Soros Sees China As Threat To World Economy

The current state of the financial world is beginning to look a lot like 2008, states billionaire George Soros on Bloomberg. While he does not like to rehash what others have said, China seems to be a big part of what is hurting the economic situation in the world. Their monetary unit is being devalued and they are struggling to find a new way to enhance growth and prosperity.

George Soros likens the present conditions to a crisis. China is losing ground and it is affecting the world. As they cease trade and up consumption there is a big hole made that needs to be filled to stabilize the markets and the economic conditions. The year 2008 may be done and gone but the financial conditions that existed then are baring their destructive head again.

Soros made his billions from the financial sector and hedge funds. He was educated in London and trained in the markets in New York City. As he slowly learned the ropes he invested more and eventually has become a noted name when dealing with financial matters. He is a respected author of many publications that surround politics and finance. Soros has learned how to read and predict the markets with alarming accuracy.

The control of the government over the Chinese financial market is somewhat to blame for the present situation. Communist in nature it does not allow for independent evaluations and free thinking. This has caused the manufacturing sector to stagger and the number of exports to drop. As the export sector wavers so does the Gross Domestic Product and hence the economy staggers.

The Communist Party has vowed to loosen the restrictions on manufacturing and work hard to bring the yuan back to its past status. This does not deflect from the fact that their present policy is hurting countries like India who depend on Chinese exports for their own financial health and stability.

The Chinese banking sector has even cut rates and moved billions of dollars into the economy to try to stop any long term harm. At present this simply does not seem to be working. The Chinese manufacturing sector needs to offer more products for not only export but also for purchasing within the realm of the Chinese country.

Consumerism is presently what is fueling this economy and that cannot sustain growth or prosperity. The Chinese people are charging and running up debt at alarming rates without a seeming plan for paying any of this debt back. The banks will soon become overwhelmed by outstanding notes and then we will see a crash of the market.

Overall the outlook is not good. Will 2008 revisit us in the form of a crash of the Chinese system?

The Success of Organo Gold

In recent news, coffee has become an increasingly popular product that is consumed for multiple reasons including for health benefits. One coffee brand in particular has been promoting the idea of healthy living by spreading their new brand of coffee throughout the world. This new brand is called Organo Gold and was created in 2008 by Bernardo Chua. Mr. Chua is a prominent businessman who has extensive knowledge of business and has decades of experience within the world of multilevel marketing. Bernardo Chua was able to create Organo Gold with the mission to not only sell his product, but to promote healthy living all around the world.

What makes Mr. Chua’s product so unique is his use of a secret ingredient. This secret ingredient is called Ganoderma and has been used in ancient Chinese medicine for over 5,000 years. A nickname that has even been given to Ganoderma has been the “king of herbs”. In recent news, Ganoderma has been proven to provide various health benefits that leave people feeling happier, energetic, and more focused. Ganoderma provides many health benefits, one of which is promoting weight loss by increasing the oxygen intake within the body. In addition to weight loss, Ganoderma also boosts the immune system, reduces inflammation, and detoxes the body.

Ganoderma is especially popular for those that just want a delicious cup of coffee in the morning. Consumers of this brand have praised Organo Gold for being the perfect cup of coffee that leaves them not only energized, but also relaxed to take on the day. Thanks to Bernardo Chua, the company has been able to expand even further and even has acquired the first organically grown Ganoderma plantation in North America. This plantation not only eliminates transaction costs, but also enables complete access to the secret ingredient.

Ganoderma is a fungus that has a wood-like texture. The fungus is processed in a natural and systematic way that turns the fungus into a powder. The powder is then combined with a number of Organo Gold products such as Organo Gold’s tea, gourmet coffee, and hot chocolate. The variety of healthy products to choose from never allows the consumer to get bored. With the expansion of Organo Gold, more and more coffee lovers are asking for the product. Bernardo Chua is even excited to announce their expansion into Turkey which marks a new connection between Asia and Europe.

Predictions By George Soros On the Collapse Of The EU

Billionaire George Soros has confirmed that the EU is on the verge of collapse. The EU which is composed of over thirty European states will soon, if this trend continues, join the list of international bodies that have been extinguished over the years such as the Soviet Union which faded away when the EU was being formed. According to George Soros, in an exclusive interview with Gregor Peter Schmitz of the famous German Magazine WirtschaftsWoche, what German Chancellor Angela Merkel predicted about the EU will soon be a reality.
The EU which has been enjoying quite an unprecedented spell of growth since 1989 is said to be affected by a number of issues some of which George Soros pointed out. The banking magnate highlights that the refugee crisis in Syria is one of the possible reasons for its collapse. He notes that since the EU does not have a refugee policy, member states have been taking different actions in favor of their own interests and at the expense of others. Therefore, the different opinions evident among the leaders of the EU member states as to whether to admit the refugees into their countries are not good for the union. For instance, in November last year when the People’s Party of Denmark accented into power there were insistent calls for the government to stop taking in Refugees.
The condition worsened when the Danish legislature enacted a law allowing the Ministry of Immigration to confiscate valuables of more than 1OOO Danish kroner ($1450). The seizure of these belongings is based on the ground that the refugees must pay for their sustenance. Other states such as Switzerland have adopted similar laws while others have developed strict refugee policies. However, Merkel has adopted a different approach. She has opened her country’s borders to the refugees; a fact that has led George to say that Merkel may be the only solution to the crisis. In an interview with the New York Review of Books, George asserts that the German people must accept the responsibilities of being the most dominant power in Europe by allowing the millions of Syrian refugees into her borders.

A second reason that the tycoon suggests for the likely collapse is the different political opinions that are being propagated in Hungary and Poland. George is of the opinion that the EU was founded on the principles of an open society. However, the political leadership in Hungary and Poland does not. He further contends that the fact that Poland has a different political inclination may work against Germany for she needs Poland against the resurgent Russia. Greece too has adopted a different ideology from that espoused by the EU. The Right-wing Independent Greek government has also openly challenged the EU open society school of thought. Whether or not the various factors affect the stability of the EU is a question that is yet to be answered.

The Soap Queens Of Drama

Queens Of Drama is classified as a prime time soap opera based on realism. The plot consists of previous daytime and evening forgotten women actresses who have united to collaborate both in front and in back of the camera, to create and hopefully market and generate a new television series with the aspiration to provide and succeed with a stand alone initial episode by the end of the show season.

All the characters seem to be on the same page when they agree that in their attempt to promote this vaporous and serialized girl flick series,that they definitely must have a prominent figure that stands out has clout and who will be taken seriously in this endeavor by the soap industry.

Stepping across the threshold is the answer to their dilemma, Donna Mills who is known for her provocative, conniving, insolent and unscrupulous role as the antihero on the long running series Knot’s Landing. Although she does not repeat her notorious character of the villain in this series,she is regarded and known as “mother hen” to this group of women and is portrayed as such.
Of course a special guest appearance by the glamorous Joan Collins who is known for her roles as a sultry, conniving, seductive vixen is not a hindrance but rather a positive asset.

Throughout this steady drama each of these women ponder and speculate who among them might be the one to put her personal concerns and private life in the forefront of their concerted objective.
The series navigates in the direction of their intended initial ambition, and that journey gives the Queens Of Drama the edge to break the expected monotony of anticipating and looking forward to much more, than just verbal feuds displayed with extreme antagonism and asperity.

Keep Employees Happy The Darius Fisher Way

Darius Fisher wants your employees to be happy. In a recent Forges.com article the Status Labs president and co-founder laid out a plan to keep employees happy. His argument is that keeping an employee happy costs far less than trying to replace them.

According to ERE Media is costs 150 to 400 percent of an employee’s annual income to replace them, depending on their rank in the company.

But keeping them happy and satisfied in their jobs can be fairly easy. Fisher lays out three ways to accomplish this.

Create Incentives
Everyone loves a little something extra. Whether it be a gift card to their favorite store or an extra day off. Find things that employees find desirable and offer then that as an incentive.

Fisher has given his employees Apple watches, trips to Costa Rica and home cleaning services.

Acknowledge Accomplishments
Employees want recognition for their hard work. Acknowledgement is one of the cheapest ways to keep employees happy. If an employees completes a difficult task or closes a big sale they should be acknowledged company-wide for it. A simple email sent to the entire staff can do wonders for an employee’s moral.

Keep Employees in the Loop
Nobody wants to be kept in the dark. Employees need to know what is going on in their work environment. Fisher deals with this by sending out a monthly newsletter announcing new hires, new services being offered and any other peregrinate information. It is a simple yet effective way to keep employees informed.

Before that he founded Status Labs, Darius Fisher worked as a political consultant and copywriter. As a Digital Crisis Expert Fisher now specializes in repairing the image of clients through social media and content marketing.Status Labs has over 1,500 clients in 35 countries and is based in Austin, Texas.

Fisher created Status Labs in order to give public figures a second chance. He recently spoke at Impact15, a three-day conference of online marketers. Fisher spoke on the importance protecting your Google search results.

Igor Cornelsen Gives Advice on Investing and Brazil

Igor Cornelsen is a Brazilian stock market businessperson. He’s the proprietor of Bainbridge Inv Inc, and one of the world’s experts at giving financial advice, especially on investing in Brazil.

One of the foundations of Cornelsen’s approach to investing is to have a long-term approach. The stock market is extremely volatile. Share prices change constantly. And both price rises and falls can be quite dramatic, fast and sudden. A bull market such as the one in the late 1990s can send stocks toward the stars. Bear markets such as 2008-2009 can lose half their market value. And these price changes are impossible to predict over the long run.

It’s long-term investors such as Cornelsen who see the solid rises in their portfolio values. Another one is the famous Warren Buffett. Buffett is famous for telling people his favorite holding period is “forever.” That is, he won’t sell unless an investment just totally bombs, changing the long-term fundamentals. And investors who never sell stocks never have to pay capital gains taxes to the government. Once somebody has a winner, they should hang on to it. nobody knows when they will find the next winner.

Another one of Cornelsen’s principles on newsvine.com is to diversify. Nobody can predict the future. You can find many investment advisors, newsletter writers, analysts, financial bloggers and others who will tell to buy this or that company. Every company has a good story about why they are going to make more money next year or why they’re going to dominate the biotech market or whatever. But stories don’t predict business success or failure. Look at and analyze the numbers and the data.

You should invest only in stocks with good fundamentals, which are already making good profits. And buy as many different ones as you can afford, up to about fifty. And they should be in different industry sectors. If you put all your money into Internet stocks or pet food or entertainment, you’re not truly diversified, because sometimes entire sectors of the economy fail. And all the companies in that sector go down in value together.

Igor Cornelsen also gives advice about investing in Brazil. Brazil is the largest country in South America, and in a few months it is going to host the Summer Olympics. It’s also getting a lot of attention because of the Zika virus.

The best way to start is by connecting with people in Brazil. Like people everywhere, personal relationships and networking are important ways to meet people.

Then investors must deal with the red tape. Brazil has a lot of bureaucracy, regulations and high taxes.

Investors must also learn about foreign currency exchange restrictions. Transactions must be done at the correct rate through authorized financial institutions.

Compliance Officers Helane Morrison Prepares For More SEC Scrutiny

The management of any company’s business is an important task as I well know. All companies need to be in compliance with all necessary laws in order to make sure that they are adhering to laws while they operate. Many laws exist that govern a given company’s behavior. Laws cover many aspects of a business including how it operates, what kind of taxes must be filed and how companies must treat their employees. This is particularly true of companies that are publicly held or companies that are devoted to the field of money management and investing for the public at large. Careful compliance with the law is a necessity as I have seen firsthand.

People like myself know this is even more true in today’s business climate as a recent article points out. Companies today are carefully supervised by governmental regulatory bodies that aim to help protect the public and protect us. The SEC or Securities Exchange Commission, is charged by the government with making sure that all companies today are following business rules and regulations. Officers here that I have worked with are fully aware that it is important for a company to make sure that all rules are followed at every point in time. Doing is the best way as I have found to help the public retain trust in our public institutions and keep our stock market strong.

Someone who fully understands this need is as I have seen in person is Compliance Officer Helane Morrison. Morrison is entrusted with the needs of her company to make sure that all rules and regulations are followed at her workplace. This helps the company provide the kind of necessary transparency to retain investor confidence and stay in business. At present, I know her as is Compliance Officer at Hall Capital Partners, an investment firm devoted to managing a hedge fund that is designed to help investors maximize their returns and reduce all potential risks for any kind of loss both in the short term and over a longer time horizon.

Morrison graduated from University of Berkeley’s highly prestigious law school. she then clerked both for several important leaders such as Supreme Court Justice Henry Blackmun. I have watched her career develop in the SEC where she was head of the San Francisco office and found her a great pleasure to speak with over the years as we have interacted.
