    George Soros is a Hungarian-born American businessman and philanthropist and perhaps most notably a subject of (often Anti-Semitic) conspiracy theories from people on both the left and right.

    History

    The future billionaire was born in 1930 in Budapest, Hungary to a non-observant Jewish family, In 1936, Soros's family changed their name from the German-Jewish "Schwartz" to "Soros", as protective camouflage in increasingly antisemitic Hungary under Miklos Horthy's dictatorial regime. The Soros family survived Nazi Germany's occupation of Hungary and World War II by purchasing documents to say that they were Christians. In 1947, 17-year-old George Soros moved to England.

    Soros began his business career by taking various jobs at merchant banks in the UK and then the US, before starting his first hedge fund, Double Eagle, in 1969. Profits from his first fund furnished the seed money to start Soros Fund Management, his second hedge fund, in 1970. Double Eagle was renamed Quantum Fund which by the time of its funding had $12 million in assets under management. As of 2011 Quantum Fund had $25 billion, the majority of Soros's overall net worth. Soros is known as "The Man Who Broke the Bank of England" because of his short sale of US$10 billion worth of pounds sterling, which made him a profit of $1 billion during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crisis.

    The Hungarian-American billionaire is notorious for Open Society Foundations (OSF) a grantmaking network founded and chaired by George Soros, himself. OSF is active in over 30 countries and financially supports civil society groups around the world, with a stated aim of advancing justice, education, public health and independent media. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s during the fall of communism, OSF played an important role helping various Eastern European countries transition from communist dictatorship to free-market capitalism and liberal democracy. OSF lucrative activities across the world have gotten Soros into several feuds with various dictators and strongmen such Mahathir Mohamad in Malaysia, Viktor Orban in Hungary, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in Turkey, Xi Jinping in China, Min Aung Hlaing in Myanmar, among countless other’s who accuse him of fomenting regime change on behalf of “Globalist Elites.”

    Frenemies

    • Neoconservatism - While, I opposed the Iraq War, I still enjoy funding foreign resistance groups within the former Eastern Bloc.
    • Kissingerism - You also played a key role in the fall of communism but why so chummy with Russia and China?
    • Neoliberalism - Free-Market Capitalism and Open Societies will make the road to liberal democracy much easier. But deregulating financial markets and lowering taxes for the rich is a bad idea.


    Enemies

    • Right-Wing Populism - Stop making up anti-semitic conspiracy theories about me! Also how can I be a communist when I’ve dedicated my life fighting communism and spreading free-market capitalism worldwide?
    • Xi Jinping Thought - I consider you to be the biggest threat to Open Society.
