Many people around the world follow the markets very closely. They often do so for many varied reasons. Some people follow the markets because they are curious about how a given stock is doing. Another person may follow the stock market because they have invested heavily in stocks and want to make sure their stocks are doing well. Some people follow the markets for such reasons but also because they have been able to make a living in the financial sector. The financial sector of the worldwide economy is one of the world’s most important sectors. One such person is one of the world’s richest men and a high respected prognosticator about all issues that pertain to the stock market in any way.
Soros has long been a close observer on Bloomberg of the stock market. In his role as one of the world’s most respected stock market experts, he has often spoken out about the ways in which the world’s markets can change easily. During this time, he also spoken out about his thoughts on the possibility of a bull market or a bear market. Many people who have chosen to listen to him have found his insights extremely useful as they have tried to make sense of market conditions on their own. They know that it is imperative to listen to people like him to fully understand all such possibilities.
He recently spoke an economic summit in the nation of Sri Lanka. His thoughts were recorded on Bloomberg Television where many have viewed his speech. George Soros knows that is is important to think about the market on a yearly basis and to look ahead carefully. In his view, the current state of the markets are very much like they were eight years ago. During that time, there was a great deal of turmoil and many problems as a result of multiple factors including issues of confidence in the markets.
As he told his audience, today there are many similar issues including the possibility of problems in China. China is one of the world’s largest markets with an estimated population of over one billion people. He talked about how the leadership of China today is not entirely sure how to handle the issue that they face with the entrance of people into the workforce and the resulting increase in the amount of money they are earning. This has been an issue that has largely been dealt with in the past via policies that have encouraged savings rather than any kind of spending at all. He believes that Chinese leaders today are not sure how to cope with the desire of many Chinese people to spend their money rather than to save.
