Ferguson Highlights The Civil Rights Backing Given By George Soros

The work of George Soros is often referred to by many political leaders and financial experts as being located in the work he completes as one of the world’s leading hedge fund managers and as a political donor towards the U.S.-based Democratic Party. What few people know of the work of George Soros is the fact he has become a major philanthropist through the work of the Open Society Foundations he created in the mid-1980s and took up its current form in 1993. Politico reports the donations made to political candidates from the Democratic Party totalled $27 million to the campaign of John Kerry in 2004 and a further $25 million for Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016; in contrast, it has been reported by The Washington Times Soros provided an annual level of funding of over $33 million annually to the civil rights groups attending the Ferguson protest movement of 2014.

At the Ferguson protests, the influence of George Soros and the Open Society Foundations was easy to see as groups from across the U.S. came together in the wake of the shooting of African-American male Michael Brown by law enforcement officials. The protest movement began with local organizers mobilizing protesters from nearby areas of Missouri before the case became a cause celebre for national groups seeking to position the protests on the mainstream media; the $33 million in funding provided for groups supporting social justice reform by the Open Society Foundations allowed the protests to become some of the best-known in the world in the Summer and Fall of 2014. Soros backed groups have been key in the development of the publicizing of the protests and allowing copycat protests popping up across the U.S.

The need to change the influences of the major political parties across the U.S. has become a major part of the work of George Soros and the Open Society Foundations, but also inspired the political advisors who work closely with the man who played a major part in the devaluation of the British Pound in 1992. The political environment of the world has caused concern for George Soros as he feels the world is being pushed to a position of uncertainty in terms of global security and financial crisis. Alongside reports George Soros felt Hillary Clinton was the best candidate available for maintaining the economic stability of the world he was also concerned about the volatile nature of President Donald Trump and his advisors; Soros not only provided a great deal of backing for Hillary Clinton but also continued his work as a leader in the civil rights movement of the U.S. in the 21st-century.

Dick DeVos Looks To Bring A New Leader To His Range Of Business Interests

In 1991, I first became aware of Dick DeVos when he was appointed President and CEO of the Orlando Magic NBA franchise following the purchase of the basketball team by his family, according to the Dick DeVos Wikipedia page. At the time I thought the appointment of an individual with little to no basketball experience was risky, but I was quickly turned into a believer in the business sense of Dick DeVos because of the success he brought to the team I support. I have followed the career of Dick ever since and recently enjoyed an article providing information on the latest business leader appointed to The Stow Company, which is part of his investment company, The Windquest Group.

 

The appointment of Phil Dolci is the latest step Dick DeVos has taken to create a successful career for himself as an investor and leader of The Windquest Group. The MLive article I read about the appointment of Phil Dolci explained the long successful career the business leader has developed so far, including his education at the Kellogg School of Business followed by over 20 years of business leadership experience.

 

The development of The Windquest Group comes after the investment company was formed by Dick DeVos and now acts as the base for business opportunities explored by Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy; both Dick and Betsy have impressed me with their work to create a more stable economy in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area of the U.S. In fact, I believe the work Dick DeVos has completed as the leader of the Grand Action Plan for Grand Rapids will act as a blueprint for economic success for the future of the area.

 

I believe the work of Dick and Betsy DeVos is as impressive in the non profit arena as it is in the profit based businesses they run as the leaders of The Windquest Group. In terms of the not for profit work of the DeVos family the continued school choice program work the couple complete at their own expense is as impressive to me as anything they have achieved as successful business people.
