George Soros betting big on Indian market


George Soros : "It is not only China, India is doing very well and in fact, the great hope is that the developing world develops faster and that is the positive side of the current situation that the Chinese public is willing to accept limitations on individual freedom for the benefit of prosperity. But I do not see the rest of the world accepting limitations on each individual freedom for the benefit of Chinese prosperity. The Indian situation is more stable because it is based on domestic growth whereas China has yet to get domestic growth going. So right now, India is in a very strong position. There is some threat of inflation which remains on the horizon.

If I had to sum it up in one word, I would say blah. In other words, it may slip into the double dip or it may not, but it is going to slow down. There is no question in my mind because the stimulus is running out and there is now great resistance for any further stimulus because the preoccupation is with fiscal rectitude and it is a little bit too early for that because the economy has not yet really got dynamic scoring and it would not for a long time because there are grave imbalances that have built up over 25 years of super bubble and it will take time to work it off. "

George Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1930. His father was taken prisoner during World War I and eventually fled from captivity in Russia to reunite with his family in Budapest. Soros was thirteen years old when Hitler's Wehrmacht seized Hungary and began deporting the country's Jews to extermination camps. In 1946, as the Soviet Union was taking control of the country, Soros attended a conference in the West and defected. He emigrated in 1947 to England, supported himself by working as a railroad porter and a restaurant waiter, graduated in 1952 from the London School of Economics, and obtained an entry-level position with an investment bank.

In 1956, Soros immigrated to the United States, working as a trader and analyst until 1963. During that time, he developed his own theory of markets called 'reflexivity', which he has laid out in his recent books THE ALCHEMY OF FINANCE and THE CREDIT CRISIS OF 2008 AND WHAT IT MEANS. In 1967 he helped establish an offshore investment fund; and in 1973 he set up a private investment firm that eventually evolved into the Quantum Fund, one of the first hedge funds, through which he accumulated a vast fortune.
