Financial Crisis Brings Big Profits For Sanjay Shah

European debt is surely paying off for some big wigs in London. It seems that many are taking huge dividends payments for the woes being felt in the European markets. These payments are coming from hedge funds that have been set up that bet on whether or not the European financial situation gets better or worse.

One such investor is Yan Huo. He is the Chief Executive of Capulo Investment Management. He is also among almost 18 executives in that firm that have benefitted greatly because of european financial woes. His take on the whole situation weighed in at more than 5.11 million pounds. Overall the total made by the entire firm was more than 92 million pounds.

Sanjay Shah was another financial wizard that was able to make quite a profit from the financial woes of the european union. He realized an amazing take of almost 19 million pounds from the venture. This is nothing new for Shah who runs a number of different businesses that are involved with the financial sector.

Shah is a self proclaimed millionaire who has “retired” because he feels that he has made his fortune and now wants to enjoy time with his family. This also offers himn more time to spend on charitable ventures that he is most interested in. He runs his own charity called Autism Rocks that helps to spread information and supports research on the neurologically based disease.

Shah is also the founder and CEO of Solo Capital based out of London. This is an investing firm that offers a number of different investing opportunities for investors to grow wealth and stabilize their portfolios. They have a team of experts that can help offer guidance on which opportunities are best for each client based on their individual needs and future visions.

Shah has been noted as being quite adept at forecasting good investment opportunities so it is no wonder that his recent landfall in the european financial has happened. It will be a while to see if these profits continue for these hedge funds. Hopefully the european financial crisis will turn around soon and offer more profits for everyone involved.

Black Outs Hit Venezuela

Venezuela appears to be heading towards a recession. The country has decided to cut power usage over the next 40 days, and possibly even longer, in order to preserve energy. The specific plan repoerted by Angel.co involves shutting down power for at least 4 hours per day across Venezuela. El Guri dam is approaching record low water levels, but will hopefully be improved by these energy preservation measures. The plan may continue beyond 40 days depending on its effectiveness.

These blackouts will affect Venezuelan citizens directly by limiting their acess to groceries and basic household items. Bread, milk, and eggs will be harder for these people to obtain. Basic imported items will also be harder to obtain because the government will be unable to afford the processes. Since January 2016, the Zika Virus has been spreading, and medical equipment is sparse. Even on the black market Venezuelan currency is not even worth an American penny at this time. Venezuela is definitely taking steps to fix this issue immediately. The country hopes reducing their power usage does not need to exceed 40 days, and that operations will run smoothly again soon.

George Soros Reveals His Plan For Dealing With Europe’s Ongoing Refugee Crisis

The billionaire hedge fund expert George Soros has been vocal in his criticism of the European Union and its handling of the refugee crisis for a number of months, but has responded to the latest plan unveiled by the EU and Turkey by revealing his own ideas on how to handle the problem. In an article published by The New York Review Of Books George Soros explained how the EU had the ability to tackle the humanitarian issues the refugee crisis has caused in a more timely and efficient way than the latest EU-Turkey plan allows for.

George Soros has a personal interest in the handling of Europe’s refugee crisis he has blamed on the continued bombing of Syria by the Russian military on http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-01-07/global-markets-at-the-beginning-of-a-crisis-george-soros-says; Soros was born in Hungary and found himself a refugee after surviving the Holocaust of World War II. The goodwill George Soros received after arriving in London as a refugee allowed him to complete his studies before continuing his refugee journey by arriving in New York to start his career as a hedge fund manager.

For over a quarter of a century George Soros found himself at the head of one of the world’s most successful hedge funds that achieved an average of 20 percent growth throughout his time as its leader. Soros hit the headlines in the 1990s when his hedge fund was named as achieving such success that the British government was forced to devalue the Pound Sterling.

In his latest article, George Soros dips into his experience as a global finance expert in his bid to explain a better way of dealing with the European refugee crisis. Soros believes the plan forced upon EU member on http://www.nytimes.com/topic/person/george-soros states by the Turkish government and German Chancellor Angela Merkel is not truly European and could be seen as stifling the human rights of refugees who have already arrived in European countries like Greece. The deal forces quota regulations on member states regarding the number of refugees they must accept and has re imagined Greece as simply a stopping point for refugees before they are dispersed forcibly across the continent and to Turkey.

George Soros believes Greece is not equipped with the funds required to care for the refugees who have already arrived in the country and those who continue to make the dangerous crossing of its borders. Soros puts forward a number of financial options for dealing with the crisis, including a continent wide tax he believes member states would not agree to; instead, George Soros believes the use of the AAA rating the European union maintains with credit agencies could provide funding from a loan totaling less than one quarter of one percent of the annual GDP of the continent. In the view of the legendary hedge fund manager this would allow the European Union the chance to create a basis on which to deal with refugees entering the continent in the future.

A motion to amend compliant by SEC against the Laidlaw & Company Ltd has been announced by the Relmada Therapeutics Inc. in the United States District Court. This motion is said to be part of the already amended compliant which is part of the lawsuit that the firm had earlier filed in the Nevada District Court. The already amended complaint is inclusive of an extra legal claim which is based on the Laidlaw’s breach which is owed to the Relmada.

Thor Halvorssen Surprises Fox News Host on Socialism

Outspoken human rights activist and film producer, Thor Halvorssen Mendoza recently appeared on the Fox Business News segment The Intelligence Report, hosted by Trish Regan. The segment was on the topic of “Bernie Sanders’ Socialist Agenda.” The first thing Regan asked her guest was why he thinks socialism is a inherent violation of fundamental human rights. Thor Halvorssen, with characteristic specificity, replied that such a statement needed to be qualified. He went on to remark that socialism is not inherently problematic, but rather the extent to which it is implement within a government and that it is generally most destructive when it is used as a mask for would-be dictators to seize power.

After listening to her guest’s remarks, Trish Regan then drove the conversation back to the traditional definition of socialism. Remarking flatly that Bernie Sanders supports, “Have no idea what socialism is as a recipe for how government works.” Ms. Regan then pressed her guest to explain how socialism works but he interjected saying that this greatly depends on a wide variety of factors such as where the definition of socialism is taken from. The definition for socialism can be purely academic definition, a historic definition or even a modern definition of socialism (which Thor Halvorssen pointed out was very prevalent in countries such as Sweden and Denmark who were both democratic and socialist).

Mr. Halvorssen then further elaborated on the topic by saying that his home country of Venezuela has a good example of a bad socialist government as it is a nation whose government’s price tampering has caused massive shortages and horribly damaged the economy. Then Ms. Regan’s guest dropped a surprising fact – he had made the largest possible financial donation to Bernie Sanders campaign. Ms. Regan, obviously surprised at the fact that a man who had so vehemently and consistently decried socialism was now seemingly in favor of it, asked him what caused him to support Bernie Sanders. Film maker Thor Halvorssen replied that it was a simple matter, that, as he had said before, that democratic socialism is possible and that it is imminently preferable to a Hillary Clinton presidency. He qualified this latter condemnation by stating that he could never support a presidential candidate who has taken money from dictators.
