Who Is George Soros? Judge For Yourself

"George Soros is the most dangerous man in the world because, just like the crazy megalomaniacs in old fifties movies, he is deceiving everybody into believing that he is altruistic, when in fact, he is using his Open Society/Shadow Party to undermine the very fabric of American society." - Human Events, "George Soros: Demagoat"

Key Points 

  • His ultimate goal is to end the concept of national sovereignty in favor of a global economic system characterized by open borders and central regulation.
  • He has spent billions of dollars promoting this agenda through various proxy organizations in the United States.
  • He has brought about the downfall of foreign governments through various means including currency manipulation and propaganda.
  • Soros contributed substantially to get President Obama elected and to Hillary Clinton's campaign.
  • He prefers to work invisibly.

60 Minutes Interview (1998)

Here are some key points from an interview #GeorgeSoros did with 60 Minutes' Jim Croft in 1998.
  1. "I am basically there to make money. I cannot and do not look at the social consequences of what I do." "As a competitor I've got to compete to win."
  2. Despite his amoral attitude toward making money, has a "tremendous sense of responsibility." He said: "As a human being I am concerned about the society in which I live."
  3. Admits he helped "confiscate property from the Jews." Does he feel guilty? Was it difficult? "Not at problem at all." "Of course I could be on the other side, I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn't be there, because that was - it's just like in markets, if I weren't there, of course I wasn't doing it, somebody else would be taking it away sense of guilt."
  4. Are you religious? "No." Do you believe in God? "No."
  5. Wants to save the world through regulation of the global economy, but admits he keeps his hedge fund accounts offshore so that they are not subject to regulation.

CNN Interview (2014)

The below is from the transcript of Soros' interview with Fareed Zakaria in 2014:
ZAKARIA: George Soros has made one of world's great fortunes betting on global trends, and he is deeply troubled by events and political trends in Ukraine, specifically, but Europe more broadly. He's just back from the region and he joins me to talk about what he saw, what he thinks and where he's putting his money.
George Soros, pleasure to have you on.
ZAKARIA: First on Ukraine, one of the things that many people recognized about you was that you during the revolutions of 1989 funded a lot of dissident activities, civil society groups in eastern Europe and Poland, the Czech Republic. Are you doing similar things in Ukraine? 
SOROS: Well, I set up a foundation in Ukraine before Ukraine became independent of Russia. And the foundation has been functioning ever since and played an important part in events now.

What is the difference between brand equity and brand parity?

Brand equity is a financial calculation. It is the difference between a commodity product or service and a branded one. For example if you sell a plain orange for $.50 but a Sunkist orange for $.75 and the Sunkist orange has brand equity you can calculate it at $.25 per orange.

Brand parity exists when two different brands have a relatively equal value. The reason we call it "parity" is that the basis of their value may be different. For example, one brand may be seen as higher in quality, while the other is perceived as fashionable.

What is the difference between "brand positioning," "brand mantra," and "brand tagline?"

Brand positioning statement: This is a 1–2 sentence description of what makes the brand different from its competitors (or different in its space), and compelling. Typically the positioning combines elements of the conceptual (e.g., “innovative design,” something that would be in your imagination) with the literal and physical (e.g., “the outside of the car is made of the thinnest, strongest metal on earth”). The audience for this statement is internal. It’s intended to get everybody on the same page before going out with any communication products.Brand mantra: This is a very short phrase that is used predominantly by people inside the organization, but also by those outside it, in order to understand the “essence” or the “soul” of the brand and to sell it to employees. An example would be Google’s “Don’t be evil.” You wouldn’t really see it in an ad, but you might see it mentioned or discussed in an article about the company intended to represent it to investors, influencers, etc.Br…

Nitro Cold Brew and the Oncoming Crash of Starbucks

A long time ago (January 7, 2008), the Wall Street Journal ran an article about McDonald's competing against Starbucks.
At the time the issue was that the former planned to pit its own deluxe coffees head to head with the latter.
At the time I wrote that while Starbucks could be confident in its brand-loyal consumers, the company, my personal favorite brand of all time,  "...needs to see this as a major warning signal. As I have said before, it is time to reinvent the brand — now.  "Starbucks should consider killing its own brand and resurrecting it as something even better — the ultimate, uncopyable 'third space' that is suited for the way we live now.  "There is no growth left for Starbucks as it stands anymore — it has saturated the market. It is time to do something daring, different, and better — astounding and delighting the millions (billions?) of dedicated Starbucks fans out there who are rooting for the brand to survive and succeed." Today as …
