Meeting George Soros

The Guardian Finance 3 weeks ago

George Soros has spent billions of pounds promoting democracy around the world, with a specific interest in Hungary, his country of birth. But he has also become a controversial figure in the UK by funding an explicitly anti-Brexit group.

The Guardian’s central and eastern Europe correspondent, Shaun Walker, recently interviewed Soros at his New York residence and tells Anushka Asthana how he rose to such prominence – and how he deals with his many enemies.
