Probably less to this than it appears. This put is four years old by now, and as a percentage of Soros’s total holdings, it’s actually fallen from last year.
I wouldn’t jump out the window yet. Soros knows that hot-air bubbles eventually cool and deflate, and he’s doing what any good prepper would – preparing for the worst. Although I doubt he’s actually hoping for the best. He’s a vulture, and makes his money off the worst in all its forms – especially if he can create them himself.
