No I understood. Your knowledge of currency trading is what's lacking.

Anyone can be a currency trader. And the fortunes they reap aren't at others losses.

If you didn`t understand it the first time, a second attempt would be useless.

Old Ollie, Anyone can be a currency trader. And the fortunes they reap aren't at others losses. The Euro was introduced in 1999. I bought $10,000 worth at $0.85. In 2003 when I sold my Euros they were trading at $1.35. I made 5Gs. Probably not the best description of currency trading but anyone can do it and they don`t need a special education to understand how it`s done.

Yeah I know. The Koch brothers are the new Enron. Your party should be proud.

George Soros is a currency trader. Currency trading is benign.

It may be "benign," but it's also a zero-sum game. Every penny he ever made was someone else`s loss. He has never actually created anything of value in his life.

The Koch brothers, on the other hand, actually create wealth. According to Wikipedia, "...their companies are involved in core industries such as the manufacturing, refining and distribution of petroleum, chemicals, energy, fiber, intermediates and polymers, minerals, fertilizers, pulp and paper, chemical technology equipment, ranching, finance, commodities trading, as well as other ventures and investments. The firm employs 50,000 people in the United States and another 20,000 in 59 other countries." In other words, they actually produce products and services that increase the wealth of society in general, not just enrich themselves at others` expense as Soros does.

Just listen to Tim Phillips, what a shill - "Here in America, we give you opportunity to fulfill your dreams..." You? Give to me? The phrasing of that statement clearly puts him and his organization in a position of power, demoting all others who are not sided with him and his.
