Sajwani and Damac Properties Worked Hard to Survive the Property Crash of 2008

Posted by Benjamin on May 18, 2017 with No Comments

From 2007 through 2009 the world went through a financial crisis different from any other one in economic history.

It began in the United States with the fall of major Wall Street investment banks after the revelation that they had actively and knowingly bought and sold consolidated debt instruments based on repackaged home mortgages which would soon have a high foreclosure rate.

However, many banks and other financial organizations including trust and pension funds around the world had also bought large amounts of mortgage collateral instruments. Read more: Meet Our Board | DAMAC Properties

They had faith in the historically reliable financial solvency of the American home buyer. Although some suffered foreclosure, most made their payments on time.

It came as a worldwide shock when the world discovered that many mortgage companies were approving loans to anybody who could sign their name. They no longer verified income and the overall capacity to make the monthly mortgage payments, because the major banks of the world were taking the financial risk.

In July 2008 Hussain Sajwani of Damac Properties noticed the fall of demand for his luxury properties. The Damac owner founded Damac in 2002 in the United Arab Emirates and Dubai. Learn more about DAMAC owner: https://communityportal.loams.ae/

Some people told him the economic slowdown was caused by summer, but Hussain Sajwani realized the situation was worse than that. He cut costs to preserve cash. He cut back on some of his projects. Sometimes Hussain Sajwani had to take strict measures against buyers who were also suffering from the economic conditions.

By taking these strict measures to conserve cash, Damac preserved cash, and is now the largest real estate developer of luxury properties in the Middle East. They have also expanded into North Africa, Lebanan, Qatar, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. He recently opened a golf course in one of his residential properties tied in with Donald Trump.

A second one, designed by Tiger Woods, is still under construction but should open at the end of 2018. Hussain Sajwani and Donald Trump made those deals for Damac back in 2013, long before Trump’s electoral campaign began.

Recently Trump said that Hussain Sajwani had made him a terrific offer, but he had to turn it down. As president, he has to be careful of perceived conflicts of interest. However, the Trump family and the Hussain Sajwani family remain friends.

Why George Soros Supports the Left

Posted by Benjamin on April 14, 2017 with No Comments
in News

The Champion of the Left

George Soros has made himself the most consistent defender of the Left in America today. No one has donated as much to the Left or made liberal causes as important to their everyday life. With a fortune exceeding 25 billion, nobody is quite prepared to handle the fight for the progressive Left like George Soros. His effort shaven’t come without criticisms from the Right. Many see him and his efforts to bring about a more global society as a means of enacting world domination. These claims are far from true, but they represent an unfortunately common misunderstanding of him.

Fighting Against Oppression Worldwide

The world is not a particularly kind place to those who happen to live under oppression. In far too many corners of the world people are forced to live meager existences and are unable to find a way to define their own goal in life and decide what they want to be. This is where the work of the Open Society Foundation, led by George Soros, is coming in to make the world a better place. Open societies are societies that allow customers to choose exactly how their lives are going to play out. To George Soros this is the ideal way to run any society. Visit Project Syndicate to learn more about George.

Working to Change Things

He has made himself a prominent supporter of many of the most important political movements of our day, He was an early supporter of Black Lives Matter and he is currently a supporter of MoveOn as well. He wants to see young people around the world do everything they can to make their world a better place and help create a more tolerant society no matter where they are.

How Trump Factors In

Donald Trump was something of a wild card last year. Nobody expected him to get as far as he did and nobody believed he would create the sort of chaos that he managed to. George Soros is none too happy with this. He wants to do everything he can to fight Donald Trump and to stop him from carrying out his agenda. This isn’t the first time he has had to face authoritarianism and it won’t be his last.
