees for young promising youths, especially from marginalized groups. Even more, George Soros aided in the establishment of a system that brought transparency and accountability in resources extraction and making payoffs.
George Soros was successful in financial marketing. Consequently, he admits that it helped in giving him a great and satisfactory degree of independence. He says that the independence helps him in achieving and doing things others find hard or impossible. Still, he can take a stand even when issues at hand are controversial. George Soros, for example, made a donation of $ 8m dollars to PAC showing support for Hillary Clinton.

According to George Soros’s prediction, the economy is headed the situation nations faced in 2008. Different countries are in the struggle of finding new growth models due to the devaluation of their currency, for example, China. The situation is not different in states like New York. In addition, the global currency commodities and stock markets are under siege. Notably, the shift of China’s economy towards consumption and away from manufacturing and investment will increase the burden. The same nation, according to George Soros has issues with adjusting. Also, George Soros indicates that more nations have more serious debts than there were in 2008. Apparently, the financial markets today are in crisis as they were in 2008. Also, the vitality measures are on the increase this year. Therefore, this calls for strategic financial measures and strategies. If this is the case, the state of the economy worldwide will be better. Consequently, crises will be reduced.
