Ok this may be the wrong place to start this thread, so moderators feel free to move it.
I’ve been hearing all these conspiracies about George Soros on talk radio and tv for years now, mostly from conservative sources: things about currency markets and New World Order type stuff. I know the guy is Jewish, which probably also makes him a target to fit in such conspiracies.
I’ve also heard him bad-mouthed by liberal thinkers as well. Years ago when I took a macroeconomics class in college, the economist Professor had nothing but bad stuff to say about the guy and brought him up a lot. This Professor loved I believe it was the country of Thailand and taught economics classes there. This guy seemed to swing liberal but he basically said the guy was a dirt bag who destroyed the country’s economy when he artificially inflated the currency value in Thailand and then I guess cashed out and sunk the economy for years, he went off on many diatribes about the topic.
So do any conspiracy theories about the guy hold water, and that aside is he really a bad guy who fucks up entire countries for his own benefit or is this a mischaracterization?
