The following short article is for those regular readers who have been wondering why I haven't yet published anything about the disturbing appearance of George Soros in the chapter of 'MLM/Income Opportunity' tragicomedy, entitled: 'Herbalife (HLF)?'
|Ironically, George Soros has been presented as a 'messianic billionaire' (Messiah - 'the liberator, or would-be liberator, of an oppressed people').|
At the beginning of August 2013, it was reported that the Soros Hedge Fund had bought a large stake in 'Herbalife,' causing shares in the counterfeit 'direct selling' company immediately to jump 9%; for it was also implied that the messianic billionaire, George Soros, had personally been responsible for making this trade.
|George Soros Bill Ackman|
The temporary re-inflation of the market price of 'Herbalife' shares, meant that (on paper) Bill Ackman was around $300 millions down on his $1.2 billion short-selling bet that 'Herbalife' is a fake enterprise which will soon be closed down, whilst (again on paper) Carl Icahn and the Soros Hedge Fund, were hundreds of millions of dollars up on their own long bet against Bill Ackman's short position.
