How George Soros Approaches Trump and Capitalism Read more

How George Soros Approaches Trump and Capitalism

George Soros has worked his entire life to become one of the foremost fighters for progressive values on the planet. Soros is, of course, known for his work through his philanthropic arm — the Open Society Foundations. The OSF has been focused on creating a borderless world where people hold their government accountable, freedom is available for everyone, and social justice is constantly fought for. These values, along with his billionaire status, have made George Soros enemy #1 of the entire right wing political party on Earth. The scariest part to the right wing is that Soros is successful and he isn’t going away any time soon.

George Soros was raised as a child in Hungary before ultimately he would have to flee during the Nazi Occupation of 1944. Soros and his family, all Jews, would go on to help countless individuals flee the country before they themselves fled for London. Still, over 500,000 people would die during that year of occupation, a catastrophic and tragic number. This event would shape and sharpen Soros’ viewpoints as he grew older. He realized how dangerous an oppressive regime of nationalists could be. He understood what it was like for justice to only be applied in part. Visit Project Syndicate to learn more about George.

So, when Donald Trump began campaigning on a platform of hate, ignorance, and intolerance George Soros felt obliged to get back into the action. Soros would leap back into the political fray in order to start fundraising for progressive politicians, including Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Soros would donate nearly $25 million to Clinton and the rest of the progressive party ticket. These millions would go toward combating the billions that the conservative Koch Brothers pour into each and every election. Still, Donald Trump would win the Presidency and George Soros would vow to never back down, constantly being a thorn in the side of President Trump as he sought to enact his destructive legislation.

Much of what Soros has he can owe to capitalism, but that hasn’t prevented him from looking at the market critically. Capitalism, Soros believes, is actually one of the primary threats of a civilized and ‘open society’. Soros pulled the ‘open society’ term from Henri Bergson, a writer back in the 1930s, as well as the works of Karl Popper whom Soros would study while going to school in London. Capitalism, not communism, Soros believes to be the biggest threat facing the nation today. Read more about George’s life story at

George Soros points out that much of the world believes in the ‘magic of the marketplace’ but he also posits that this isn’t a good thing. Soros believes that what he believes to be the ‘common good‘ cannot be pursued if self-interest is at the core of all our dealings. These are strong words to consider, especially from someone as successful as George Soros.

What the Mexico’s New Well Represents for Mexico’s Future, with Talos Energy

It’s been a long time since Mexico has advanced their commitment to the oil industry in its offshore waters. They’ve been silent and the industry wasn’t updating for nearly 80 years, but, in 2017, Mexico has finally invested in the front with a new well. Since 1938, no events like this have happened as Mexico nationalized the industry.

In 80 years, 2017 was the first time the private company Oil Plc, together with Houston’s Talos Energy LLC and their partner oil firm Sierra Oil & Gas, invested in the oil well and began trilling the content with ease. The Mexican waters have always been a target of the private companies in the country, but it’s been almost a century that the nation has not given attention to the matter.

This action will help the country attract competitors from the exterior market, and multinational companies are more likely to want to install a subsidiary in the Mexican territory. The energy industry will have more participants and a higher potential as a result of the construction of the well.

The Talos Energy LLC is one of the most prominent energy companies for Mexico, and it was founded by the entrepreneur Tim Duncan, the financial expert who rose the company to its current net –worth of almost a billion dollars.

The Talos Energy has begun drilling the well with their partners under Tim Duncan’s supervision since May 21 of 2017.

Talos Energy has many assets in the Gulf of Mexico, and they are, although a relatively small company compared to the standards of the international oil industry, they are responsible for thousands of barrels of oils for the last couple of years, being a key participant in the energy market and the development of Mexico in this department.

The opening of the well is a major event for the improvement of Mexico in the international run for the oil market. The offshore of the nation has a lot of potential, and the exterior market could be the key to a better development of the country.

In such a future Tim Duncan’s company, Talos Energy LLC, will be a significant partner in turning Mexico into a great target for the oil companies.
