George Soros Betting & Hedging that America Will Fail


George Soros, no friend of the United States economy.

George Soros has been betting, hoping and hedging that the American economy would fail for quite some time. Mr. Move and Democratic backer is in gleeful mode as he drools over his comments that US economic recovery is far off and banks are basically insolvent.

The U.S. economy is in for a “lasting slowdown” and could face a Japan-style period of relatively low growth coupled with high inflation, billionaire investor George Soros said on Monday.

Soros, speaking to Reuters Financial Television, also warned that rescuing U.S. banks could turn them into “zombies” that draw the lifeblood of the economy, prolonging the economic slowdown.

What does Soros ultimately dream of, the $US being replaced as a world reserve currency.

Soros also said the U.S. dollar is under selling pressure and may eventually be replaced as a world reserve currency, possibly by the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights, a synthetic currency basket comprised of dollars, euros, yen and sterling.

      Smacks of cornering the short market by
      influencing the desired outcome via
      manipulation of politicians, no? Anyway,
      being on the winning side of market change
      does make money for those who have
      advance indications.

      Please pass the loaded dice, thanks!

      doubt this, due to the international business he has.
      SM: Sorry Keebler … not when one has a track history of shorting currencies and making money when things fail.

      You don’t get it do you?

      The people have hope in their hearts…

      Not for the love of money.

      But in knowing their protected.

      They will always have what they need.


      The Passover is at sunset on Thursday.

      For me, everyday is Christmas…

      and I celebrate only One as He commanded.

      I’ve come to pray for His kingdom to come.

      I close my eyes and beg the suffering

      to end.

      And, thank God for every day

      for it is because of his mercy

      that I am, even, alive.
