How the Man That Is Constantly Changing The World Affected The 2016 Elections

The American elections of 2016 were an interesting case of study. Both sides accounted for big funding supporters, but no one donated as much money as the billionaire George Soros did for the campaign of Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump. A front of $25 million cash at the beginning of the elections might not be that much for one of the richest people in the world, according to the Forbes list, but it’s definitely a huge deal for an electoral campaign. Without his assistance, Hillary would not have come this far in the likings of the American community.

Being born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1930, George Soros is one of the most influential men in not only the United States but in many countries. There is a hand of Soros in many elections across countries around the globe, as he is an active political investor.

When Hillary Clinton saw that she would have the monetary support of this billionaire, things started looking much brighter for the candidate and her allies. Soros had the potential to catalyze any other donator from the other side of the electoral fight.

George Soros had already participated as an active financial donor in the history of the American politics. The last time he was that invested in changing the course of a political dispute was in 2004 when he tried to defeat George W. Bush from becoming the next U.S. President.

Why does a man as rich as George Soros care so much about the course of the American elections?

Soros is not only a businessman that was very successful, but he is also a philanthropist of sorts that aids in many non-profitable causes to help the world become a better place. He knows he has the power to change the course of big events because he has the money to help to do so. In an interview in 1993, Soros admitted that he sees himself as “some kind of god, the creator of everything,” only strengthening this belief.

George Soros began doing philanthropic work by creating his first Open Society Foundation, which would be joined by much more later on. He founded it in Hungary, where he was born. These foundations have spread to more than 70 countries worldwide since that time, and George Soros has become one of the humans who invested the most money in building better democracies. George Soros published a book titled Open Society: Reforming Global, talking about these foundations, also called “OSF” or Open Society Institutes. He stated that these foundations are part of a bigger desire of his to spread freedom of speech, democracy, the right to choose, religious tolerance among other causes that he believes would move the world to a better stage.

Trump’s speeches and campaigns seem to directly target the same causes that Soros supports, but negatively. This is why George wanted Hillary to win the elections, stating that Donald Trump is “doing the work of ISIS.”

From AmWay To Education Dick DeVos Proves Himself A Success

I have always been amazed at the way the Grand Rapids, Michigan based business leader Dick DeVos finds the time to be such an effective campaigner for education reform when he leads such an effective and profitable business career. Dick first came to my attention through his time spent as the President of the Orlando Magic NBA franchise in 1991 where he proved his doubters wring in believing his age and experience levels would work against him in the roles of President and CEO. None of us should have underestimated the chances of success for Dick DeVos as I believe he had already proven himself to be a business success with the AmWay Corporation.

 

Despite being the son of AmWay founder Rich DeVos, Dick was never given a career at the corporation without having earned a promotion first; I believe the decade working in various sectors of the company provided Dick DeVos with a grounding that has helped him achieve success in all the business interests he has since pursued. In 1986, Dick was finally appointed to an executive position at AmWay in the difficult role of international sales director where he excelled in providing an increase in sales from just five percent of those recorded by AmWay to more than 50 percent by 1991 when Dick joined the Orlando Magic.

 

In my own opinion, Dick DeVos understands the need for all businesses to look for ways of developing for the future, which is something the Northwood University graduate did with AmWay over the course of a number of years. Now seen as the number one direct sales company in the U.S., AmWay was restructured with the Alticor holding company in control under the leadership of Dick DeVos who I believe ensured the future of the company to be bright throughout the 21st century. I believe Dick DeVos wants to achieve as much as possible in his life and believed he had completed his work with AmWay when he announced his retirement in 2002. Dick DeVos is now estimated to have a personal wealth of over $5 billion and continues to find success with his own Windquest Group he and wife Betsy use to make seize their own investment opportunities.
