George Soros has always worked in the career of finance and currency. Working in banks, working in arbitrage [taking advantage of price differences in two places to make profit], and finally becoming a hedge fund manager in 1969 with the creation of "Soros Fund Management". That organization is still around to this day actually! Soros Fund Management is the primary adviser for the Quantum Group of Funds; a family of funds dealing in international investments. What kinds of international investments? Black Wednesday, when George Soros shorted the UK Pound and made a billion dollars. The 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, where he and some other hedge funds led to the collapse of the economy of Thailand. And in 1988 - Soros learned that insider trading was going on in France but did not alert the authorities; his defense being that he thought it was common knowledge!
As of 2018 the net worth of George Soros in $25,200,000,000 or Twenty-Five Point Two BILLION dollars. As he's grown older he's putting more of his money into his "Open Society Foundation" which donates MILLIONS to local elections to advocate for far left policies like weakening law enforcement [likely to push a policy of a national police state][Because Soros is on record saying he wants a federal police force]. People on the left call this interference "Philanthropy" - people on the Right, call it a billionaire shaping politics for his own twisted desires. What do you think? Comment down below!
