Her glittery line of makeup breaks the traditional makeup mold. Doe Deere truly believes it is alright if a girl just to want to have fun with her makeup. Wear bold colors. Mix and match those vibrant colors. Don’t be afraid to mix whimsical eye and lip colors. Jazz up your color palette. Try mixing and matching every color of the rainbow. Wear multiple shades. This method should be applied to hair, makeup, and clothes. Try it, you just might like the look. Deere is also a big pattern fan. She believes in turning up your fashion pattern meter.

George Soros Predicts The Second Global Slowdown To Match 2008

The legendary hedge fund manager George Soros has recently been explaining his thoughts on why he believes a second major global slowdown is waiting just around the corner. Soros was detailing the full extent of the problems the global economy is facing in an interview published by Bloomberg that took place at an economic forum in Sri Lanka attended by some of the world’s best known financial experts; Soros took the opportunity to explain just why he believes this is the wrong time for investors to seek new opportunities on global markets, according to Bloomberg.

George Soros places many of the problems being seen in Europe and around the world firmly on the shoulders of Russian premier Vladimir Putin and his desire to cling on to power in his country. 2017 should see the first major issues seen in Russia during the rule of Putin, which will include problems with the maturing of major debts built up over the last two decades, and lowered oil prices throughout the world. Soros has been vocal in his criticism of the Putin regime, which has led to his Open Society Foundations charity being banned from operating within the country for security reasons, CNBC reports. The view of Soros that Russia is driving the refugee crisis in Europe with its continued bombing of civilian targets in Syria has the power to bring down the entire European Union is shared by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and a growing band of financial and political experts around the world.

Russia is not the only area of the world to be experiencing major difficulties with its economy, which it would rather keep hidden. In the Bloomberg interview the issues facing the Chinese economy were discussed at great detail, including the changing face of one of the world’s most important economies; George Soros explained the Chinese economy has recently shifted from a manufacturing and investment base to one driven by the service industry and consumption. In the view of the man credited with causing the devaluation of the British Pound in 1992 Chinese economic officials have so far failed to handle the problems they face in the correct way; George Soros explained continuing to push more currency into the economy and lower interest rates would push the global economy to the brink of a 2008 style collapse.

George Soros predicts the 2008 economic meltdown is happening again

George Soros is the chairman and founder of the Open Society, and it form networks of partners, projects, and foundations in more than 100 countries. Soros commitment to the idea of an open society where the government is accountable, rights are respected, and believe that no one has the monopoly on the truths make the Open Society a unique philanthropic foundation. https://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/people/george-soros. He pointed out his success in financial markets give him a greater degree than most people, and this obliges him to take a stand on controversial issues, since often the affected population may not be able.

George Soros started his career in 1950, and he gained a reputation for his investment prowess in 1992 after netting $1billion with a bet that the U.K pound would be forced to be devalued. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-01-07/global-markets-at-the-beginning-of-a-crisis-george-soros-says. In addition, he has greatly helped in bringing accountability and transparency in natural resource extraction industries through international system. Over the past years, the practice of making secrets payoff to local tyrants in extraction industry fueled some of the most heinous violence and worst political unrest. https://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/people/george-soros

According to George Soros, the current economic environment is similar to that experienced in 2008. His prediction is that the 2008 financial meltdown is happening again. He has been quoted in The Economist saying that the current financial markets reflect and remind him of 2008. Soros believes China economy is having some serious problems, which are being transferred to rest of the world. He points out that even though many world news sources and China government say otherwise, concerning Chinese economy decline especially the manufacturing sector, China economy has problems. http://www.economist.com/blogs/buttonwood/2016/01/markets

The growth and geopolitics are major issues that make 2016 reflects 2008. The World Bank has already predicted 2.9% drop from 3.3% growth in 2016. Nevertheless, the crashing commodity prices indicate that we might be heading in the same position in 2016. http://www.economist.com/blogs/buttonwood/2016/01/markets

George Soros predictions have been welcomed around the world. Albert Edward, a strategist at the bank of Société Générale also concedes with Soros views. He stated that the Western countries are about to be hit by a wave of deflation from emerging market economies, yet the central banks are not aware. This can be reflected by turbulence in the market since the beginning of the year. http://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/jan/12/beware-great-2016-financial-crisis-warns-city-pessimist

As explained on Bloomberg Business http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-01-07/global-markets-at-the-beginning-of-a-crisis-george-soros-says the measure of volatility is surging since the start of the year. The Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index, commonly known as fear gauge has climbed 13 % up. The Nikkei Stock Average Volatility Index, which gives a cost of protection against Japanese shares, is about 43% up. Merrill Lynch index, which measures anticipation of price swing in Treasury bond, has already climbed 5.7%. It seems the stock markets are acting as if Soros is right.

Igor Cornelsen Shares his Investment Experience

Igor Cornelsen Shares his Investment Experience or Cornelsen is a stock market investor and banker. He has spent his entire career working in financial institutions and has developed a great deal of experience that has guided his career with great success. According to newsvine.com he is a product of Brazil and became one of the country’s top banker’s.

Mr. Cornelsen has developed valuable experience in the field of investing and he is always willing to share his expertise with interested investors.

Igor Cornelsen looks at investing as a long term consideration and without commitment to the long term, success will be fleeting. His goal is to generate profits that last a lifetime using strategies that work for the long term rather than trying to make a quick buck in the short term. While the short term strategy will work for some of the investors some of the time it also brings with it greater risk and minimized success for the long term. Investors should also keep in mind investing is a process that takes time in order to maximize success. Mr. Cornelsen recommends investor look at investing as a career move rather than something to do when there is nothing better to do.

One of Mr. Cornelsen’s best strategies is to make small investments rather than one large one. By making many investments rather than committing to one particular investment, the risk is minimized as it is spread over a wider field. This strategy also improves the chances of some or hopefully most investments are successful.

Another strategy is to research investments thoroughly and choose companies and entities that have a proven track and successful return record. Investing in the hot new and unproven product raises the risk considerably and does not necessarily indicate long term success. It is advisable to stay away from damaged companies and products as the chance of them being successful are greatly minimized. He also cautions a stock price might fall because of a temporary problem and not because a long term or chronic problem. A stock that experiences a dip in price always has the chance to recover and be successful, but it takes an experienced eye and some level of investing experience to determine the difference.
