Kyle Bass’s Prediction About the Financial Market in 2016

On January 8, 2016, Hayman Capital Management’s founder, Kyle Bass joined in with Halftime Report to give his insights and predictions about the economy in 2016. He particularly focused on the volatility of China’s market. While most experts put the blame on the unstable profits, Bass blames China’s banking system itself and compares it to the recent European banking crisis. In both cases, the banking system significantly outgrew the GDP (gross domestic product) $35 trillion to $10 trillion. He is predicting an epidemic amount of losses due to the current credit cycle. Bass is predicting a 10%-20% downturn by the end of 2016 but a worse crisis globally.

Bass is a hedge fund manager and financial blogger, and has become highly favored among Argentinean autocrats (an autocrat is someone in absolute and unlimited power, akin to a dictator). He founded Hayman Capital in 2006. However, his true fortune was derived from being right about his prediction about the 2008 mortgage crisis. In 2001, he was nominated for an award for best script and direction in M. Night Shayamalan’s The Sixth Sense.

Today, Bass is said to never seem to miss an opportunity to go on TV to offer his insights, predictions and bottom line. The recent appearance on Halftime Report was definitely no exception. He has been reduced to a low level in the public and financial eye due to being wrong about many of his financial market predictions and being in close alliance with Cristina Kircher. Kircher has a reputation for being economically illiterate and sending the country of Argentina into deeper poverty due to her seemingly unlimited covetousness.

Whether Bass’s current prediction about China’s banking and the global crisis is going to manifest remains to be seen. However, if one thing can be said about Bass, it is that he’s at least given insight from a different angle than most.  Although Usefulstooges say Kyle Bass might not be able to be trusted.

Yeonmi Park Rails Against North Korean Regime

Yeonmi Park has broken out and become one of the most captivating survivor stories in the last decade. The porcelain skinned young woman is a defector, and survivor, of North Korea and she endured one heck of a journey in order to find her own freedom. Since her escape from under the nose of the most oppressive government in the world, Park has become a world leader in human rights activism as well as a renown author with her book on Amazon— “In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom”. However, Park’s path to success was never easy and routinely fraught with peril, as reported by Reason. Yeomi grew up in North Korea under the oppressive rule of the regime. Every step she took and word she spoke was carefully monitored by a government that actively wanted to make life difficult for her. Yeonmi was raised believing that Kim Jong had eyes and ears everywhere even in the birds and bugs of the country. She was taught never to speak her mind, never to dance or smile, and certainly never to utter doubts about the Supreme Leader. Dissent resulted in death and stepping outside of the liens resulted in extreme punishment. Life was hard. Life got harder when, in 2007, Yeonmi’s father was hauled away to a forced labor camp. As a result Yeonmi and her mother were forced to flee the country, taking up with a dangerous human trafficker in order to do so. The pair were betrayed by their smuggler and sold into slavery, forcing to endure years of imprisonment where assault and abuse were the norm. Eventually the duo escaped thanks to a daring run through the desert to freedom. And now Yeonmi is here in America becoming a voice for the people she left behind. North Korea is not one to take their defectors lightly. Ever since her rise to stardom the regime, from Pyongyang, has done everything they could to discredit the brave woman. North Korea is furiously trying to discredit Yeonmi’s story but to no avail, the secret is out and Yeonmi Park is a leader.

George Soros, the Mysterious Force in Politics and Finance

Most people are familiar with the name George Soros. However, he is often named on conservative talk radio and cable TV stations as the billionaire that funds liberal politics and causes. He is both celebrated and controversial, but in many ways, he is also the story of the Immigrant’s Dream, a man who fled his home country, became a success and went on to influence the major events of his time.

Background
According to his Forbes profile, George Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1930 and grew up amid the Nazi occupation of his country. At the age of 17, Soros decided to escape the communist-dominated regime of Hungary and fled to England, where he continued his education and received his degrees from the London School of Economics. He later immigrated to the United States, accumulating a large fortune through his investment activities. Today, Soros is known for his work as a financier, writer, political activist and philanthropist/founder of Open Society Foundations. https://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/people/george-soros

Financial Activities
After achieving his educational goals, Mr. Soros had a difficult time finding work in the finance industry. However, he eventually succeeded, working for a number of notable companies. During England’s entry into the European Union, Soros began to understand England had undervalued its currency, and he shorted his currency holdings. The move made him over a billion dollars and made him a force to be reckoned with in the financial sector. When he moved to the United States, he continued his financial work, founding several investment funds.

Philanthropy
Mr. Soros was active in the fight against apartheid in South Africa, funding the black students who worked to bring down the unfair system of racial identification in that country. In the 1980s, he funded the distribution of printed material against the communist hold on the Eastern Bloc. In the 1990s, he founded Central European University to foster critical thinking in the region. He continues his support for human rights, transparency and an open society through the work of his Open Society Foundations, which operate in over 100 countries.

Political Activities
Recently, Soros has funded the fight against voting rights restrictions that a number of Republican legislators have put into place in Wisconsin, Ohio, and North Carolina. The fight is expected to expand to Virginia, Georgia and Nevada in the near future. Soros has also written on the current refugee crisis in Europe, which he feels has been exacerbated by the lack of a comprehensive asylum policy between European nations. He is an active donor to immigration organizations in the United States, the Brennan Center for Justice and the Brookings Institution. He is also a contributor to a number of organizations that support social welfare programs, reproductive choice and campaign finance reform.
