The California drought was especially unkind to Southern California. Residents of Los Angeles, San Diego and the counties in between those cities had to change their lifestyle in order to comply with mandatory water rationing program that Governor Jerry Brown put in place.

Northern California was also hit hard by the drought. The fruit and vegetable farmers lost millions of dollars in 2015 because their crops didn’t have enough water. Consumers around the country felt the impact of the drought at the grocery store. Everyone paid high prices for the fruit and vegetables that were harvested in 2015.

But the one industry that should have been devastated by the drought, the ski industry, wasn’t, or least ski resort managers are keeping tight-lipped about their actual losses in 2015. It is a fact that many ski resorts closed early in 2015.

There wasn’t enough snow on the popular slopes, and the ski resorts weren’t equipped to make enough fake snow to compensate for the shortfall. But not all ski resorts were hampered by the four-year drought. The CEO of Squaw Valley, Andy Wirth, was interviewed on the KCRW radio show, Press Play with Madeline Brand.

Wirth told Brand that Squaw Valley in uniquely positioned in the ski resort industry thanks to 70 years of frugal management by the Cushing family. Nancy Cushing turned the CEO position over to Wirth in 2010 right before the resort started their $70 million renovation plan.

With told Brand that Squaw Valley’s 2015 ski season wasn’t great, but revenues were only off by 20 percent from the year before. But 2014 wasn’t that great either so the truth is, as Wirth pointed out, that ski resorts have suffered because of the drought, but most of them will survive.

Brand continued to ask Wirth questions about ski resort survival during the drought years, and it was obvious that Wirth was well prepared when it came to answering those questions. Squaw Valley is one of the best ski resorts in the world, and Wirth is considered one of the top CEOs in the business.

Andy Wirth knows a lot about the ski resort business. He spent 20 years at the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporation, and he held several high-level positions with that company before accepting the CEO position with Squaw Valley.

Wirth is a respected graduate from Colorado State University and a major contributor to the Lake Tahoe Community. Squaw Valley and the other ski resorts made a roaring comeback in 2016. Snowfall was constant and plentiful so maybe the worst years of the drought are over, but not everyone is convinced of that. The weather people are not sure what will happen when the 2017 season rolls around.

GEORGE SOROS IS BACK!

July 19, 2016
GEORGE SOROS IS BACK!

George Soros is at it again. The multi-billionaire, philanthropist and political activist recently made a series of bearish investments that saw him through Soros Fund Management LLC, sell some of his stocks and even swap others. George Soros also went on and acquired gold and shares of gold miners. Soros Fund Management LLC is the firm that manages 30 billion dollars for Soros and his family.

The move was significantly influenced by the worrying outlook of the global economy and the queer trend of shifting of large markets. Although, trades like these are done every day on Wall Street, this one raised a few eyebrows. One of the reasons for this, is that George Soros who had retired from active trading in the eighties and who maintained a 30% return on investments during his days had made a comeback to stock trading. George Soros gained international notoriety in the 90s when he risked ten billion dollars on a single currency speculation and shorted the British pound. This risk bore fruit and he made profits to the tune of two billion dollars. This transaction earned him the title ‘the man who broke the Bank of England.

Cramer: Investing like George Soros will never make you rich

In the recent years, the 85-year-old billionaire has been occupied by matters that revolve around public policy and also philanthropy. He is also a huge supporter of the presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton and he has shown this by the money he contributes to super PAC. The bus does not stop here though, he has also shown his support to other democrats and has contributed to their respective campaigns. Even though Soros left active trading, he has occasionally stepped in and interrupted the funds operations especially when the firm suffered losses; This is according to senior executives within the institution. Normally, his interruptions would mean that some of the staffers responsible for the poor performance would be let go.

However, in the last five years, Soros had not done much investing on his own. The situation changed earlier this year when Soros started spending a lot more time in the office. This could be partly because his top investor left the fund to go open his own venture. Despite his old age, Soros seems to be determined to take advantage of the loop hole that he has seen and no one else seems to be noticing. Could this be another big one by the legendary George Soros? George Soros has proven so many times before that he is an exemplary trader so let’s just wait and see.

George Soros’ Ideas On How To Save Ukraine And Europe

George Soros is a Hungarian-American investor, author, business magnate, and philanthropist. He has citizenship of both U.S. and Hungary. George was born on August 12, 1930. Apart from owning numerous businesses across the globe, George Soros Ukraine is the Chairman of Soros Fund Management and helped found the Open Society Foundation. After years of successful business deals, he has been able to rise to the top 30 wealthiest persons around the globe.

The wealthy businessman has written several articles on the current crisis in Ukraine. One of these articles, ‘Ukraine & Europe: What Should be Done?’ stands out. In the article, Soros looks at the various things that Europe could do to save the already failing systems in Ukraine.

He argues that although the European Union has become the master of muddling in crises in member states, the crises have been caused by the numerous structural defects of the Union. Soros compares this to kicking a can uphill. Every time the can is kicked, it keeps coming back. For example, when the Union solves a financial problem in Greece, it creates more problems both in the union and in Greece as a country. Currently, the union faces at least five crises: Greece, the euro, British referendum, migration, and the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. What is bad is that the crises are reinforcing each other, thus making them harder and more complicated to tackle.

The Greatest Investors: George Soros

A New Policy to Rescue Ukraine

Soros suggests that the crises should be solved in their order of priority. To this end, Soros believes that the Ukraine crisis should be given priority. However, he does not mean that the other four crises should be neglected. George Soros views the new Ukraine as a country determined to grow and establish itself as the opposite of the old Ukraine. Like the old Greece, the old Ukraine was hard to reform due to an oligarch-dominated economy and the greed of the political class that led to misuse of positions. In contrast, the new Ukraine, which was inspired by the 2014 revolution, has the sole objective of reforming the country.

In the pro-European protests, a new Ukraine was born after President Viktor F. Yanukovych was driven from power. Even when under the Russian military assault, the spirit for change among Ukrainians is ever stronger. Levy and Soros posits that Maidan supporters have moved from opposition and are now fully immersed in nation building. Most individuals have left their well-paying jobs to volunteer in parliament and government. The new finance minister, Natalie Jaresko, was a former investment banker. It is proper to note that many people do not know the secrets of the new Ukraine. Radical reforms have been put in place. The only remaining part is implementation of the same.

The Russian President continues to step up financial and military pressure on Ukraine. Even though the country is defending itself militarily, it necessitates financial assistance. There is the need for western powers to make political commitments towards availing additional funds, enhancing Ukraine’s reforms and suppressing Russian assaults. The reformers are working on ensuring that they avoid leakages that were common in the old Ukraine. They have also told the populace to hold them accountable for all the expenditures.

George Soros Thoughts on What the European Union Should Do to Ukraine

George Soros Ukraine have noted that a great deal of European voters have expressed their dissatisfaction with the European Union referring to the poor turn-out of voters in a European Parliamentary election a few years ago. This is in contrast to the great desire by the Ukrainian people to support the EU society, something that EU leaders and citizens should interpret and figure out it means.

The European Union was initially established to be an association that brings together the sovereign states who were willing to gradually share their sovereignty for a common significant good. However, with the advent of the 1991 ‘Central Europe Crisis’, the EU was transformed and restructured into a radically different society where debtors and creditors imposed conditions to maintain their dominance.

Russia in particular is turning out to be a dangerous enemy and rival to the EU and is willing to use force to reveal its global geopolitical ambitions. Putin is exploiting the country ethnic ideology to strengthen his regime seeking an alliance with China in an effort to weaken America’s global dominance. His self-inflicted regime is getting in the way of Russia strategic interest of benefiting more from collaboration with the EU. Putin use of violence in Kyiv’s Maidan have resulted to the birth of a ‘new Ukraine’ that is focused to be part of EU and not Russia Empire.

Europe’s Ukrainian Lifeline

George Soros – Forbes

The success of new Ukraine is however under threat from Putin who would do anything to destabilize the country. But with Ukraine turning to EU for strategic help, Putin plan may not necessarily work. The first thing that EU ought to do offset Putin’s efforts of disorganizing the new Ukraine is to offer unrestricted political risk insurance to whoever is doing business with Ukraine or investing in the country. This would keep the country economy running in spite of the political crisis as well as assure Ukrainians that U.S. and EU are committed to them. Businesses would flock to the freshly opened and favorable markets of Ukraine if investors were assured of full compensation for any of their losses caused by political crashes.

George Soros Ukraine believes that EU can also guarantee the losses by funding the World Bank where every government provides an uncertain pro-rata capital infusion, pledging the rest in form of callable capital available if and when the losses are essentially paid out. This is reported in Project Syndicate.

If the European Union act swiftly and promptly, the Ukraine scenario will be forgotten within a couple years as if it never happened. As long the rich natural resources of the country are still lying idle, it will make sense to support Ukraine from the fiscal compact investment that would finally pay for themselves. And if such reforms marks the beginning of a growth policy that the European Union so badly requires, then saving Ukraine would be like saving the rest of Europe. The same society that existed 20 years ago will be restored to bolster the success of its sovereign state politically, economically and socially.
