George Soros has written 14 books, as well as countless essays and articles about the society, economy and politics. Soros has also founded his own foundations, the Open Society Foundations, which works to achieve human rights, government transparency and an open society.
Before George Soros got into philanthropy and writing, he was in finance. Soros attended the London School of Economics and then used his degree in the United States where he formed his own international investment fund, Soros Fund Management. George Soros had incredible success in the financial world and his success has only continued.
But before founding his own fund or going to the London School of Economics, Soros was a jewish boy growing up in Budapest. His family survived through both years of Nazi occupation and then years of communist domination. Soros credits this experience as to why he is now in philanthropy and cares so passionately about creating more open societies.
Soros recently sat down with the New York Book Review and discussed his opinions and predictions in regard to politics and society in the European Union. One of the main issues he talked about was the refugee crisis that is currently plaguing Europe.
Soros recommended that the European Union needs a much more comprehensive plan than just the asylum policy that Angela Merkel put in place. It was a good start but member states are still too concerned with their own interests. A more comprehensive plan would place more governance over the influx of asylum seekers, making it more orderly, safer and at a rate that Europe can absorb them effectively. But the real key is that the plan can not just be for inside of Europe’s borders, it needs to extend past that so that individuals wanting to seek asylum are safe and are not wasting money.
Soros’ foundation developed a plan with six points that would protect asylum seekers. Hungary’s President also created a plan but the point was to protect the country’s borders. Unfortunately, President Orban’s plan would force refugees to rush to and flood Europe before they close the borders. Soros’ plan would take facilities to where the refugees are. His plan is for the whole of Europe and would help to control the entire continent’s borders, rather than just individual countries.
The true key that Soros is advocating for in his plan is for the European Union to come together during this challenge and to fight for human rights and the liberties enjoyed in Europe. If Europe does not band together and start addressing these issues as a team, the union will not be able to last for much longer.
