George Soros gained international recognition in September 1992 when he placed a bet of $10 billion on a single currency. He was speculating that the Bank of England would have to devalue its currency, and he would make a profit after devaluation. Soros later turned out to be right, and he made more than $1 billion in profit from the bet. From that day, he was referred by many as “the man who broke the Bank of England.” He is well-known for his contribution to the growth of Quantum Fund, a firm that generated an average annual revenue of more than 30% when he was the president.

George Soros has yet again expressed doubts about the China’s debt-fueled economy that it resembles the U.S. in 2007-08. According to George Soros, the March credit growth should be viewed as a warning sign after the new credit in the second-biggest economy hit $362 billion in the month of February surpassing the predicted level of debt at 1.4 trillion yuan. Soros relates the rising level of debt to what happened to the U.S. before the crisis. The banks are supplying more credit to keep the bad debts at their books while the loss-making enterprise is still alive.

George Soros Trading Again

Soros is the founder and chairman of the Soros Fund Management, which currently has over $24 billion in assets under management. He had recently engaged the Chinese government in a war of words when he said that a hard landing for China would be “practically unavoidable.” Soros noted that china’s banks have more loans than deposits which put problems to the assets side but also an increasing problem in the liability side. The problem could become even more complicated if the banks continue to lend to each other putting the economy into additional uncertainty and instability.

At the moment, the problem is deferred to a future date, but as long as the credit level continues to rise, the crisis is still pending. Recently, Brexit has presented an element of truth to the issues Soros pointed out earlier. Soros noted that the world faces challenges such as immigration problem due to rising geopolitical tension and rising levels of terrorism around the world, the Russian-Ukrainian crisis, China’s debt problem, Brexit, and the uncertainty in the U.S. dollar to remain stable.

Brexit caused the price of gold to rise sharply as investors anticipated hard economic times for Britain and the European Union. The Great Britain Pound has also lost more than 20% of its value now trading at 1.31 against the U.S. dollar from the previous 1.45 against the U.S. before the Brexit referendum. As Soros predicted that Britain leaving the European Union would have adverse consequences for its economy, the effects were felt in the whole world when stock markets lost over $2 trillion in stock market value.

The largest provider of civil and criminal technological and communication solutions – Securus Technologies – has decided to advocate for integrity and honesty in the industry by exposing one of the players, Global Tel Link, of executing unauthorized activities while serving one of their client, Louisiana Department of Corrections.

According to the President of the company, Richard Smith, the Public Service Commission (PSC) had investigated GTL’s operations as they served Louisiana Department of Corrections. Global Tel Link deliberately inflated charges to the facilities’ customers by programming their telephones to rate calls higher than the default rates set by the Federal Communication Commission’s tariffs. They did this by adding at least 15 or 36 seconds to every call made to an inmate eventually overcharging them. They also engaged in a practice of billing a single call more than once and as a result, swindled the facility by an amount of $1.2 million.

The actions of GTL were downright offensive to the industry as they were against the aspects of integrity and honesty to clients. Every carrier in the industry is supposed to serve the customers with their interest at heart and not just focus on making money.

The move to expose GTL came after Securus had acquired an innovative technology company, JPay Inc., a start-up that introduced email, electronic payments and a host of educational and entertainment applications to the correctional segment. The acquisition was meant to thrust the company into developing virtually any software that correctional facilities required to operate prisons. It was also an opportunity to acquire new teams and products that would ease activities in the industry.

The company intends to continue its commitment to serving and connecting people by providing incident management, emergency responses, biometric analysis, information management and inmate self-service.

John D. Rockefeller, one of history’s most powerful and intelligent (not to mention enormously successful) men imparted this wisdom before his death: “I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.”

Now, the amateur may be thinking “I’ll persevere for gold”; the primary problem is then finding an ‘in’ to the market without making too many sacrifices. After all, investment bankers are in it for massive wealth generation, the benchmark of success.

Investment banking is an incredibly enigmatic source of wealth generation. Today’s enormously powerful analytics are puzzling from an outsider’s perceptive. As with all societal institutions, investment banking has evolved over the years, and continues to display new practices and phrasing. Terms like: “Unicorn”, “Crocodile”, and “Cockroach” are now used to describe modern start-ups.

Do not be fooled by the frivolity of these descriptors. They are critical to properly understand modern investment banking.

Luckily, leaders like Martin Lustgarten provide a beacon of light for the common man looking to enter the market.

Martin Lustgarten provides his followers with a human touch that is very real but left unperceived by those that fear the unknown. In his spare time, Lustgatern trades vintage watches and enjoys life with his family. This is a man whose heart falls in line with the spirit of The Renaissance, during which men did not limit themselves to mastery in only one theme.

The clever banker also offers advice and, “#interesting” articles that apply directly to the market and enlighten potential investors. Following Lustgarten’s leadership will equip an amateur with a tangible mental investment.

Squaw Valley is a famous resort for skiing in North Tahoe. In the last few years, the region of Lake Tahoe has been hit by massive drought. The drought has significantly affected operations at Squaw Valley and other resorts in the area. The effects of the weather have been added to by the political battle to control the artistic Olympic Valley. The Olympic Valley is the location where Squaw Valley is situated.
According to a release by Reno Gazette-Journal, there is a reason to smile for the resorts in the region. The relief could come from both sides that are affecting them. During the revelation of the good news, Andy Wirth, who is the CEO and President of Squaw Valley, acknowledged the fact that the last four years had been hard for them.

Squaw-Alpine boss looks to turn page on ‘divisive’ fight

The political matters affecting the area also seem to be coming to an end. The people who were backing for Olympic Valley incorporation have formally withdrawn the quest. The efforts to Incorporate Olympic Valley had been considered a threat to the operations of their business.
Squaw Valley had put a lot of resources to fight the efforts to incorporate the region. The effects that were anticipated to arise include a rise in amounts charged in taxes on the businesses and residents. The level of services on offer would go down due to poor road management and snow clearing. Andy Wirth also said that they had expected the move to disengage the region from other communities in North Tahoe. He termed what would have happened in case the incorporation would cause a disaster.
Squaw Valley has laid down strategy to expand its real estate business by setting up more commercial and residential development. The company has also planned to build a gondola to connect Squaw Valley to its neighboring resort, Alpine Meadows. After the incorporation issue had settled, Wirth encouraged the people in the community to put effort on transport among other matters affecting the region.
Squaw Valley is not only a thriving resort. Squaw Valley tries to give back to the society as much as possible. The company has a program called Wounded Warrior that seeks to help war veterans acquire medical assistance among other benefits. The program was born when the CEO was involved in a life-threatening accident while skiing. The war veterans and their families when they come back home.
Andy Wirth has put in a lot of effort in moving Squaw Valley up the ladder. His vision is to establish the company into one of the best tourist destinations worldwide.

On Thursday, Influential individuals like soccer star David Beckham and wife Victoria, and Billionaire currency trader George Soros, will be pledging their support in order for the United Kingdom to stay within the European Union ahead of the big vote on Thursday over the contentious issue. David Cameron, who is the British prime minister, has also weighed in on the issue saying that the Brits don’t quit. Soros has said that the British vote that is in favor of leaving the 28-nation European union could do sever damage to the living standards and could trigger a plunge within the British pound. The plunge that could occur may even cause more damage than it did when it happened on Black Wednesday almost 24 years ago. The pound has the potential of falling by at least 15%, to being more then 20%, is what George Soros said in Tuesday’s Guardian newspaper in an opinion piece. It has been urged by Cameron, that the Britons that they vote for remaining in the bloc during a speech that he gave outside No. 10 Downing St., which took place just two days before the referendum. Soros has said that most likely, the fall in pound in the event of there being a “Brexit”, which is a exit of the British from EU, will be unlikely in bringing a rise of manufacturing exports, which was what happened after 1992.

European Exchange Rate Mechanism is a financial system, is a system that is used for reducing the volatility of exchange rates.

The former mayor of London, and now a member of Parliament, Boris Johnson, is in favor of leaving the EU, has told the radio station LBC, that he would like to apologize to British people if the event occurs where the country does vote for Brexit, and if there is a recession following a Brexit.
