In Episode 3, dedicated to George Soros, we look at the relationship between agents and agenda. We will also discuss the conflict between open societies and capitalism. 


What will you learn in the new podcast?

Honesty and integrity

They are losing their power in competition with money. People's values can be changed. If we assume that all human activity is driven only by the vision of profit, then we have to take any moral decisions out of the equation. Society, however, cannot function without basic ethical settings. 

♂️ Markets without values

Market values are quite different from those that guide the individuals who represent members of the community. According to Soros, people confuse capitalism with market ethics. Markets are value-laden whereas society cannot exist without it.

A dollar is a dollar

According to Soros, the conflict between open society and capitalism is deep-rooted. A dollar is a dollar. It doesn't matter where it came from or who it belongs to. That is why markets are so efficient. 

Decline coupled with admiration

One of the signs of decline, according to Soros, is an overt culture of prioritising the self-interest of the individual, and at the same time an exaggerated admiration for successful people. Often regardless of how they achieved their success. 

⚖️ Market values

become the values of society. However, this is not the result of reason and good honest logical thinking, but of coercion and manipulation by interest groups. The interests that most overlap with the goals of the wealthiest strata of society often receive the most financial and promotional support and therefore the most attention. 


In the podcasts, we cover money, productivity, investing, as well as living a fulfilled and abundant life. Sources of information are world-famous books, videos, biographies, quotes from successful personalities, as well as real interviews with successful investors, entrepreneurs and inspirational peoplewho are achieving remarkable results. 

We are interested in how these people think about money, what habits influence their daily lives, what they attribute their success to, but also what their biggest failures in life have been. We select only the best for you, and together we'll take a peek into the secrets of how to live a more successful, wealthy and productive life.

NBS. On the basis of Regulation (EU) 2020/1503 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 7 October 2020 on European crowdfunding service providers for business and amending Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 and Directive (EU) 2019/1937 (the "Regulation on European crowdfunding service providers for business"), crowdfunding will become a legally regulated activity.
