There is a major migration crisis in Europe which if not well addressed will cause more damage and compromise the unity of the countries under European Union. This crisis is a major humanitarian crisis as the migrants are desperate for asylum. The flaws of the Asylum Policy Recent negotiations between European Union and Turkey led to the formulation of an asylum policy. The policy however is full of flaws that are detrimental to the survival of the refugees. On examination of the policy, George Soros found some flaws. The policy is not exactly European as it was made in Turkey. It also lacks funding and refugees are forced to stay in places they do not prefer. George Soros’ Opinion on the Right Course for EU Asylum System George Soros explained various actions that EU should take to help rectify the humanitarian catastrophe in Greece. His very worthy advice was published in The New York Review of Books. One of the actions that EU should take is to dedicate large amounts of funds to address the crisis. This fund on will help reduce the anti-immigrant sentiment in some countries and help the refugees get settled in countries of preference. Ideally the countries that contain the refugees and the refugees themselves are entitled to financial support so that they can be able to cater for the basic needs. A good amount of fund will help Europe regulate the number of refugees getting in Europe. George Soros proposed the number of arrivals to be 300,000 to 500,000 in a year. This number will enable the refugees to be assured of settlement in Europe and allow the governments to accommodate them comfortably. George Soros estimated that at least $34 billion (30 billion Euros) will be needed per year. This money will be able to fund all the frontline countries with large refugee population, create a common asylum agency and enhance security in the EU external borders. The amount of this money when compared to the risk of not containing the refugee crisis seems an insignificant amount. The biggest threat of this crisis on is the collapse of the Schengen system. This collapse has been valued to cause losses of about 100 billion Euros annually by the French Commissioner for Policy Planning. Ways of Raising the Capital EU is capable of raising the amount needed to save the crisis. What it is lacking is the political capacity. Imposing new tax revenues is the easiest solution but it will obviously get objections. The best way to introduce the tax is through introduction of new legislation. A better alternative will be to reopen the European Commission’s Multiannual Financial Frame work. It will offer an opportunity to increase VAT. EU’s triple-A credit can be employed to get funds too. They could also use financial entities like EFSM and ESM. George Soros George is a world renowned philanthropist and investor. He is the founder and chairman of Open Society Foundations and Soros Fund Management. He is a well known author and has published several important articles. He is among the top listed rich persons in the world. He has made various successful investments. The Open Society is established in more than 100 countries where it supports a number of projects.

Two things have mainly driven consumption of coffee: pursuit for class and avoiding a headache out of addiction. Medicinal herb on the other hand have been known mostly for the unpleasant bitter experience. One takes herbs that are bitter than the pan being relieved. Organo Gold is however re-inventing coffee for what it is known and blending it with the herbal power. Thanks to Organo Gold, Coffee is the trendy herb in town! With the coffee, one continues to enjoy the distinct taste of coffee and continues to get healthier.

It has taken the Organo Gold years of perfection to arrive at a product that does not only offer pleasure but is quickly becoming a compulsory companion. And further to its discovery, there is a whole range of flavours to suit consumer’s tastes. The secret is in infusing a 4000-year-old magical Chinese herb called Ganoderma Lucidum. The powerful herb boosts the body health by enabling the body function as it should.

Organo Gold has marked health intervention in a number of ailments including Diabetes, Asthma, High blood pressure, Liver dysfunction, Kidney dysfunction and high cholesterol.

The successes of Organo Gold can be attributed to its effective leadership of Bernardo Chua. Bernardo founded Organo Gold in 2008. At the time of its founding, Bernardo’s vision was to engage in selling a range of healthy bioactive coffee products containing Ganoderma Lucidum. Multi-level marketing was the method of choice for distribution of the product on a wholesale basis. This would then see the product being offered to coffee lovers for a set retail price.

Bernie, as he is commonly known on Twitter, is among the top names in the direct sales industry. This marketing method ensures that products are actually delivered to the final consumer and feedback taken.

His current successes did not come without challenges. In fact, Bernardo Chua’s commitment to the brand is the reason that they’ve become such an award winning endeavor.

There has been a population switch going on in Brazil for last three decades. Forty years ago, Brazilians like to settle in rural areas, but that changed as new regulations and economic growth propelled Brazil into the elite emerging market category. Today, almost 75 percent of Brazil’s population live in a city or near a city, according to BMG Bank Vice-President Marcio Alaor. That internal migration has presented several social challenges for cities of all sizes.

Marcio Alaor recently spoke about the Endeavor Index and how the internal migration is impacting businesses in his country. According to the Endeavor Index, there are 32 cities in Brazil that are prime candidates for foreign investment. Alaor thinks investors will return to those cities within the next 18 months. The five top cities on the Endeavor list are São Paulo, Campinas, Victory, Recife, and Florianopolis. Florianopolis is second on the list, and São Paulo takes the first spot since the city is the top capital investment city in the country.

Alaor told the group that his bank, the BMG Bank, recently moved its headquarters to São Paulo because of the amount of business opportunities in and around the city. Even though there are business opportunities in the cities on the Endeavor list, there are also challenges like an increase in favela communities and more crime. São Paulo deals with favela communities in several ways, but more pop up as the population increases. There are more than 10 million people living in São Paulo.

But the other four cities that represent the top five business cities are not as congested as São Paulo. Alaor said city governments have built a solid infrastructure to support foreign investment, and the location of those cities make it easier for investors to travel to the other major business cities. Alaor knows a lot about the cities that are breaking out of the recessionary mode by developing new technologies that are giving the economy a boost. BMG Bank and Marcio Alaor have played a role in the economic expansion by lending money to businesses when other banks turned them down. Alaor has single-handedly organized banking deals that have helped companies expand in spite of the recession and the brutal inflation.

Marcio is dedicated to improving Brazil’s position in the emerging market category, and if his track record is any indication of what he can do, he will help cities around the country follow the lead of the cities on the Endeavor list.

Like all countries that experience a devastating recession, Brazil is trying to dig out from under the negative press, and accent the positive aspects of the country. The Endeavor Index, created by the Endeavor organization, is helping entrepreneurs succeed, and so is Marcio Alaor.
