George Soros likes to talk about rules but fails to obey them

Strange phenomena have taken place around the Hungarian forint recently, as the value of the currency has decreased in a scale that did not reflect the state of the economy. According to Hungarian analysts, the attack of American stock market speculator George Soros may be in the background. Although short-term financial operations have been tightened due to the coronavirus pandemic, Soros is unlikely to be interested in that. While he likes to talk about the importance of rules, practice shows that these are just empty words.

George Soros’s attack may be behind depreciation of forint

According to Hungarian experts, the American stock market speculator is consciously trying to weaken the Hungarian currency. In 1992, it was the British pound, while in 1997, the exchange rates of East Asian countries collapsed due to Soros’s attacks. It is suspected that this time the billionaire not only wants to make a profit from devaluing the forint, but is also motivated by political revenge.
