The Tides of George Soros

by Nathan Hamm on 1/13/2005

I recently suggested that the fickleness of George Soros may mean that he is not particularly interested in helping Central Asia’s Soros foundations fight back against the assaults unleashed on them by the governments of their host countries [I didn’t make that particularly clear, but that was my point].

Soros throws himself entirely into his giving–a quality that is both good and bad depending on what he thinks about your cause at the time. Well, given his current passion, this is a bad thing for his beneficiaries in Central Asia.
