Agora Financial: The Real Psychics of Economics07.30.17

There are basically two ways you can find out about the value of something. One is to sit in the office and use the internet or go to a library to do your research. The other is to actually go to where it is that you are doing research on. The second approach is not exactly a common method, especially among investors. They are more likely to do research on a commodity from the comfort of their office. The fact is, it is not possible to get a total picture on anything by going with this method. For those who are trying to find methods to make their retirement financially secure, it is important to go with someone who is serious about finding real value.
For example, take the case of gold. In the late 1990’s gold was selling for approximately $256 per ounce. By the mid-2000’s it reached nearly $1800 per ounce. For those people who predicted this rise, it was indeed a golden harvest. The good news is that all this and more is possible for any investor who uses the help of the right company, such as Agora Financial.
Agora Financial is a publication based in Baltimore, Maryland. What sets them apart from other financial journals including online and television based, is that they operate without the influence of any corporation. They will not allow to be influenced by what other companies want them to report. It is this unbiased stance by Agora Financial that makes them a solid leader in their field. Even other news sources such as the Wall Street Journal, CNBC and the Economist refer to Agora for unique insights on market forecast. Agora has a group of people working for them which is virtually a who’s who in the investment, mining, scientific and literary world.

George Soros and his impact with the Open Society Foundations07.21.17

There are very few billionaires in the world. In fact the majority of them will fit on a single list you could read in a sitting. George Soros is one of those billionaires and he is also one of the most giving philanthropists that the world has ever seen. Soros has worked for decades on creating a better world through his charity, the Open Society Foundations. The work he has done far and wide has made a direct impact on communities in more than 130 different countries, including the United States. Let’s break down how George Soros became the man he is today and how the Open Society Foundations made a direct impact on United States civil rights movement.

George Soros is a Hungarian born Jew who was a teenager when the Nazis rolled into town and occupied Hungary. From 1944 to 1945 over 500,000 Hungarian Jews would end up murdered in cold blood by the oppressive regime. During this time of mayhem, violence and despair George Soros and his family would stand up to actually fight back in their own way. Soros and his family helped to create fake documents in order to sneak Jews out of the country before eventually doing so themselves. Soros says of the time, “Instead of submitting to our fate, we resisted an evil force that was much stronger than we were.” This amazing story could stand alone, but it doesn’t end there.

Eventually Soros would flee from Budapest to London where he would begin studying at the London School of Economics. Working two different jobs Soros would be able to graduate awhile honing his studies and the philosophy that would go on to inform his later decisions in both business and philanthropy. George Soros would leave London for America before landing in the USA in 1956. Soros would soon start the Soros Hedge Fund and make his fortune, leading to the creation of the Open Society Foundations. Read his profile at Business Insider.

The Ferguson Protests in Missouri were sparked over the shooting of an unarmed black suspect named Michael Brown by a white police officer, Darren Wilson. The protests were just the final straw on what had been an increasingly tragic problem: racial profiling and police brutality. These protests captured the attention of the nation and soon everyone was talking about racial equality throughout the United States in terms of how police treat minority suspects.

The reason that George Soros is attached to the protests in Ferguson is simple: the Open Society Foundations believes in funding grassroots activists. Throughout the year leading up to the infamous shooting, Soros and the open Society Foundations would donate nearly $33 million to activists in the area. Soros believes that activism is the key component to participation in government. Learn more on about George Soros.

When Equities First gives a loan to a customer, they will able to take a lien on the investment portfolio. In the event that the loan goes into default, Equities First will be able to liquidate the stock portfolio.

Others will use the loans to liquidate the stock without actually selling it, which can have big tax and investment management benefits.

Equities First was initially only focused in the United States, but the company has grown a lot in the past few years.

Talos Energy Successful in Historic Offshore Oil Discovery07.15.17

For the first time ever, a successful offshore well was drilled by Mexico’s private sector. Talos Energy LLC and its two partners Sierra ad Premier struck oil in an offshore well in late May of this year prompting praise from all in the oil and gas sector. Tim Duncan, the President and CEO of Talos Energy calls this feat both “historic” and “significant” and went on to praise the cooperation of both the United States and Mexico. Duncan also notes that projects like this are exactly the kind of results the industry was hoping to see come out of recent energy reforms inspiring the innovation necessary to make this landmark event possible. These energy reforms have sent optimism soaring in the oil and gas industries due to their incentive for the private sector to join both the exploration and acquisition markets in the US and Mexico. Going forward Talos and its partners will be drilling down over 14,000 feet in order to complete further testing on the surrounding offshore reservoirs. To ensure environmental safety, Talos has put a liner in place to protect both the discovered oil reservoirs and the surrounding aquatic life. Two contracts for production sharing have been carried out to partner with Mexico’s upstream oil and gas regulator, the National Hydrocarbon Commission. This discovery has reaffirmed the hypothesis that over 162,000 gross acres in this area off the coast of Mexico is rich with oil. It is thought that this is just a drop in the bucket for Talos Energy from the previously untapped area of oil recovery.
